Five of the six potential successors to Gardner Minshew under center participated in the Washington State football team’s first scrimmage of the spring Saturday at Martin Stadium, where Cougar signal-callers combined for seven TDs to just one interception.

Graduate transfer Gage Gubrud did not participate as he continues to work his way back from an injury he sustained while training in mid-March.

Redshirt senior Anthony Gordon led the way with four TDs and no picks, throwing for 138 yards while going 14-for-23. The Cougars’ lone pick was thrown by their other redshirt senior, Trey Tinsley, who was second in yards throwing (127) while completing 11 of 19 pass attempts.

The Cougars’ leading reciever on Saturday was Brandon Arconado, who reeled in 121 yards and three TDs on seven catches, one of those scoring plays doubling as the longest play of the day — a 50-yard bomb from Cammon Cooper.

Scoring plays — Borghi 4 run. Arconado 8 pass from Bledsoe. Arconado 10 pass from Bledsoe. Winston Jr. 4 pass from Gordon. Patmon 15 pass from Gordon. Arconado 50 pass from Cooper. Bell 15 pass from Gordon. Bell 5 pass from Gordon.

BASEBALL

Cougs fall to Cal, stay winless in league

BERKELEY, Calif. — Giving up four runs in the second inning and later falling behind by seven, the Washington State baseball team fell 9-5 to California to finish 0-3 in their Pac-12 series.

Cameron Eden batted 4-for-4 and scored three times for the Bears (17-11, 5-4) and Sam Wezniak homered and tallied three RBI.

Collin Montez hit a solo homer for the Cougars (7-23), who remained winless in nine league games. Tyson Guerreo batted 2-for-4 and pitched a hitless ninth.

The loss went to starter Hayden Rosenkrantz, who allowed six hits and five runs in 3.1 innings. The Cougars used six pitchers.

Getting the win was Cal reliever Rogelio Reyes, who scattered seven hits and four runs over six innings. The Bears led 9-2 before WSU came up with three runs in the eighth.

In a 6-1 Saturday loss to Cal, Washington State starting pitcher A.J. Block allowed four home runs — and all of Cal’s scores — while the Cougars’ offense struggled with any kind of consistency.

Cal starter Jared Horn went eight innings, allowing six hits and a run on 94 tosses. Block went 5 2/3 with five punch-outs, but permitted 10 baserunners.

The Cougs left seven on base, and never furnished a true threat. WSU’s bright spot came right away — Dillon Plew hit a 3-1 pitch over the right field fence for the Cougs’ first leadoff homer in eight years, and their only run of the day.
