Zack Reser picked up the win for Oregon State 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.
