WSU baseball lost 4-2 as No. 3 Stanford University completed the series sweep Sunday.

Junior right-handed pitcher Parker McFadden started on the mound for the Cougars (15-31-1). He allowed one run on two hits while striking out a career high nine batters in four and two-third innings.

A leadoff home run in the bottom of the second inning was the only run the Cardinal (43-8) managed off McFadden.

The Cougars took the lead with two runs in the top of the fourth. Junior infielder Andres Alvarez leadoff the inning with a single and advanced to third base on a double by senior outfielder Blake Clanton.

Senior outfielder JJ Hancock singled up the middle to plate both runners and give WSU a 2-1 lead.

McFadden loaded the bases with two outs in the fifth on two walks and a hit by pitch. Sophomore left-handed pitcher AJ Block replaced McFadden and got the first batter he faced to line out, ending the threat.

Stanford scored three times in the sixth inning to take the lead. Block hit a batter and walked a batter before allowing three straight singles to give the Cardinal a 4-2 lead.

WSU tallied 10 hits on the day compared to six by Stanford.

The Cougars return home to face University of Utah 4 p.m. Thursday at Bailey-Brayton Field in their final series of the season.
