Huskies rally past Beavers

CORVALLIS — The Oregon State baseball team dropped the final game of a three-game series to Washington 6-4 Sunday at Goss Stadium. The Beavers took the first two games of the series, sweeping a doubleheader Saturday.

Six Oregon State pitchers combined to allow just six hits, but the Huskies managed six runs off eight walks. The Huskies (17-8, 1-2 Pacific-10 Conference) scored two runs in the top of the third inning on a run scoring double and a wild pitch coming from Oregon State starting pitcher Jorge Reyes, bringing the score to 2-1 in favor of the Huskies.

Reyes went 42/3 innings, giving up three hits and two runs, none earned. He walked four but struck out a season-high seven batters.

Down 2-1, Oregon State (13-8, 2-1 Pac-10) rallied with two outs in the bottom of the fourth starting with back-to-back walks by Drew George and Ryan Ortiz. John Wallace came up next and singled, scoring George. Ortiz advanced to third and Wallace to second on the play on a throwing error with Washington trying to get George at the plate. Washington's starting pitcher, Cam Nobles, then balked scoring Ortiz, and giving OSU a 3-2 lead.

The Huskies regained the lead with three runs in the top half of the sixth inning. They scored two runs with two outs on a hit by Bradley Boyer and a wild pitch by Oregon State reliever Kraig Sitton, making it a 5-3 game.

The Huskies added one run in the top of the eighth with a sacrifice fly to deep center field by Wilcox, scoring David Bentrott from third.

Elliot Cribby pitched 11/3 innings for his first save of the season.

Blake Keitzman (0-3) took the loss for OSU after allowing two hits and two walks in one inning of work.
