Josh Cushing and AJ Graffanino powered the offense and three Washington pitchers combined to shutout Gonzaga, 2-0, Tuesday at Husky Ballpark.

Cushing homered and Graffanino singled in the other run as Washington (13-8) had just five hits. But, Gonzaga’s bats were stifled and held to five hits also, as surprise Husky starter Channing Nesbitt set the tone for the game.

Nesbitt, a sophomore left-hander from Oakland, Calif., got his first career start and made just his second collegiate appearance.

“I think it helped me stay calm,” said Nesbitt (1-0) on finding out Tuesday morning he would start. “I like being cool and collected. Finding out late helped me stay in the same mind frame I woke up with today.”

He breezed through five scoreless innings, allowing just three hits, two walks and striking out one batter.

SU edges Portland in 10

The Portland Pilots jumped out to an early three-run lead, but Seattle U tied it to force extra innings before claiming a 4-3 victory with a run in the bottom of the 10th inning at Bellevue’s Bannerwood Park.

For the Redhawks (15-9), Michael McCann had the winning RBI single in the 10th, which came after the Pilots (13-12) retired the first two batters of the inning.

Note

• Nearly a week after announcing he would enter the NBA draft, departing UW Husky Dejounte Murray signed with Cleveland-based Klutch Sports Group and agent Rich Paul.

The company’s biggest client is LeBron James who helped start the business with long-time friend Paul.

Murray posted a picture with the Cavaliers star on his Instagram page with the caption that read: Lets Work Big Homie.
