Gabe Clark tallied two hits and Caleb Hamilton drove in a run in the second inning but that was all the offensive OSU could muster in a 4-1 loss to Washington State Friday night. Ben Wetzler started and was saddled with his first loss after allowing six hits and four runs in 5 1/3 innings of work. Clark singled in the second and ninth innings, scoring after the first one when Hamilton singled up the middle.
Back And Forth With WSU
The Beavers have won seven of their last 10 games against the Cougars, and have taken the last three series. WSU, however, had won eight of the 12 previous games after OSU produced series sweeps in 2005 and 2006.
Moore Away From Home
Andrew Moore is 1-1 with a 6.75 earned run average in true road games this season but has a 6-1 mark and 2.11 ERA in such games all times. In all games away from Goss Stadium, including neutral sites, he is 7-3 in 85 1/3 innings.
Oregon State walked a season-high 10 in the loss on Friday. It was the seventh time this season OSU issued five or more free passes in a game. The Beavers are 3-4 when that happens.
Jackson & Reser
Brandon Jackson tossed 1 2/3 innings of scoreless relief on Friday, and has not allowed a run in six innings this season. He and Zack Reser have combined for 20 innings of scoreless relief this season, have struck out 10 with four walks and 13 hits allowed.
