SEATTLE -- The Gonzaga baseball team got back on the winning path Monday as the Bulldogs erased an early two-run deficit and beat in-state rival Washington 6-4.

Alex Stanford and Clayton Eslick both produced three of the Bulldogs (21-9) 12 hits. Eric Lane and Payden Cawley Lamb added two hits while Royce Bolinger and Brock Slavin recorded one.

Bulldog starting pitcher Kenny Smith (2-0) got the nod for the first time in his collegiate career. The sophomore allowed three runs on seven hits and two walks in 5 1/3 innings en route to earning his second win in back-to-back appearances. Derek Peterson went the rest of the way allowing one run on a pair of hits to earn his second save.

The Bulldogs handed Husky starter Steven Swift his first loss of the season after scoring four runs on eight hits off him.
