Baseball Drops 6-2 Decision At San Diego

Feb. 8, 2002

SAN DIEGO, Calif. - Oregon State University's baseball team dropped a 6-2 decision to University of San Diego on Friday afternoon.

Oregon State's starting pitcher Joshua Garcia pitched three scoreless innings before the Toreros (7-0, 0-0 WCC) opened up the fourth inning with four straight hits including a run scoring double by Jason Marian. Left fielder Joey Prast and freshman third baseman Freddy Sandoval followed with RBI singles to extend USD's lead to 3-0 and knock Garcia out of the game.

'We didn't play very well today,' said OSU head coach Pat Casey. 'We got ourselves out of trouble early with our defense, we should have made some adjustments at the plate against their pitcher.'

The Beavers (2-2, 0-0 Pac-10) scored both of their runs in the eighth inning. Junior Brian Bardon reached base on a two-out single to center field which was followed by Jason McBride's double to right. Sophomore outfielder Seth Pietsch put OSU on the board when he knocked in both runs with a single to right field.

'They outplayed us, and I was disappointed with our energy for the game,' said Casey. 'I didn't think we played with a tremendous amount of energy, and when you play in someone else's park at the beginning of the season, you have to do that if you expect to win.'

Bardon and junior Chris Biles each finished with two hits for the Beavers.

Oregon State and San Diego square off for the second game in the series on Saturday at 1 p.m.
