USC Baseball Falls 7-3 in Series Finale to No. 5 Oregon State
LOS ANGELES – The USC baseball team came back to tie the game late, but Oregon State put up four runs in the eighth to beat the Trojans 7-3 on Sunday afternoon at Dedeaux Field.
The loss drops USC to 17-12 overall and 4-8 in Pac-12 play, while Oregon State improves to 24-7, 10-5.
After falling behind early, the Trojans finally got on the board with a solo-shot by Adrian Colon-Rosado to make it a 2-1 game. Oregon State would add a run in the sixth to make it 3-1 heading to the seventh.
USC rallied for a pair of runs in the bottom of the seventh to tie the game. Trevor Halsema singled home a run in the inning and later would score from third on a wild pitch.
The tie game was short-lived, however, as Oregon State would score four runs in the top of the eighth.
- Charlie Hurley: 5.1 IP, 2H, 2ER, 4BB, 5K
- Adrian Colon-Rosado: 3-for-4, HR
