Oregon State downed Hartford, 13-2, in the second game of a doubleheader Sunday to complete a four-game sweep of the Hawks. Josh Osich picked up his first career victory with 3 1/3 innings of work, striking out seven. The win came after a 9-1 victory in game one in which James Nygren threw his first career complete game. The righty struck out five and scattered six hits and a run to improve to 2-0 on the season. Kavin Keyes had three hits between the two games.
Susac At An Impressive 8 Games
Andrew Susac went 9-for-18 with two home runs and eight RBI over the four-game series with Hartford and extended his hit streak to a career-best eight games. He is 14-for-26 (.538) with 13 runs, 12 RBI, 10 walks, four doubles and three home runs during the streak.
The Oregon State staff limited Hartford to just seven runs over four games over the weekend. That’s impressive. Even more impressive is the fact the Beavers walked just six batters over the four games and struck out 40, including a season-best 15 in game two Sunday. That’s a 6.6:1 strikeout-to-walk ratio. On the year, OSU has 105 strikeouts to 31 walks (3.4:1).
Working The Count
OSU has a Pac-10 leading 78 walks this season, amounting to 6.5 per game. UCLA is No. 2 at 44. The Beavers are also tied for the league lead with 18 hit by pitches.
Berberet Up To His Usual Tricks
Parker Berberet is up to his old tricks again, having posted a team-leading six multi-RBI games and four multi-hit games, which is second on the club. Last season, he had 14 multi-hit games and nine multi-RBI efforts.
Notes Of Importance
• Kavin Keyes is the second Beaver with a five-game hit streak this season. He did so with three hits in Sunday’s doubleheader.
• Oregon State won the last four of five matchups between the Beavers and Ducks last season. Each win came by one run.
• The Beavers’ eight stolen bases in game two Sunday were two shy of tying the program single-season record of 10. OSU already has 17 stolen bases this season, more than a third to the 44 OSU had all of last season.
• James Nygren and Ben Wetzler threw quality starts over the weekend, becoming the first Beavers besides Sam Gaviglio to do so this season. OSU now has five.
