Cougars Drop the Ball and Pac-10 Opener

With one out to go for victory, Washington State dropped the ball, literally.

The Cougs dropped their Pac-10 opener last night to the University of Washington in Seattle on a freak two-out error to end the game.

The Cougars, who led 2-1 in the bottom of the ninth inning, did everything they could to give this one away.

Needing just one out to end the game, WSU pitcher Adam Conley hit a Husky batter, advancing him to base.

The Huskies gained another base runner when catcher Jay Ponciano committed defensive interference, preventing the next batter from hitting a pitch.

Left fielder Brett Jacobs then dropped one of only three Husky hits the entire game, a fly ball, bringing the two Husky base runners home. UW won, 3-2.
