OSU vs. Portland Game 3 Thoughts

First off, the "pending" game has finally ended. The Beavers record is now completely up to date. For those of you wondering, it's 22-18. 

Today, the game started 4-0 in the bottom of the fourth. The Beavers emerged victorious 4-1. While a win is a win, it's somewhat not a good sign that the Beavers couldn't score a run in five innings. And how weird must it feel to not score a run on a given day but still win. The linescore:

Correction: The Beavers were leading 3-0 heading into the bottom of the fourth, which means they did score a run on Wednesday, Jordan Lennerton's solo home run in the fifth. Complete oversight on my part. Thanks to Konce for sending that in.

 

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 R H E
Oregon State 0 0 0 3 1 0 0 0 0 4 8 0
Portland 0 0 0 0 1 0 0 0 0 1 4 0

 

James Nygren continued where he left off on April 15, logging a total of 7 innings, giving up one run on three hits. He walked one and struck out four.

Kraig Sitton and Taylor Starr combined to complete the eighth inning, then Rhoderick took over in the ninth. Kevin recorded his tenth save of the year, forcing a popup and striking out two.

Jason Ogata was the only Beaver with a multi-hit game, and he had both of those hits before the day even started. Robertson, Wong, Wallace, George, Lennerton, and Nash each had a hit a piece.

The Beavers still have twelve games remaining on their schedule, the first of those coming Friday against UCLA at Goss Stadium. The Beavers need to win all of their six remaining Pac-10 games to improve their playoff stock and get the ball rolling in the right directions as the playoffs approach.

GO BEAVERS!
