Beavers Top San Diego State 10-6

Oregon State scored eight runs in the final three innings to beat San Diego State 10-6 on Friday afternoon in the Clash of the Conferences baseball tournament at Municipal Stadium. The Beavers (7-5 overall) then had their three-game winning streak snapped with a 10-8 loss to Cal State-Northridge on Friday night.

The Beavers wrap up their portion of the tournament against San Diego on Saturday at 10 a.m. Oregon State will play its home-opener Tuesday with a 3 p.m. game against Portland.

OSU leftfielder Seth Pietsch had a 5-for-10 day with two doubles and a homer. Tony Calderon was 5-for-with a homer and a double in the two games for the Beavers, while Jacoby Ellsbury had his first career homer.

Against San Diego State (5-9), OSU trailed 5-1 after four innings but rallied for its third straight win. Paul Richie's bases-loaded triple in the top of the eighth inning gave Oregon State a 7-6 lead. On SDSU reliever Ben Leuthard's first pitch after coming out of the bullpen, Richie ripped a sharp Recuenco's single to make it 8-6.

'I was just looking for a pitch over the plate that I could handle,' Richie said. 'I got one, and I put a good swing on it.'

The result wasn't what Richie expected. It's not often that a catcher gets a triple on a ground ball between the first and second basemen.

'I was real surprised,' Richie said. 'I got back into the dugout and I was wondering what happened to the rightfielder.'

In the ninth, Calderon added a two-run homer - his third homer of the season - to put OSU in front 10-6. Calderon finished the game 3-for-4, while Pietsch was 2-for-5 with two doubles, Recuenco was 2-for-3 and Richie was 2-for-4.

Mike Ekstrom earned the win in relief, pitching a scoreless 1 1/3 innings to improve his record to 2-1. Jon Koller got his second save of the season, retiring the final five Aztec hitters.

Against Cal State-Northridge (4-11), the Beavers jumped out to a 4-0 lead in the top of the second inning the the Matadors came back to end an eight-game losing streak. OSU had beaten CSUN 10-6 on Thursday night, and Friday's conditions grew similarly cold and windy as darkness fell.

Andy Jarvis' two-run single to right capped the Beavers' three-run second inning, but the Matadors came back with three runs in the bottom of the second against OSU righthander Ben Rowe. Cal State-Northridge added four more runs in the third to chase Rowe, taking a 7-4 lead.

OSU cut the lead to a single run at 8-7 with two runs in the seventh, including Ellsbury's homer. The Beavers twice cut the lead to a single run at 8-7 and 9-8, but an unearned run in the bottom of the eighth put CSUN up 10-8 going into the ninth.

Walks to Calderon and Scott Nelson made in put the tying runs on base with one out, but Matador reliever Kyle Jean struck out Richie and got Tyler Graham to ground out to end the game.
