From disappointment to elation, the Oregon State University baseball team took Beaver nation on quite the ride last weekend when facing the Oregon Ducks. After the three game set, the Beavers (43-9 overall, 22-5 conference) took two of three and now lead the league by two games with three home games against Washington State remaining. Here’s the brief recap.
GAME 1 - OREGON 3-0
It is difficult to find the right word for this one. Shocking or surprising might be the most fitting. Heading into the biggest game of the year on the road and nursing a one game lead in the conference, OSU didn’t even score. Baffling. It was believed each team needed to state their case for top dog in the Pac 12, and the Ducks’ Tommy Thorpe held OSU in check by only giving up two hits. The Beavers’ Matt Boyd pitched well but the Beavers offense failed to show. Not a great start to the weekend which left Beaver fans mired in nervousness. Meanwhile, the two rivals were now tied for the league lead.no comments no comments
