Game Notes / California Series Notes

Oregon St. continues their Pac-12 series at California tonight.

The Beavers beat the Bears 10-4 last night, overcoming a number of base running errors, multiple missed scoring opportunities, and a bit of a bullpen burp late, but also capitalizing on 4 errors.

Jeff Hendrix led the way, with 3 hits and 3 RBIs, on a 3 run home run that put the game out of question, his first collegiate career round-tripper. Hendrix also tripled, and scored 4 times, after reaching base 5 times in 6 trips to the plate.

Dylan Davis also had a big night, as the Pac-12 leader in RBIs added 4 to his season total of 51, including 3 on a bases loaded double that moved a 3-0 game to a 6-0 margin in the 7th inning.

Oregon St. will start their usual Saturday arm, sending sophomore RHP Andrew Moore (4-3, 2.87 ERA) to the mound. Moore out-dueled Oregon ace Jeff Gold last Saturday, going 8+ innings in the Beavers' 4-2 win that was head coach Pat Casey's 700th win at Oregon St.

Moore walked 3 and gave up 4 hits, which resulted in 2 runs, but struck out 7 Ducks.

California will counter with senior LHP Kyle Porter (4-5 3.19 ERA). Porter took the loss last Saturday, in a 4-1 defeat that was the only game the Bears dropped across the bay in Palo Alto against rival Stanford during Pac-12 Rivalry weekend.

Porter went 7 innings, giving up 10 hits, which resulted in all 4 Cardinal runs, and he also hit 3 Stanford batters, though he didn't walk any, and struck out a half dozen. It wasn't a terrible outing, but he encountered a complete game 5-hitter by Stanford's John Hochstatter, who is 6-1 this season, and only got 1 first inning run of offensive support.

An Oregon St win tonight or tomorrow will give the Beavers their 11th series win against the Bears in 16 years since the Pac-12 reunification. Oregon St. has won 8 in a row over California, and is looking for a 3rd sweep in a row.
