Oregon State Splits Midweek Series With Gonzaga
CORVALLIS, Ore. – Jake Dukart and Wade Mackler each doubled and singled in Oregon State's 5-2 loss to Gonzaga Tuesday night at Goss Stadium at Coleman Field.
The teams split the midweek series after Oregon State won, 11-3, on Monday. The Beavers won two-of-three versus the Bulldogs in 2021; OSU also picked up a 20-4 win in Surprise, Ariz., in February.
Dukart singled in the fifth and doubled in the eighth, scoring on the latter hit when Jacob Melton grounded out to short. Overall, Dukart reached base three times after walking in the first. Meckler, meanwhile, doubled in the seventh as a pinch hitter, then singled in the ninth.
Ober opened OSU's (21-7 overall) scoring with a bases-loaded walk in the first. Gonzaga (17-11), however, scored two in the fifth and three in the sixth to take a 5-1 lead.
Jaren Hunter was charged with both runs in the fifth and took the loss to drop to 0-2 this season.
Gonzaga starter Nico Zeglin picked up the win to improve to 3-1 this season. He scattered three hits and a run with seven strikeouts in five innings.
