Oregon State Baseball Drops Opener In Starkville


STARKVILLE, Miss. – Christian Chamberlain set a career-high with 12 strikeouts but the Beavers were unable to hang on to a late lead in a 6-2 loss Friday afternoon at Dudy Noble Field at Polk-DeMent Stadium.

Oregon State held a 2-0 lead entering the bottom half of the eighth thanks to RBI singles from Andy Armstrong in the fifth and Troy Claunch in the eighth. Mississippi State, however, tied the game at two on a bases-loaded single by Justin Foscue and took a three-run lead on a home run by the following batter, Brandon Pimentel.

Chamberlain surpassed his previous single-game high for strikeouts – 11 against Arkansas in the 2018 College World Series – in 5 1/3 innings of work. The lefty held Mississippi State to just two hits and two walks in his second start of the season. He struck out the side in both the third and fifth innings.

He did not figure in the decision.

The loss went to lefty Cooper Hjerpe, who struck out two in an inning of work but allowed three hits and three runs. He is 0-1 this season.

The win went to Bulldogs’ (4-0 overall) reliever David Dunlavey, who held Oregon State (2-3) to two hits and a run in three innings. He is 1-0.

McMahan paced the Oregon State with two of the Beavers’ six hits.

Mississippi State started righty Carlisle Koestler, and he went three full innings, reaching 68 pitches before being relieved by Landon Sims to start the fourth. Koestler did not figure in the decision after allowing two hits and two walks with four strikeouts.
