11-0 was the score after seven innings when the run rule was invoked, clinching the series over Abilene Christian for the Oregon State baseball team.

Drew Rasmussen was the starting pitcher for OSU in his longest stint of the year. Rasmussen pitched six innings with eight strikeouts and just two hits and one walk. His record improves to 3-0 on the season. Jake Mulholland pitched the last inning, in which the batters went down 1-2-3.

Offensively, the Beavers exercised some demons from last night when they weren’t able to get much going. Today, however, OSU picked up eight hits and left only three runners on base. OSU had not one, but two, five run innings on top of an unearned run in the third when Preston Jones capitalized on a throwing error.

Elliott Cary, Cadyn Grenier, and Trevor Larnach had two RBIs a piece while Jack Anderson had three and Adley Rutschman had one.

The series wraps tomorrow at 12:05 PM PT when OSU goes for the sweep and their 49th win of the year.
