ASU scored in the first inning for the 26th time this season to take a 1-0 lead, but Oregon State came back with six unanswered runs to win the game 6-1. Dustin Pedroia lead off the game with his school record breaking 31st double of the season, breaking Chris Bando's 25 year old record and came within one of the conference record. Pedroia would later score on an Andre Ethier single to centerfield. Ethier and Jeremy West each had multi-hit games while extending their hitting streaks to 10 and 11 games respectively, while Jeff Larish extended his hit streak to 16 games in his one for three performance.
The Devils were dominated by a dominant pitching performance by Oregon State pitcher Jake Postlewait, who gave up just one run in the complete game victory. On the contrary, ASU starter Beau Vaughan fell to 8-4 with the loss. He pitched five innings, giving up five runs and five hits. Carlos Arguello and Mark Sopko also saw time out of the bullpen.
