Stefen Romero hit his third home run in four games but the Oregon State baseball team lost to No. 19 San Diego. 4-1, Monday night in a non-conference game at Goss Stadium. Kraig Sitton scattered five hits and two runs in 5 2/3 innings in his first career start. But the Beavers managed only Romero's 12th home run of the season in the loss, which sent them to 24-18 on the year, and stopped a potential four-game win streak after Oregon State swept Oregon last weekend.
10 Games Is The New Standard
Stefen Romero went 2-for-3 Monday night, extending his hit streak to 10 games, the longest by an OSU player this season. He is 16-for-38 (.421) with three home runs and eight RBI during it.
Santos Starts It Off Well
Adalberto Santos has batted leadoff for the Beavers in eight of their last nine games. He has reached base via a hit, walk or error in his first at bat in all eight of those games.
The OSU pitching staff has been strong of late, posting a 2.54 ERA in 39 innings as the Beavers have gone 3-1 over their last four games.
Notes Of Importance
Friday's probable starter, Greg Peavey, is 6-1 with a 2.45 ERA in 18 all-time appearances at Goss Stadium, which includes 12 starts.
Peavey is also the staff's leader at 6 2/3 innings per start this season. He averages 14.5 pitches per inning and has a WHIP of 1.21.
OSU's 222 wins against Washington is the program's most against any one opponent. Pat Casey's 36 wins is third most during his OSU career, behind only Washington State (49) and Portland (45).
Stefen Romero needs one more home run to give him 13, which would be the most by a Beaver since Cole Gillespie had 13 in 2006.
Saturday's game will air live on FSN Northwest and KEZI 9.2. The game is the fifth televised for the Beavers this season and OSU is 2-2 in such games.
