Beavers Beaten In Opener

May 4, 2001

SEATTLE, Wash. - Oregon State took an early lead only to see it slip away Friday night in an 11-4 loss to Washington in Pacific-10 baseball at Husky Ballpark. OSU (28-19 overall, 8-8 Pacific-10) and Washington (26-5, 6-10) continue their series Saturday at 1 p.m. and wrap it up Sunday at 1 p.m., both games can be heard on KLOO-AM (1340).

On Friday, the Beavers got a three-run double by Curtis Davis in the top of the first inning only to see Washington come back with six runs in the bottom of the first. UW righthander Shawn Kohn went on to pitch an eight-hitter, and the Huskies took control of the game with four runs in the bottom of the fourth.

OSU got a strong performance out of the bullpen from lefthander Jed Mitchell, who went the final 4 2/3 innings in relief of Stephen Copeland. Mitchell allowed one run (one earned) on five hits and one walk while striking out three on a cool, wet, windy night.

Oregon State shortstop Will Hudson continued his hot hitting, going 2-for-3. In his last 10 games, Hudson is batting .378 (14-for-37) with 12 runs scored, during that time, he's raised his batting average from .292 to .312.

Kohn is now 6-1 with a 1.74 earned run average after not issuing a walk and striking out 11, but the Beavers did manage to get to the junior early. With one out, Chris Biles reached on an infield single and then Brian Barden and Andy Jarvis dumped singles into centerfield to load the bases.

That brought Davis to the plate, and he drove a two-ball, no-strike pitch into leftfield, Washington's Jay Garthwaite tried to make a diving catch but couldn't come up with the ball and all three runners scored with Davis reaching second.

Kohn ended the threat, though, by striking out Josh Carter and Bryan Ingram to end the inning. In the bottom of the first, Brandon Jacobson's leadoff homer was the start of seven straight Husky batters to reach base, with two-run doubles by Tyler Davidsdon and Tila Reynolds keying the six-run inning.
