USC scored six times in the eighth inning. With the victory, USC (24-21, 13-11 Pac-12) avoided a much-needed sweep by Washington State (20-23, 10-11 Pac-12).
The Cougars got on the board first with a run in the second inning on an infield single by Ben Roberts with two outs. The Trojans tied the game in the fifth on a double and a single.
It was all quiet until the eighth, when USC loaded the bases against Washington State starter Tanner Chleborad (2-6). Kellen Camus came on in relief and issued a walk to force in the go-ahead run. The Trojans added a pair of singles, a sacrifice fly and a double, and a 7-1 lead.
The Cougars continue their homestand when Utah comes to town for a three-game series. First pitch is scheduled for Friday at 6 p.m.
