OSU scored in the bottom of the fourth thanks to an RBI sac fly from Jake Dukart. Andy Armstrong later added one in the sixth with an RBI single that scored Troy Claunch.
The Beavers threatened to score several more times throughout the game, but were unsuccessful and stranded ten baserunners in total.
On a day where the Beavers’ options in the bullpen were limited due to the fatigue of so many long games in the past week, OSU was hoping for a big day from Grant Gambrell. They got it.
Gambrell pitched just over 8 innings and tied his career high for strikeouts with 12 on the day. Because Gambrell was able to pitch successfully for so long, OSU didn’t have to reach too far into their depleted bullpen.
OSU next welcomes Gonzaga on Tuesday of this week at 5:35 PM PT before an important series against a Top-20 ranked Oklahoma State team on Friday.
