The Beavers improve to 7-3 in the Pac-12 conference with the Friday Night win over Utah. Details to follow. The remaining two games of the weekend series will be played today. The likelihood of heavy rains on Sunday was the reason for the change. Game one will be broadcast in the Portland area on Rip City Radio 620. The second game of the twinbill will begin 45 minutes after the first contest and can be heard on 103.7 THE LEGEND. Here is last night's game story from OSU Athletics:
Oregon State used a six-run second inning to push ahead of Utah in a 6-2 series-opening win over the Utes Friday night at Goss Stadium at Coleman Field.
Adley Rutschman hit his ninth home run of the season to cap the six-run frame, which saw the Beavers collect four hits and two walks in sending nine batters to the plate. Beau Philip and Jake Harvey both drove in solo runs while Rutschman’s shot to left drove in two.
The ninth home run of the year equaled Rutschman’s season total from a year ago.
Utah (8-16 overall, 1-9 Pac-12) scored runs in the fourth and fifth innings, both on sacrifice flies, off Oregon State (21-6-1, 7-3) starter Brandon Eisert, who improved to 7-0 this season. The lefty struck out seven and allowed seven hits and two runs in six innings of work.
Jake Pfennigs, Dylan Pearce and Jake Mulholland coming to hold the Utes to two walks in three scoreless innings of relief.
Beau Philip and Jake Harvey each had two hits to pace the Beavers, who finished with eight as a team.
Utah’s Kyle Robeniol took the loss after a 1 2/3 inning start. He gave up a run and two hits with a walk to drop to 1-4 this season. Riley Pierce worked 6 1/3 innings in relief and gave up six hits and runs with three walks and two strikeouts.
