PULLMAN, Wash. - The Prairie Baseball Academy from Lethebridge, Alberta, Canada, scored five runs in the top of the 11th inning to beat the Washington State baseball team 14-11 in an exhibition game played Monday afternoon at Bailey Field.
The Prairie Dogs were led by first baseman Gary Moraes who was 5-for-6 at the plate with six RBIs. Moraes had a clutch two out, two-run single in the top of the 11th to help fuel the five run inning. Relief pitcher Terry Bonnar threw six solid innings to pick up the win.
Dusty Edler (Yakima, Wash.) hit two home runs, including a first inning grand slam to lead the Cougars at the plate. Steve Gleason (Spokane, Wash.) also recorded two hits. The Cougs sent 10 pitchers to the mound with only starter Zach Fisher and closer Joseph Glaser going for longer than an inning. Glaser (Aberdeen , Wash.) picked up the loss.
WSU went into the bottom of the ninth down by two runs before Steve Curran (Bellevue, Wash.) hit a two-out, two-run home run to tie the game.
All statistics did not count in this game and the loss does not go against the Cougars 16-12 season record. WSU will next be in action Wednesday night against regional rival Gonzaga at 6 p.m. at Bailey Field.
