Steve Selsky’s sixth-inning home run proved to be the game winner as the Oregon State baseball team concluded its regular season with a 3-1 loss to Arizona Sunday in front of 2,823 fans at Goss Stadium. Selsky’s home run was a two-run shot in the sixth that broke a 1-1 deadlock. It came off OSU reliever Tyler Waldron, who ended the weekend with 6 1/3 innings of work against Arizona, where he allowed just two hits and two runs with 10 strikeouts. Both hits and runs, however, came in Sunday’s finale and sent Waldron to 4-5 this season.
Back In The Postseason
The Beavers are back in the postseason for the second consecutive season and for the fifth time in the last six years, easily the program’s best span of NCAA play.
Even though the Beavers are in the postseason, it will be their first games in the month of June since the 2007 College World Series. No current OSU player has played a collegiate game during the month of June.
• Adalberto Santos enters Friday’s contest by having reached base safely in 37 straight games.
