LOS ANGELES — Ty Jackson and Adam Nelubowich each homered in Washington State's 10-4 victory over No. 6 UCLA on Monday.

The victory for the Cougars (11-10, 2-4 Pac-12) broke a four-game losing streak and avoided a series sweep at the hands of the Bruins (17-5, 4-2).

"Our bats gave us an early lead and took some pressure off our pitching," Washington State coach Donnie Marbut said. "(Kyle) Swannack gave us a good start and (Scott) Simon was great out of the 'pen."

The Cougars scored nine times in the first two innings against UCLA starter Grant Watson (5-1).

In the top of the first, Tommy Richards and Taylor Ard singled with one out. After Derek Jones flied out, Nelubowich drove in Richards with a single. Jackson followed with a three-run blast over the center-field wall to give Washington State a 4-0 lead.

Heidy Wells threw a complete-game five-hitter and went 2 for 3 at the plate, and Jen Schwartz was 3 for 3 with a double and two runs batted in as Central Washington (9-15, 8-11 Great Northwest Athletic Conference) snapped a five-game losing streak with a 6-1 win over host Western Washington (6-20, 4-12).

Jenna DeRosier pitched a three-hit shutout as Western won the doubleheader opener 5-0.

Golf

The Washington State men are 10th and Gonzaga is 11th after 36 holes of the Duck Invitational at the Eugene (Ore.) Country Club. WSU is at 21-over 597 and the Bulldogs at 26-over 602.

• The Seattle U women are 11th at 61-over 637 after two rounds of the Anuenue Spring Break Classic in Kapalua, Maui.
