1:30 PM PDT Scott Santschi and Drew George struck out to get OSU's first outs of the inning. Inham can't hit with his fastball, so he earned those K's primarily with the changeup.

Thru 1 and a half, it's Oregon State 2, Stanford 2
1:40 PM PDT The Beavers will face Brian Juhl, Cord Phelps, and whomever fills the DH spot for the Cardinal.

2:30 PM PDT It will be Barney, Lennerton, and Lissman for the Beavers.
2:32 PM PDT Barney nearly reached on a check swing bunt-ish thing, then Lennerton flied out to left, and nearly caused a collision. Lissman is up now.

2:57 PM PDT Joey Wong threw out Cord Phelps on my vote for the best defensive play of the day so far. Joey had to go to his right for the ball, took it off a short hop near second base, and side-armed it to first to retire the side.
Thru 6, it's still 4-4.

3:29 PM PDT Darwin Barney flew out to end the inning.
After 8.5, it's Oregon State 6, Stanford 4
3:31 PM PDT Patterson will take the hill once again for the Beavers. It appears Turpen will be his replacement when the time comes, as he's been up and down in the bullpen all day.
3:33 PM PDT Toby Gerhart doubled on a ball hit over the head of Lonnie Lechelt at third. Spence comes out to the mound, and he will indeed go to Daniel Turpen.
We are now un-live... if that's a word...
Taylor grounded out, Sorgi struck out, and Castro grounded out after Turpen came in, so it was all good for the Beavers in the bottom of the 8th.
Lennerton singled up the middle, then Kahalehoe grounded out on a bunt to the catcher, advancing Lennerton to third. Lechelt fled out with the go ahead run at third, and ended the inning.
Eddie Kunz came into pitch for Daniel Turpen at this point, and gave up a walk to start the inning. He popped up the next batter, Phelps, to center field, then walked the next batter as well. Molina singled up the middle, scoring Domaracki from second base, and narrowing the deficit to 1 run after OSU took a two run lead into the inning. Turpen walked yet another batter, then hit a batter, scoring another run. This tied the game at 5, then OSU turned a double play to escape the inning.
Joey Wong walked, then Hopkins advanced him to second on a sacrifice. Ogata walked, Canham singled, and Joey Wong was thrown out at the plate by the right fielder, the player that would eventually win the game for the Cardinal. Darwin Barney flied out to right to end the inning.
Anton Maxwell came in to pitch for Eddie Kunz. Sorgi lined out to the left fielder, then Castro grounded out to second. Gallagher walked, then Phelps hit into a fielder's choice that ended the inning.
Jordan Lennerton led off with a home run to center field, giving the Beavers a one run lead, still with no outs. Koa Kahalehoe struck out, Wells singled, then Lonnie Lechelt reached on a error by the shortstop. Wong struck out, but a double steal was in effect, moving Lechelt to second, and Wells to third. Hopkins flied out to second base to leave runners on second and third. The Beavers got one, however, and took that lead into the bottom of the 11th.
August singled down the right field line to start off the inning, then Moon struck out looking. Ratliff walked, advancing August to second. Greg Keim came into pitch for Maxwell at this point, and he got the second out of the inning when they Lonnie Lechelt got August out at third on a fielder's chice. Right fielder Michael Phelps was up next, and he hit a three run home run to left, a walk off homer ending the game.
