Stefen Romero hit his seventh home run of the season, but the 17th-ranked Oregon State baseball team lost the series finale to No. 3 UCLA, 8-2, Sunday afternoon at Goss Stadium. Romero’s home run put the game at a 2-2 tie in the sixth, as it went over the left field fence on a 2-0 pitch. However, Rob Rasmussen, who was able to get the win after going seven full innings, shut the Beavers down until the top half of the seventh when Tyler Rahmatulla hit a solo homer to right that served as the game-winner.
It will be interesting to see if either of the clubs can sweep the series. Neither OSU nor Stanford has swept the series since the Beavers did so in 2006 at Goss. Prior to that, there had not been a series sweep since Stanford did so in Palo Alto in 2001.
Oregon State relievers inherited 21 runners over the last two games against the Bruins. They stranded 17 (80.9 percent).
Oregon State is 13-5 at home this season.
