WSU baseball suffered its second straight defeat to USC on Friday night in Los Angeles, falling 10-1.

The Trojans (17-20, 8-9) brought the momentum from their 4-0 win over the Cougars (8-27, 1-13) on Thursday into Friday’s matchup, scoring one run in the bottom of the first inning to take an early 1-0 lead.

USC gave the start to sophomore left-handed pitcher Isaac Esqueda, while WSU handed the ball to freshman right-handed pitcher Brandon White to begin the game.

USC blew the game open in the second, scoring five runs off of three singles to take a commanding 6-0 lead.

The Trojans scored another run in the third inning and Head Coach Marty Lees pulled White out of the game after only 2 1/3 innings of work. White gave up seven runs and six hits and walked three batters. He was replaced by freshman left-handed pitcher Tyson Guerrero.

The Trojans didn’t let up on the Cougars and brought in two runs in the fourth and one more in the fifth to give them a 10-0 lead.

The bats were cold for the Cougars the entire night while the Trojans scored a run every inning except for the sixth, seventh and eighth.

Despite the loss, junior infielder Dillon Plew had a solid day, recording three hits in four at-bats. He also scored the Cougars only run of the game in the top of the eighth off a passed ball to make the score 10-1 USC.

WSU will take on the Trojans in the series finale 1 p.m. Saturday at Dedeaux Field.
