Final Score - Box score - 7 innings
OSU 11
WVU 0

Beaver starter Ben Wetzler threw a complete game (albeit 7 inning) shutout yesterday, allowing just one hit. He walked one Mountaineer and struck out 7. The Beavers provided plenty of offense busting the game open with a 7-run 7th.

The Beavers added onto a 1-0 lead in the 5th, after Jake Rodriguez, who singled, advanced to third on two passed balls. Danny Hayes and Ryan Barnes walked, and Tyler Smith hit an RBI groundout to extend the Oregon State lead to 2-0. Michael Conforto drove in the remaining runners with a 2-out, 2-run double. Although the Beavs loaded the bases again, they failed to score.


In the 7th, Tyler Smith hit a bunt single, and Conforto was hit by a pitch. Dylan Davis moved them over with a groundout, and after another Barnes walk, Kavin Keyes hit a sacrifice fly. J-Rod earned his 2nd and 3rd RBI's on the day with a double, Hayes walked again, and they both moved ahead 90 feet on a wild pitch. John Tommasini walked, loading the bases, and Joey Matthews did the same. After a run-scoring wild pitch, the inning looked like it could come to an end when Smith hit a flyball to right, but it was dropped, scoring 2 more runs, giving Oregon State a 11-0 lead, which would be the final score.

Go Beavers!
