WSU beats UW 5-1 in PAC-10 match up

SEATTLE, Wash. - Senior Jayson Miller tossed a complete game to lead Washington State past Washington 5-1 in Pacific-10 Conference baseball at Husky Ballpark, Saturday.

Miller (7-1) gave up eight hits, tied his career high with nine strikeouts and came within a strike of earning his first-career shutout.  He threw 144 pitches, 87 for strikes.

"Every time we need a win, Jayson Miller gives us a big effort," WSU Head Coach Donnie Marbut said.  "You cannot say enough about him."

Washington State (27-21, 6-11 Pac-10) took a 3-0 with three runs in the top half of the third off Washington (30-17, 9-8 Pac-10) starter Cam Nobles (4-4).  Travis Coulter and Scott Suttmeier opened the inning with back-to-back singles.  Both runners moved up on a wild pitch and Paul Gran drove in the game's first run with a sacrifice fly to right.  Jim Murphy followed with a two-run home run into the Washington State bullpen beyond the left field wall to put the Cougars on top 3-0.  With the blast, Murphy moved into sole possession of the seventh place on the WSU all-time list with 31.

In the seventh, Suttmeier led off the inning by beating out an infield and moved to second when Washington second baseman Bradley Boyer's throw sailed into the dugout.  One out later, Murphy just missed his second home run of the day with a double off the top of the wall in left center.  Suttmeier came in to score as Murphy raised his career RBI total to 151, good for eighth on the Cougar all-time list, to give WSU a 4-0 advantage.

The Cougars tacked on a run in the eighth inning as Michael Weber singled, moved to third on a sacrifice bunt and a ground out, and was scored on Coulter's bloop single to center.

Washington broke up Miller's shutout bid in the ninth with a pair of two-out singles and a two-strike, RBI-double by pinch hitter Ty Rasmussen.
