Offense was limited compared to most of the OSU games we have seen this year. Trevor Larnach got Oregon State their first pair of runs in the bottom of the first with a double to right field that allowed Cadyn Grenier and Steven Kwan to score. In that same inning, Adley Rutschman singled allowing Larnach to come home.

Then in the seventh, the Beavs added to their lead thanks to a fielding error on a throw to first that gave Adley Rutschman a chance to score an unearned run.
In the eighth, Cadyn Grenier tripled to right center, giving Steven Kwan the opportunity to score once again. Kwan had a big offensive day in general, reaching base three times (two hits and a walk) and stealing three bases in the win, on top of his two runs.

Bryce Fehmel pitched a complete game giving up just one hit with four strikeouts with no walks and one hit batter. He improves to 3-0 on the year with the win.
