Logan Ice and Caleb Hamilton each walked with the bases loaded in the eighth to help send the Beavers to a come-from-behind win, 4-3 over UCLA in the opener Friday. Ben Wetzler improved to 9-1 on the year with eight innings of work, allowing eight hits and two runs.
Oregon State’s starting staff has been nothing short of solid this season. That’s no surprise. How dominant have they been? Oregon State’s starting pitchers have finished with a quality start in 32 of the team’s 44 games this season (72.7 percent) and the Beavers are 29-3 when that happens. Ben Wetzler, Andrew Moore and Jace Fry have combined for 26 of the 32 quality starts.
Didn’t Score First
All season long, a key for the Beavers has been the ability to score first and hold the lead. The Beavers were unable to score first on Friday night, but were able to defeat the Bruins, improving to 6-4 when an opponent scores first.
Another Night Game
Oregon State has seen some great success in night games this season, going 14-2, including a 9-0 mark at Goss Stadium. OSU is batting .269 as a team in such games, but opponents have been held to a .190 clip. Jeff Hendrix is tops on the club with a .386 average. Ben Wetzler owns eight of the team’s 14 night victories.
Dominant At Home
The Beavers are 17-3 at home this season, and need just three victories to reach the 20-win plateau for the fourth time in the past five seasons. Opponents have managed to score just 35 runs in 20 games at Goss Stadium, and are batting .179. Opposing clubs have a total of 112 hits in 183 innings.
• A win would keep OSU in pace with the 2005 and 2013 clubs for the best record (37-8) through 45 games in a season. Both teams improved that mark to 41-8 before losing the ninth game of the season.
• Head coach Pat Casey owns 25 of the Beavers’ 28 all-time wins versus UCLA.
• Dylan Davis pushed his hit streak to five games with a 2-for-4 effort in the opener Friday.
• The Beavers are tied with Washington for first place in the Pac-12. They lead No. 3 Oregon by four games.
