Beavers Down UW 3-1 To Open Series At Goss

CORVALLIS, Ore. – Travis Bazzana hit his 11th home run of the season and four Oregon State pitchers limited Washington to five hits and a run as the second-ranked Beavers defeated the Huskies, 3-1, Friday night at Goss Stadium at Coleman Field.

Bazzana went deep to lead off the Beavers’ offensive portion of the night for the second consecutive game. It got the Beavers on the board first, and produced a lead that OSU added to in the third.

Dallas Macias singled home Mason Guerra for the Beavers’ second run of the night, then later scored when Jabin Trosky executed a squeeze bunt. That run proved to be key as Washington scored its lone run of the game in the fifth when Aiva Arquette singled home Carson Ohland against reliever Nelson Keljo.

Keljo, starter Aiden May and fellow relievers Kellan Oakes and Bridger Holmes limited the UW (6-9-1 overall, 1-3 Pac-12 Conference) offense, with Arquette and Cam Clayton accounting for four of the Huskies’ five hits. The Beaver (19-2, 3-1) staff struck out 13 batters while issuing just three walks.

Oakes earned the win, his third of the year, by throwing 2 1/3 scoreless. He was backed by Holmes, who picked up his fourth save of the year by throwing the last two innings.
