Adalberto Santos and Danny Hayes both hit home runs but the 18th-ranked Oregon State baseball team lost the series finale to Stanford, 10-7, Sunday afternoon at Goss Stadium. Santos and Hayes hit their home runs in the seventh and ninth innings, respectively, as the Beavers scored six runs over the final four innings, but it was too little to overcome Stanford’s early lead. The Cardinal scored three runs in the second and six in the third for a 9-1 lead after the Beavers opened the game with a solo run in the first.
Stefen Romero comes into the game with the second-longest hitting streak of the season by a Beaver. He is on a seven-gamer and is 8-for-31 (.258) during it.
The Beavers hit two home runs - one apiece by Adalberto Santos and Danny Hayes - in the loss Sunday, giving OSU 21 and just two shy of last season’s overall total. The Beavers are on pace for 37 this season.
