Didn't get this up last night....
The line-up for the Beavers today will be as follows:
Barney led off the first with a groundout to third base. Joey Wong followed with a single, as did Mitch Canham. With two on and one out, Mike Lissman hit into a fielder's choice, but thanks to an error by the shortstop, everyone was safe, including Joey Wong, who scored from second. There were two on for Jordan Lennerton, and he delivered with a double to right center. Canham scored from second, and the Beavers took an 2-0 lead. John Wallce grounded out to the shortstop, but it was enough to score Mike Lissman from third. Koa Kahalehoe also grounded out, and with that, the Beavers are done in the first.
After UCLA's lead off man Jermaine Curtis flew out to center, Stutes hit one, walked one, and gave up a base hit, and those three runners would all score, tying the game at 3.
After 1, it's Oregon State 3, UCLA 3.
Santschi walked to lead things off, but then after Drew George struck out, Darwin Barney grounded into a double play to end the inning.
UCLA couldn't get anything going either after a leadoff base hit, as three flyouts and a groundout to Joey Wong ended their hopes of producing a run.
Joey Wong led off with a single to right, and Canham singled down the right field line, moving Joey to third. Mike Lissman flied out to left, but it was deep enough for Wong to tag on the play, and the Beavers took a 4-3 lead. After that Jordan Lennerton grounded into OSU's second double play of the day, and we're headed to the home half of the third inning.
The Bruins battled back again in the third, continuing to not let OSU develop a lead. Crawford and Decker were both retired for two quick outs, but then Gabe Cohen homered to right field, re-tying the game. The Bruins would proceed to lead the bases, but the Beavers got out of the inning on a groundout by UCLA's #9 hitter, Ryan Babineau.
After 3, it's Oregon State 4, UCLA 4.
The Beavers went down fairly easily, with a walk and three outs.
UCLA used OSU's unproductive inning to their advantage, as they benefited from another home run, this time off the bat of Brendan Crawford. Stutes put two runners back on after the home run, and Dan Spencer and Co. elected to go to the bullpen for Daniel Turpen. Turp got the only batter he faced in the fourth, Will Penniall, to ground out to Darwin to end the inning, but not before UCLA took the lead.
After 4, UCLA 5, Oregon State 4.
Barney, Wong, and Canham had back to back to back singles to start the inning, with Canham driving in Darwin on his base knock. The Beavers would load the bases, but Koa Kahalehoe flew out to left to end the inning. He's 0-3 so far on the day.
The Bruins would get a runner to third base in the fifth, but couldn't produce.
After five, Oregon State 5, UCLA 5
The sixth was a non-productive inning for both teams, and we're going to the seventh...
Lissman would score on a Jordan Lennerton single, and then the Beavers got two runners in scoring position for Scott Santschi, but he went down swinging to end the inning.
Again, UCLA got a runner to third, but the Beavers held him there as they got three quick outs.
After 7 full innings, it's Oregon State 6, UCLA 5.
The Beavers produced three runs in the eighth, thanks to a sloppy defensive inning by UCLA. Barney walked to start things off, then Joey Wong strick out. Barney advanced to second on a wild pitch, and then Canham was intentionally walked. Lissman singled, then advanced to second on a throwing error by the third baseman. That error allowed both Barney and Canham to score. Then, Lissman scored on a singled by Jordan Lennerton, and there are the three runs.
Down by four, all the Bruins could do in the eighth was produce one run, and that came when Brendan Crawford singled, driving in Jermaine Curtis. Curtis reached on a base hit, then moved to second on a Daniel Turpen past ball. The Bruins saw three OSU pitchers in the eighth; Turpen, Anton Maxwell, and Marc Grbavac.
After 8, it's Oregon State 9, UCLA 6.
UCLA's defensive sloppiness continued, and the Beavers got another run out of it. Wells struck out to start things off, then Santschi singled. He would eventually advance to second on a past ball. Lonnie Lechelt walked, then Barney struck out. The Bruins changed pitchers, and then Lechelt and Santschi each moved up a base on a wild pitch. Wong walked, and then another wild pitch moved each runner up a base. Wong went to second, Lechlet took third, and Santschi scored. Canham would strike out to end the inning. Every OSU out in the ninth was a strikeout, but thanks to two wild pitches and a past ball, the Beavers took a four run lead into the bottom of the ninth.
Justin Uribe lead off with a walk for the Bruins, then Dolan singled to right field. Mickey Weisser was hit, but then Jermaine Curtis grounded into a 3-2 double play, yes a 3-2 double play. Carrithers was hit to load the bases, then Braden Crawford walked, sending in Dolan for free. Big Eddie ended the scare when he struck out Cody Decker, ending the game.
