WSU, WASHINGTON MEET IN NON-CONFERENCE GAMES: The Washington State Cougar baseball team, having won three of its last six games, heads to Seattle this week for three non-conference games with the Washington Huskies.

WSU, 3-10, is coming off two wins at the Banana Belt Tournament in Lewiston, Idaho. The Cougars beat host LCSC 12-4 and Portland 7-1 and lost to BYU 4-0 and Gonzaga 10-0. The Cougars will send Tony Banaszak (0-3) to the mound in the Friday opener at 6:30 p.m. at Husky Ballpark (1500). Bryce Chamberlin (2-0) is expected to start Saturday's 1:00 p.m. game, with either Karl Mejlholm (1-1) or Aaron MacKenzie (0-3) the probable starter for Sunday's 1:00 p.m. game. Washington (6-6) played at the Battle at the Beach Tournament in Malibu, Calif., last weekend, losing to San Diego 5-0 in the first game, and then rallying with a 21-10 win over Cal State Northridge and an 8-5 victory over San Diego State.

Five Cougars currently boast batting averages over .300. Robert Stahlke leads the team at .375, with Bruce Jacobsen at .355. Derek Bruce, who has started all 13 games at shortstop, is hitting .327 and leads the team with two home runs. Grant Richardson, with 11 starts, is hitting .317 and Jay Miller is hitting .316. Miller raised his average after starting all four games last weekend in the outfield and collecting eight hits in 16 at-bats. He also had two doubles and one home run.

Bruce also leads the Cougars with 16 hits, five doubles, 29 total bases and a .592 slugging percentage. After struggling earlier, he was perfect in the field last week with six putouts and 14 assists. The sophomore shortstop hit .429 last week in four games.

Chamberlin, who did not travel with the team for the first two weeks of the season, has won both his outings and leads the club with a 3.75 ERA while throwing 12 innings. He has seven strikeouts and three walks.

Banaszak has had little run support in his four outings, just two runs. His 3.86 ERA over 25.2 innings is second and he also has show solid control with 13 strikeouts and just three walks. Freshman Karl Mejlholm picked up his first win last week, holding LCSC in check for seven innings. He gave up five hits and just two earned runs.
