The Oregon State baseball team lost for the first time this season, falling to the Ohio State Buckeyes, 6-1.
Bryce Fehmel picked up the loss to move his record to 1-1 on the season. The sophomore got himself into trouble early in the first inning allowing a runner to score on an errant pick-off attempt, but was able to battle back and minimize the damage. The right-hander ended the day with 5 innings pitched, giving up 3 runs on 7 hits including a 2-run home run to Brady Cherry in the 5th inning. Tommy Paul and Brandon Eisert combined for 4 innings of relief giving up 3 runs on 6 hits.
The Beaver offense was no match for Ohio State starter Yianni Pavlopoulos who went 6 scoreless innings while holding Oregon State to just 3 hits. The offense was able to scratch a run across against reliever Seth Kinker in the 7th inning when Michael Gretler hit an RBI double to drive in Elliot Cary. Christian Donahue extended his hitting streak to 6 games, while sophomores Nick Madrigal and Trevor Larnach each picked up a hit to continue their hot starts to the season.
The Beavers will look to get back on the winning track tomorrow versus Nebraska at 3pm.
