No. 30 Washington locked up with No. 1 Oregon State in a pitcher's duel Saturday in front of a Husky Ballpark record crowd of 2,690 before the visiting Beavers broke through with three runs in the seventh. The runs turned out to be the only scoring in a glorious day at the park as the Beavers (30-2, 14-1 Pac-12) held off a late Husky threat for a 3-0 win and 2-1 series victory.
The Huskies used timely hitting, outstanding pitching and dazzling defense Thursday night to beat No. 1 ranked Oregon State, 3-2, Thursday night at Husky Ballpark and snap the Beavers' 23-game win streak.
It's always a big weekend when Washington and Oregon State meet on the diamond. But this weekend, if the sheer rivalry of the series between the two schools wasn't enough, there are some historic implications on the line for the No. 1 ranked Beavers and conference-standings ramifications for the Huskies.
