SALT LAKE CITY — Cadyn Grenier tied a career high with three hits, including a solo home run, but the Oregon State baseball team dropped an 11-8 decision to Utah in the series finale Saturday.
OSU mounted a late rally, scoring three runs in the ninth with two outs on a single by Adley Rutschman and double by Trevor Larnach.
The Beavers dropped to 21-4 on the year, including a 6-3 mark in Pac-12 Conference play. The loss snapped a streak of 14 consecutive Pac-12 series victories for Oregon State dating back to the 2016 season as the Utes also claimed Thursday’s opener.
Grenier’s solo home run, coming in the seventh, marked his second of the year and pulled the Beavers to within two at 7-5.
The Utes (6-20, 3-3), however, answered with a two-run home run by DaShawn Keirsey Jr. in the bottom half of the frame before adding two more in the eighth.
Larnach, Rutschman, Andy Armstrong and Michael Gretler all had two hits as the Beavers finished with 11.
Bryce Fehmel started for the Beavers and allowed nine hits and five runs in 3 1/3 innings. The junior was charged with the loss, dropping to 3-1 on the year.
