Bazzana Homers Three Times In Record-Breaking Day; Beavers Take Series At WSU

PULLMAN, Wash. – Travis Bazzana homered three times and broke the Oregon State single-season home run record in the sixth-ranked Beavers’ 10-6 victory over Washington State Sunday Bailey-Brayton Field.

Bazzana broke Jim Wilson’s 1982 record 21-home run season with a leadoff bomb. The long ball was his 22nd of the season, and began a big offensive afternoon for the junior. He hit a solo home run in the fourth and a two-run shot in the seventh for his 23rd and 24th long balls of the season.

He also walked twice in the Beavers’ (35-12 overall, 14-9 Pac-12 Conference) victory.

Tanner Smith hit his fourth jome run of the season in the fifth, while Dallas Macias went 3-for-5 with two doubles to pace the Oregon State offense. Micah McDowell also collected three hits and drove in a run on a ninth-inning doubnle as the Beavers totaled 12 hits on the afternoon.

Nelson Keljo picked up the win for Oregon State. The lefty allowed two hits and a run in three innings of relief of Eric Segura. Keljo equaled a season and career high with six strikeouts and improved to 2-0 on the year.

Segura made his 12th start of the year and worked 4 1/3 innings, scattering eight hits and four runs before being pulled in favor of Keljo.

Duke Brotherton started for the Cougars (20-26, 8-16) and lasted 3 1/3 innings. He gave up seven hits and six runs to take the loss, dropping to 5-6 on the year.
