Five Oregon State pitchers combined to hold San Diego State to three hits in an 8-1 win over the Aztecs Wednesday night at Goss Stadium at Coleman Field.
The five were backed by an Oregon State offense that scored four in the first and ended the night with nine hits and nine walks. Adley Rutschman capped the team’s offensive night with a two-run single in the seventh right after Troy Claunch drove in his fourth run of the season via an infield single with the bases loaded.
The win pushed the Beavers to a 6-3 home mark this season and 20-6-1 overall record. San Diego State, meanwhile, dropped to 16-13.
Jake Pfennigs, the third of Oregon State’s five pitchers, picked up the win after two scoreless innings. He struck out two to improve to 1-1 this season.
Christian Chamberlain started and allowed one hit and one run in two innings, and was followed by two scoreless frames by Andrew Walling. Dylan Pearce backed up Pfennigs with 1 2/3 scoreless, and Joey Mundt closed out the game with 1 1/3 of his own.
Nine Beavers posted one hit while Rutschman, who also walked twice, led the club with two RBI.
San Diego State’s Daniel Ritcheson took the loss after going three innings in his first start of the season. He tossed three wild pitches in the first – which led to the Beavers’ first and fourth runs of the inning. Tyler Malone singled home the second and Ryan Ober reached on a sac bunt and an error to push OSU to a 3-0 lead. Ritcheson dropped to 1-1 after allowing five runs and four hits.
Oregon State opens a three-game series with Utah Friday night at Goss Stadium at Coleman Field. First pitch is scheduled for 5:35 p.m. PT. The game will be broadcast on 103.7 the Legend
