Baseball Concludes Bill Kajikawa Classic With 7-1 Victory Over Southern Utah

Feb. 2, 2002

MESA, Ariz. - Ben Rowe pitched five scoreless innings and Chris Biles homered and drove in three runs as Oregon State (2-1) defeated Southern Utah 7-1 Saturday at Hohokam Park in the Bill Kajikawa Classic.

Biles gave the Beavers a quick 1-0 lead with his triple to center field in the first inning, which scored Kerisi Reynolds. OSU broke things open with a four-run third inning, highlighted by Biles' two-run homer and RBI singles by Brian Barden and Andy Jarvis.

'It's always nice to win on the first weekend,' OSU head coach Pat Casey said. 'There was no memory loss of last year's first series (The Beavers were outscored 52-28 and lost all three games to Cal State Northridge). The players that are still here were well aware of that.

'We made plenty of mistakes, but for a team that hadn't been on the field since Oct. 22, we did pretty well to win two-of-three games.'

Rowe scattered four hits, struck out two and walked three in his first start of the season. Mark McLemore and Craig Hays both struck out two hitters in their one inning of relief for Oregon State, which used five relief pitchers on the day.

Barden and Jarvis both finished with two hits, including one double apiece. Jarvis scored OSU's final run when Kane TenPas was caught a run between first and second base in the fifth inning. The Beavers other run was unearned.
