Final Score: Oregon State 2, Oregon 0 (Box score)

Tyler Waldron had a great outing, pitching seven and a third innings, striking out ten Ducks along the way. He picked up the win, and moves to 5-3 on the year. 

Equally impressive was Oregon starter Alex Keudell, who through eight nearly perfect innings, giving up just four hits, while striking out six, and came away with the loss. He moves to 0-5 on the year. 

Kraig Sitton's two pitches in the eighth inning were perhaps the most important of the game, however, as Sitton forced Caleb Tommasini into a 6-4-3 double play to end the inning, after the Ducks had knocked on the door with a triple by Kenny Bartz earlier in the inning. 

The Beavers were able to get just four hits off of Keudell, with Folsom, Miller, Santos, and Wallace each getting a hit. 

Carter Bell again started at shortstop in place of Joey Wong, who moved over to second. Bell was 0-for-2 in the game with a sacrifice, but looked comfertable defensively, fielding three ground balls in the game without an issue. 

The win marks the 500th of Casey's career, something we'll talk about more in the near future and after the season is over. Pat was greeted by Todd Stansbury, Executive Associate Athletic Director, on the field after the game and was presented with the game ball while highlights of his tenure at Oregon State played on the video board. 

The Beavers return to action today with a 6:00 p.m. start time at Volcano Stadium in Keizer, where they'll play the Ducks for the sixth time of the season.
