Baseball: No. 2 Beavers keep on winning
Thompson's first collegiate game saw the right-hander strike out three while allowing three hits and two walks. The freshman retired 10 of his last 11 batters faced after allowing a single and a walk to open the fourth inning. He is now 1-0.
The Beavers (4-0 overall), who stranded 11 runners through the first six innings, pushed ahead with the five-run seventh highlight by a Jeff Hendrix single that drove in two. Trever Morrison and Andy Peterson, in addition to Conforto's single, also drove in runs via a walk and groundout, respectively.
Will Lydon took the loss for Pacific and is 1-0 on the year. The right-hander started for the Tigers (1-3) and worked 3 2/3 innings, allowing three hits and a run.
The Beavers out-hit their opponent for the first time during this four-game trip. Kavin Keyes led the team with three base knocks while Conforto and Ice each had two.
The Beavers return to the Phoenix area next weekend for four games in Surprise.
OSU takes on Nebraska Friday at 12 p.m. PT (1 p.m. in Arizona) to open the Aramark Pac-12-Big 10 Tournament.
The Beavs then face Michigan State, Indiana and Washington Saturday through Monday.
