JEFF HENDRIX WITH THE DECIDING BASE-KNOCK
OSU Sports Information
Posted Feb 14, 2014
TEMPE, Ariz. – Jeff Hendrix singled to center with two out in the eighth to score two and send the second-ranked Oregon State baseball team to a come-from-behind 4-3 win over Gonzaga Friday night at Tempe Diablo Stadium.
The game marked the season opener for the Beavers, and the win pushed OSU’s win streak to five games in season openers. OSU is now 75-30 all-time in such games.
Caleb Hamilton walked to open the eighth, and moved to third when Trever Morrison doubled to left center. Both scored when Hendrix blooped a single in front of center fielder Brock Slavin, with Morrison, the trail runner, beating the throw from center for the game-winning run.
Zack Reser picked up the win for
after going one full inning. He faced four batters to improve to 1-0. The losing pitcher for Gonzaga, Kenny Smith, allowed four hits and three runs in three innings of relief.
Max Engelbrekt worked a scoreless ninth for the save.
Andrew Moore started for the Beavers and allowed five hits and three runs over six innings of work. He struck out four and walked one while tossing 97 pitches.
His counterpart, Brandon Bailey, worked five full innings, scattering four hits and a run. Neither starter figured in the decision.
Dylan Davis got the Beavers on the board first, in the first inning, with a run-scoring single, and then pulled OSU to within one with a sacrifice fly to left center in the seventh.
Gonzaga, however, capitalized on two Oregon State errors in the fifth to go ahead 2-1. The Bulldogs added their third run of the game in the sixth when Payden Lamb singled to left.
Davis and Andy Peterson each had two hits in the win.
Oregon State continues play at the Husker Classic Saturday with a 10 a.m. PT first pitch, (11 a.m. in Arizona). Beaver fans can visit osubeavers.com for free live audio and live stats.
