Recap: Old school pitchers duel goes to Stanford as Brendan Beck hurls a complete game shutout to defeat Oregon State, 1-0

May 27, 2021
Pac-12 Networks' Jordan Watkins breaks down the action from Brendan Beck's complete game shutout vs. Oregon State to give No. 15 Stanford baseball the 1-0 win. It was an old school pitchers duel rarely seen in today's NCAA baseball. Both Beck and his Oregon State counterpart, Kevin Abel, went the distance. Abel's only blemish was a sixth-inning homer to Brock Jones. That was all the offense Beck needed. The senior was simply phenomenal, recording ten strikeouts in nine innings while only allowing three hits, as the Cardinal strengthened its case as a legitimate College World Series contender.
