Last Game
Matthew Gretler and Jacob Melton each homered to send Oregon State to a 4-0 shutout of Oregon in the series finale Sunday. With the win, the Beavers swept the three-game series and the five-game regular-season series over the Ducks. Jake Pfennigs, meanwhile, tossed five scoreless innings, tying a career-high with six strikeouts. Gretler hit a two-run blast in the fourth, his fourth of the season, which was followed by Jacob Melton's two-run home run in the fifth.

Oregon State Notes
• Oregon State is ranked No. 1 for the first time this season, by Baseball America, Collegiate Baseball and the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association (NCBWA). The Beavers were last No. 1 during the 2019 season.
• Oregon State has been in the top 10 of all six major polls for seven weeks this season, and in four straight.
• Jacob Melton went 7-for-9 in the last two games of the series versus Oregon and has overtaken the Pac-12 lead for batting average at .376. He is also first with 61 runs batted in.
• Melton's 61 RBI are good for a tie for eighth in the Oregon State single-season record books.
• Four of the top five players in the Pac-12 for on-base percentage are Beavers. They are: No. 1 Garret Forrester (.483), No. 2 Justin Boyd (.480), No. 4 Wade Meckler (.452) and No. 5 Melton (.451).
• Meckler also leads the Pac-12 with 56 runs scored, which is also tied for seventh in the OSU record books.
• OSU has held opponents to three runs or less in 10 of its last 11 games.
• Garret Forrester (14 games) and Justin Boyd (13 games) saw their hitting streaks snapped Sunday. Boyd is ninth in the Pac-12 with a .345 average and Forrester is just outside the top 10 at .329.
• Jaren Hunter, OSU's probable starter Tuesday, has thrown 9 2/3 innings in four career games versus Portland. He has limited the Pilots to no runs and four hits with two walks and 10 strikeouts.
• He started versus Portland on April 5 in Hillsboro and threw a career-high 5 2/3 innings, getting the win.
• Hunter, over his last two starts, both versus Oregon, combined for nine innings, scattering six hits with no runs and one walk. He struck out seven.
