OSU Baseball: Beavs make it nine in a row
Keyes' home run, his first of the season, just cleared the fence in right center on a 3-1 pitch and gave the Beavers a 1-0 lead.
OSU added to the lead with solo runs in the third and fourth innings – on a Utah error and a single by Trever Morrison – and two more in the fifth inning when Dylan Davis doubled off the left center wall and Ice singled in a run on a shot to left center.
The Utes got on the board in the sixth when AJ Young doubled to right center. The double came off Oregon State starter Andrew Moore, who was making his fourth start of the year and first since Feb. 28. He allowed eight hits and one run in 6 1/3 innings to improve to 2-1.
Moore gave the Beavers their 16th quality start in 20 games this season. The win was the 16th of his career and seventh away from Goss Stadium.
Utah starter Bret Helton lasted four innings, scattering seven hits and five runs before being replaced by reliever Zach Adams in the fifth. Helton took the loss and dropped to 2-1 this season.
Keyes and Morrison each had two hits to pace the Beavers, who had 10 as a team.
Utah was led offensively by TJ Bennett, AJ Young and Cory Hunt, who each had two hits as the Utes tallied nine total off five Oregon State pitchers.
The Beavers' victory pushed Oregon State's win streak to nine games, which is tied for the second-longest active streak in the nation. The Beavers are 13-1 in their last 14 games.
Oregon State and Utah conclude the three-game series with a 12 p.m. PT (1 p.m. in Utah) start at Smith's Ballpark. Visit osubeavers.com for links to live video.
