Beavers Win Round One of Baseball Civil War

Beavers 4
Ducks 1
Box Score

Beavers starting pitcher, freshman Scott Schultz, went 4.1 innings while giving up a run on 4 hits, no walks, and two hit batsmen.

The Ducks sent Alex Keudell to the mound, who struggled getting ahead on hitters throughout his 4.1 innings of work. He also had trouble finishing hitters; out of the 10 men who Keudell walked or gave up a hit to, 5 were with 2 strikes against the batter. All in all, Keudell surrendered 4 runs to the Beavers, enough to get stuck with a loss for tonight's game.

By the time Beaver cleanup hitter Danny Hayes came up to bat in the first inning, Oregon State already had a lead, which they held onto for the rest of the game.. Garrett Nash lead off with a double, Max Gordon bunted him over, and Pac-10 Player of the Week Andrew Susac continued his great start with an RBI single.

 

In the third, Max Gordon worked the count full, and topped it off with a single. Susac followed with another single, and this time it was Danny Hayes bunting the runners over. Gordon scored on a wild pitch, and Ryan Dunn hit a dribbler to the shortstop that he was able to beat out, plating Susac. Just like that, the Beavers had a 3-0 lead heading into the fourth inning.

In the top of the 5th, Schultz couldn't find the plate, hitting the first two batters. During the next at-bat, a missed bunt allowed Andrew Susac to throw behind the runner on 2nd, Jake Rodriguez blocked the bag and made the tag, meaning the Beavers had one out. However the next batter singled, and Tony Bryant replaced Schultz. Bryant walked the first man he faced, loading the bases. Duck hitter Marcus

 

Piazzisi drove in the Ducks only run by hitting a grounder to second base, as Bryant got the next man to groundout to third.

Tony Bryant went on to get the win, pitching 2 innings of 2-hit baseball, striking out 4.

But Oregon State responded with a run of their own in the 5th. After a Danny Hayes walk and a Parker Berberet double, Ryan Dunn drove in his second run of the day with a sacrifice fly.

Matt Boyd was summoned from the bullpen to escape a one-out, 2nd and 3rd jam in the 7th inning, and he did just that, not allowing a Duck to cross home plate. Boyd pitched the rest of the game, eventually getting his first save of the season.

This win pushed the Beavers record to 10-3, and they have won 7 consecutive games. The Beavers next game is against the 11-2 New Mexico State Aggies at 5:35 in Corvallis.
