Beavers rally, then can't hold on

May 24, 2002

MESA, Ariz. - Oregon State rallied from an early four-run deficit to build a three-run lead, then couldn't hold on in a 13-7 loss to Arizona State in Pacific-10 baseball Friday night at HoHoKam Park. Aaron Mathews extended his hitting streak to 11 games for the Beavers (31-21 overall, 10-12 Pacific-10).

OSU and Arizona State (33-19, 13-9) continue their series Saturday at 6 p.m. and conclude it Sunday at 1 p.m. Both games can be heard on KLOO-AM (1340).

On Friday, the Sun Devils took a 4-0 lead after one inning but Oregon State evened the game in the top of the second, getting a three-run homer to right by Wick Udy and a sacrifice fly by Mathews. The Beavers then jumped in front 7-4 in the top of the second inning when Jason McBride grounded a two-run single through the right side of the infield and Tom Creighton punched a run-scoring single up the middle.

OSU righthander Ty Kline, who relieved starter Ben Rowe in the second inning, was nicked for a run in the bottom of the third. ASU's Andre Ethier then tied the game when he bounced a two-run single into centerfield in the bottom of the fourth to make it 7-7.

It was still tied going into the bottom of the seventh, but a Beaver error on a potential double-play ball opened the door for a four-run inning for the Sun Devils that put them in front 11-7. ASU added two more runs in the bottom of the eighth on one hit and a pair of walks.

Kline, who worked four innings, suffered his first loss of the season to fall to 6-1; he allowed five furns (four earned) on five hits and four walks (two intentional). Andy Jarvis was 3-for-4 with a double for the Beavers, while Mathews continued his hitting streak with a single to right in the top of the sixth inning.
