Koa Kahalehoe scored the game-winning run in the 10th on a USC errant throw to give the Beavers a 5-4 win Sunday in the three-game series finale. Kahalehoe and Michael Miller singled on consecutive at bats in the 10th to set up the winner. Miller ended the game with three hits and two RBI. Kahalehoe and Romero each had two hits as well.
The game Friday night marks the third time the Beavers will play on TV this season, live or delayed. OSU is 2-0 in televised games this season, both of which happened during the Civil War series with Oregon.
Miller's Magical Week
Michael Miller went 7-for-14 (.500) in the five games combined against BYU and USC last week. The outfielder had a home run, seven runs batted in, three walks and two hit by pitches as the Beavers went 3-2.
OSU's relievers have an 11-4 record and 3.08 ERA in 108 innings this season.
Notes Of Importance
Ryan Ortiz's season-long hit streak was snapped at 10 games on Sunday. It stands as the second-longest streak by a Beaver this season, trailing Adalberto Santos' 14-gamer earlier in the year.
As Ortiz's streak ended, Stefen Romero's picked up. The sophomore hit safely in all five games last week for his second five-game hit streak of the season.
Oregon State entered the week with a .977 fielding percentage, which was tied for seventh nationally (and was first in the Pac-10).
The Beavers were also fifth in the nation in hits allowed per game at 7.79. That trails only Pepperdine, Texas, Arizona State and Virginia.
John Wallace batted second in the lineup Sunday and the Beavers improved to 15-2 this season when the senior bats in the first two spots in the order.
