Adalberto Santos hit his third home run of the season and Ryan Gorton threw five scoreless innings as the 17th-ranked Oregon State baseball team defeated Southern Utah, 11-1, Wednesday night at Goss Stadium. Gorton made his first start of the season and improved to 2-0 after going five full innings. He scattered six hits over that stretch and did not walk a batter while striking out four. Santos opened the game with a one-out solo shot in the first, his third round tripper of the season.
The NCAA released its first national stats pack on Wednesday, and OSU finds itself fourth in ERA, third in hits per nine innings, seventh in walks allowed per nine innings and 14th in fielding percentage.
Don’t Walk, No Don’t Walk
OSU pitchers have issued just 43 walks this season, or less than 2.4 per game. The staff has a K-to-BB ratio of 3.5:1.
