Aztecs edge #6 Beavers 4-3


For the second straight Tuesday the #6-ranked Oregon State Beavers come up short. San Diego State holds off OSU 4-3 to take game one of the two-game series. The highlights are pro San Diego State. When the Beavs don't win they usually don't release any highlights if the Pac-12 or other Network doesn't cover the game. So I decided some video of the game is better than none. The good news is that Mike Parker is the voice on the highlights but they are all San Diego State highlights. If I had access to the entire game it would be a different story.

Here is the game story provided by OSU Athletics so at least you have an idea on what happened.

Adley Rutschman and Beau Philip tallied two hits apiece but the Oregon State offense was unable to overcome a strong relief outing by San Diego State's Adrian Mardueno in a 4-3 loss to the Aztecs Tuesday night at Goss Stadium at Coleman Field.

SDSU took an early 2-0 lead thanks to solo runs in both the first and second innings. Oregon State, though, jumped on Aztecs' starter Brian Leonhardt with a three-run second;Jake Harvey doubled in a run, followed by RBI singles from Kyler McMahan and Philip.

San Diego State (16-12 overall) pulled ahead in the fifth with a pair of runs and the Beavers (19-6-1) were held scoreless by Mardueno. The right-hander came on in the third and allowed two hits and a walk in seven scoreless innings. He improved to 2-1 this season.

Sam Tweedt made his sixth start of the season for the Beavers and allowed six hits and four runs – three earned – in 4 2/3 innings. He was charged with the loss, dropping to 1-2 this year.

Nathan Burns entered the game in the fifth and had a sharp relief outing in his fourth appearance of the season. The sophomore allowed just two hits and a walk with two strikeouts in three innings.

Rutschman singled in the first and doubled in the fifth. Philip, meanwhile, followed up his run-scoring single in the second with a double in the ninth with two down. He was, however, stranded there to end the game on a ground out.
