Bears Drop Game Two Of Series
BERKELEY – California got two hits from Alexis Bishop in an 8-0, six-inning, loss to No. 23 Oregon State on Saturday afternoon at Levine-Fricke Field.
The Bears (21-14, 3-5 Pac-12) battled and loaded the bases in the first against All-Pac-12 Beaver starter Mariah Mazon, but couldn't push anything across. Oregon State (28-8, 4-4 Pac-12) was led by a three-hit day from leadoff batter, Kiki Escobar.
HOW IT HAPPENED
After the Beavers plated a run in the first, Cal tried to answer back in the bottom half. Acacia Anders led off with a single and Bishop singled after a strikeout to put runners on first and second with one-out. Sona Halajian reached on an error by the shortstop, but a fielder's choice interference out and a groundout ended the Bear threat.
Cal starter Annabel Teperson hung tough, keeping Oregon State off the scoreboard again until the fourth when they added two runs on two hits. It was a five-run sixth for the Beavers that put the game out of reach and ended it due to the run-rule.
Cal and Oregon State wrap up the series at 12 pm PT on Sunday afternoon at Levine-Fricke Field when former Cal head coach and Hall of Famer Diane Ninemire will throw out the first pitch.
