Oregon State baseball improved to 33-3 on the year on Friday in front of the 12th largest crowd in Goss Stadium history. The highlight for many Beaver fans was the return of right handed pitcher Drew Rasmussen, who secured the save, after more than a calendar year since his last game.
USC scored first off a safety squeeze in the top of the second inning from Cris Perez. The Beavers immediately took the lead in the next frame. It’s tough to explain how it happened, so check out the video instead.
That error by the Trojans was the only one of the game. Grenier added another run in the eighth with an RBI single that scored Jack Anderson. Oregon State had nine hits to USC’s one on the night
Starting pitcher Luke Heimlich went eight full innings and earned seven strikeouts giving up only one hit. Mulholland made a brief appearance in the 9th before Rasmussen took the mound to get the final two outs.
The series picks back up tomorrow at 1:35 PM PT.
