Davis and Keyes also drove in three runs apiece as the team's Nos. 4, 5 and 6 batters in the lineup combined to 8-for-13 with three extra-base hits, four runs scored and 10 RBI.
Oregon State scored first, in the second, when Hamilton stroked a single to center. WSU, however, answered with two in the bottom half of the frame.
The Beavers answered right back with a three-run third. Davis drove in the first run by walking on a 3-2 pitch with the bases loaded. Clark, the next batter, grounded a bases-loaded single to left, enabling Andy Peterson and Conforto to score.
Up 4-3 after four, the Beavers scored two runs in each of the fifth and sixth innings to go up 8-3. In the fifth, the runs came via a sacrifice fly off the bat of Keyes and by a hit by pitch of Trever Morrison.
Conforto and Davis singled and doubled, respectively, to open the sixth. Conforto scored on a sac fly by Clark and Davis came in to score when Keyes singled to right.
OSU broke the game open with a four-run seventh. Davis blooped in a single for two runs and Clark and Keyes each drove in solo runs to put the Beavers up 12-5.

Moore picked up the win to improve to 3-2 on the year.
Zack Reser came on and worked a near perfect 4 1/3 innings of relief of Moore to earn his first save. The left-hander allowed one hit and hit two batters.
