3:52 PM PDT What did I tell you, Mitch Canham goes yard again for his second grand slam of the day, one in each game of the double header. He started the day with 37 RBI's on the season, but now has 45. It's now Oregon State 6, UNLV 0. Jordan Lennerton grounded out to end the inning, but not before scoring five runs.

Bottom 6:

4:02 PM PDT: Rain is threatening in Corvallis, but the umpires decide that it's not necessary to pull the tarps on. Lonnie Lechelt flied out to right for the first out, then Wells reached base on a fielding error by Willie Bowman. Ammon flied out to right for out two, then Chris Hopkins flied out to second. The rain is starting to subside now.

The Rebels will go to the bullpen once again, this time for Koji Pupo. So far, Moser has allowed no runs on two hits, walked two, struck out none, and faced seven. It's up to Pupo to see what Moser's line will look like at the end of the day, as the bases are loaded with nobody out.

4:43 PM PDT Casey will not hit, as the Beavers elect to go with Scotty Berke instead. A pick off attempt by Pupo is thrown away, and Lennerton will score. Berke grounds out to third, and the Beavers now have runners at second and third. Chris Hopkins at the plate.
