Baseball Defeats Michigan, 13-2

Feb. 25, 2002

RIVERSIDE, Calif. - Four Beavers had three hits apiece as the Oregon State baseball team defeated Michigan, 13-2, on Monday.

Kerisi Reynolds had career-highs of three hits and five RBI, while Brian Barden, Aaron Fausett and Will Hudson also had three hits apiece.

With the win, the Beavers moved to .500, improving their record at 6-6 on the season, while Michigan dropped to 0-4.

Reynolds opened up the scoring with an RBI single to right field in the top of third to drive in Hudson, who scored the first run of the game.

'I really needed some confidence at the plate. I haven't been hitting to my potential,' Reynolds said. 'After that, I felt a lot more comfortable at the plate.'

Michigan tied things up in the fifth, but Oregon State scored eight runs in the sixth inning to take the lead for good. Reynolds drove in two more runs with another single, and he later scored on Barden's triple in that same inning.

'Today reminded me of last year's team. If runners were in scoring position, we knew they'd get picked up,' Reynolds said. 'I don't know if we had full confidence that we could do what we did today. Then today we put it all together. We were running on all cylinders.'

Stephen Copeland picked up his first win of the season after throwing six innings and allowing three hits and one run. He walked two and struck out five. Jake Postlewait, Don Stykel and Jared Sanders each pitched one inning in relief. Jeff Trzos took the loss for Michigan after giving up seven runs in 5.2 innings of work.

Tom Creighton went two-for-five to extend his hitting streak to nine games, but Chris Biles' 16- game hitting streak came to an end after an 0-for-three outing against the Wolverines.

The Beavers, who picked up a 9-6 win over San Francisco on Sunday, have scored 22 runs and 35 in their last two games.

OSU returns to action at 2 p.m. on Friday, March 1 against Gonzaga in OSU's home opener.
