Andrew Susac doubled to give Oregon State an early lead but the Beavers could not hold on and lost to Washington, 3-2, Sunday in the series finale at Goss Stadium. Washington scored the go ahead run in the eighth when Jacob Lamb walked on a 3-1 pitch from Oregon State reliever Kraig Sitton.

Sitton had come in for Gaviglio with one out in the inning and proceeded to walk three straight.
