Ducks fall in series finale

May 8, 2022

CORVALLIS, Ore. — No. 24 Oregon gave up a pair of two-run home runs as No. 2 Oregon State handed the Ducks a 4-0 loss on Sunday at Goss Stadium. 
 
How It Happened: Oregon's Jace Stoffal and Oregon State's Jake Pfennigs battled early as neither team scored in the first three innings.
 
Oregon State (38-9, 18-6) broke the tie in the fourth. After a one-out walk, Matthew Gretler lined a Stoffal pitch over the center-field wall for a 2-0 lead. The Beavers added two more in the fifth, scoring on a Jacob Melton two-run homer after the leadoff batter reached on an error.
 
Oregon (28-19, 13-11) stayed in the game, thanks to some good pitching from the bullpen. Logan Mercado inherited a one-on, no-out situation in the sixth and proceeded to retire all five batters he faced, the last four on strikeouts.
 
Andrew Mosiello relieved Mercado with two outs in the seventh, and set down all four hitters he faced with a pair of strikeouts.
 
Box Score Notes: Anthony Hall made his 100th career start … Brennan Milone (2-for-4) had his 19th multiple-hit game of the season, and the 21st of his career.
