For the third time in the last seven days, the Oregon State Beavers went to extra innings against an opponent. On Saturday, they were victorious against Washington State in the second game of the series 4-3. OSU outhit WSU 13-10 with Oregon State committing the only error of the day.
Since the Beavers also won Friday night by a significantly bigger margin, the series belongs to them.
WSU jumped out to a lead with sac fly RBI in the top of the third by Dillon Plew. Pitcher Tyson Guerrero added to it with an RBI double in the top of the sixth.
The seventh inning then proved productive for the Beavers with three runs scored. That included RBIs from Troy Claunch, Preston Jones, and Alex McGarry. WSU tied the game up in the top of the eighth on a sac fly from Jack Smith.
The two squads were then in a stalemate until the 16th when Jake Harvey singled to score Preston Jones from third to end the epic contest.
Bryce Fehmel had an admirable start today going just over six innings and allowing six hits, two runs, and a walk with eight strikeouts. That’s the second most strikeouts he’s had in one game this season.
Unfortunately, reliever Mitchell Verburg suffered some sort of injury in the 11th inning. While it didn’t look that serious on the broadcast, we likely won’t know the extent of it until at least Sunday,
The series finale is Sunday at 1:05 PM PT.
