Las Vegas, Nev.In her first offensive appearance of the season, junior Alana Ford (Chula Vista, Calif.) went 2-for-4 with a pair of runs and an RBI to lead Oregon State (3-2) to a 6-2 win over the Cal State Fullerton Titans (1-1) on Friday morning.

 

Senior Stefanie Ewing (Scottsdale, Ariz.) and sophomore Audrey Roderfeld (Vista, Calif.) both posted a pair of hits of their own. All three batters each registered a double.

 

Oregon State started off strong against the Titans, scoring three runs on two hits, led by Roderfeld’s one-out two-RBI double. Freshman Ashley Sanchez (Alameda, Calif.) started things off, reaching on a walk before reaching second safely on junior Dani Chisholm’s (Boring, Ore.) bunt attempt with the throw failing to get the lead runner out, leaving runners on first and second.

 

Ewing tallied the second hit for the Beavers, grounding one through the right side to put runners on the corners. Senior Paige Lowe (Tustin, Calif.) chalked up the third RBI of the inning on a deep sacrifice fly to center field on the first pitch seen to score Roderfeld. Ewing advanced to scoring position on a wild pitch, leaving first open for freshman Mary Claire Brenner (Portland, Ore.) to reach on a walk, but both were left as the top of the first ended with the Beavers holding a 3-0 advantage.

 

The Beavers scored another run in the top of the fourth after Ford earned her first hit of the season on an infield single to the shortstop Courtney Martinez. Ford advanced to second on freshman Nikki Chandler’s (Houston, Texas) single down the left line before scoring on an error by Whitney Kroh in left field, moving Chandler to third and Sanchez to second. Sophomore Erin Guzy (Beaverton, Ore.) loaded the bases on a walk but all runners were left stranded as the inning closed with Oregon State widening the gap to four.

 

Ford scored her second run of the game in the top of the sixth, posting her first double of the season to reach. She also picked up an RBI, scoring P. Lowe from second, who reached walked before advancing to second on a ground out. Ford reached third on a wild pitch before scoring on a throwing error by Lauren Lupinetti to second base as Chandler stole second.

 

The Titans scored a pair of runs in the bottom of the sixth behind Torrie Anderson’s two-run shot over the left field fence.

 

Junior Kelly Dyer (Eugene, Ore.) earned the win after pitching 5.0 innings and facing three in the sixth with three strikeouts, improving her record to 2-2. Freshman Paige Hall (Portland, Ore.) came in for 2.0 innings of relief, giving up only one hit and throwing a strikeout on seven batters faced.

 

Cal State Fullerton’s Francesca Gonzales led the Titan offense, going 2-for-3. Pitcher Katey Laban was charged with the complete game loss, making her record 0-1.
