Oregon St. San Francisco Series Concludes Tonight

Game Notes / Gametracker / Live Stream

Oregon St. and San Francisco wrap up their 2 game midweek series tonight at Goss Stadium. The Beavers will be looking to rebound from last night's 5-1 loss to the Dons, ending their season opening winning streak. It would be a good time to do so, as its the final tuneup for the Beavers before they begin Pac-12 play Friday night in Tucson, against defending National Champion Arizona.

Senior RHP Taylor Starr (0-0) will get the call, since sophomore LHP Tyler Painton, originally also a candidate for his first start, was 1 of 4 Beavers out of the bullpen last night.

Starr, who was a starter last year, made his first appearance of the season Saturday against Texas St., and only faced 4 batters, giving up 2 hits and a walk, and 2 runs.

Starr will doubtless be on a pitch count, and with 3 more games in the next 4 days, and last night's deep dive into the bullpen, the pitching staff's depth is definitely going to get tested.

San Francisco is deep into their staff as well, and has to plan for their conference opening series this weekend in Spokane against Gonzaga, so they will probably be resorting to pitching by committee as well.

Oregon St. shortstop Tyler Smith, the Pac-12 Player of the Week, who had his 9 game hitting streak snapped last night, and was hit on the left wrist by a pitch, is listed as "questionable" according to head coach Pat Casey for tonight's game. Casey did say it's not going to be a long term issue.

It's another half-price night at the ball park, with reserved seats $10 and the right field bleachers $5.
