Jeremy Bleich (2-2) took the loss in his first collegiate start for the Cardinal despite being charged with just one run and allowing only three hits in a career-best 6.0 innings of work.
Cole Gillespie (2-3) had two of Oregon State's three hits and was the only player for either team with a multiple-hit contest.
The teams are scheduled to conclude the three-game series on Saturday (12 pm, PT). Oregon State has announced righthander Jonah Nickerson (5-3, 2.47) as its probable starting pitcher, while Stanford has yet to name a likely starter.
