I got to "watch" this game off and on today at work. Again offense looked very good and I was especially impressed by the Beavers' five runs in the sixth inning after the Tigers just went up by a run with a big sixth inning of their own. It was a very nice response. Romero is still hitting very well and had two doubles and four RBIs including a two RBI double in that all important sixth inning. But he wasn't the only one (check out the box score and play-by-play here)!
Defense and pitching looked to be a little bit here and there today. There were some nice flashes from the pitching crew today: Robles, Gaviglio (win), Nygren, Sitton, and Rhoderick (save) with all of them getting a good amount of SOs (12 total), but the Beavs also did give up eight runs and had two errors. I think this should settle down and will be interesting to see when we face a really good defensive team (like tomorrow with ASU) how well our defense can hold its own.
Here is the OSU site write up: Oregon State Baseball Holds Off Missouri (though I don't think Missouri is ranked 15th right now if that is what that means, for I think the Tigers were 1 and 5 coming in to this game).
If anyone listened to the game please chime in with your impressions!
And if you want a really good distraction before the big basketball game on Sunday, the baseball team is playing Arizona State tomorrow evening scheduled to start at 5:30 PST. ASU is undefeated so far this season (6-0). Should be a good one!
