Notes Of Importance
Stefen Romero extended his hit streak to six games by going 2-for-3 Tuesday night. Romero is batting .391 (9-for-23) during the streak.
Jared Norris also kept his hit streak alive at five games. Norris walked twice and his streak stayed intact because he had no official at bats.

Carter Bell's home run Tuesday was the team's 16th of the season. Of the 16 hit this season, 10 have come from players who are in their first year with the team.
OSU's 15 wins at home this season gives the Beavers 101 at Goss over the last five seasons.
OSU is 2-4 in its last six against the Cougars. Prior to that, OSU had won seven straight. OSU won nine straight in the series from 2001-02.
