No. 5 Beavs best Portland, keep streak alive
A crowd of 1,007 - with a good number of Beaver fans in attendance - saw Hayes double off the center field fence in the sixth inning for his third hit of the day and the key blow. It drove in two during a three-run sixth that helped keep the Beavers' (29-6) record perfect against the Pilots (13-24) dating back to 2007.
Hayes also singled in the second, doubled in the third and singled in the ninth for a career-high four hits and his 10th multi-hit effort of the 2013 season.
Child, meanwhile, was stellar in his seventh start of the season. The right-hander needed just 72 pitches in eight innings to pick up the win. He scattered one run and four hits while striking out six.
He was at his most effective through the middle innings, retiring 13 consecutive batters from the third through the sixth.
Child is 4-1 this season, with three of the four wins coming away from Goss Stadium.
The Beavers scored their first run on a Tyler Smith single in the third, and, after the Pilots scored one in the bottom half of the inning, took a 2-1 lead in the fifth. Max Gordon, pinch hitting for Joey Jansen, executed a perfect safety squeeze, enabling Hayes to come in from third.
Peterson and Ryan Barnes each had two hits for the Beavers, who finished with nine as a team. Barnes extended his hit streak to a season-long 11 games with a 2-for-4 effort as the fifth batter in the lineup.
Portland's Zach Torson made the start for the Pilots and worked four innings, allowing five hits and two runs. The righty, however, was saddled with the loss to drop to 0-5 on the year.
The 17-game win streak is the second-longest ever for the Beavers, four shy of the 21-game win streak against the Pilots from 1959-69. The 1,007 in attendance also marked Portland's first sellout since the Beavers visited Joe Etzel Field during the 2008 season.
The Beavers get back into Pac-12 Conference play this weekend. OSU opens a three-game series at Washington starting Friday at 5 p.m. PT.
