Baseball: Beavs sweep Utah, now stand 18-3

SALT LAKE CITY – Jace Fry allowed just three hits in a complete-game shutout Sunday as the fourth-ranked Oregon State baseball team swept Utah with an 8-0 win at Smith's Ballpark. Oregon State is now 18-3 overall on the year, and 3-0 in Pac-12 play.

Fry, who is the first Oregon State pitcher to four wins this season, allowed his first hit of the game in the third. He then went on to retire the next eight batters before Anderson singled to right in the sixth. Kody Davis' gave Utah its third hit in the ninth.

Making his first start since his March 8 no-hitter against Northern Illinois, Fry ended the game with six strikeouts. The lefty did not issue a walk. He now has five complete games in his career, with four coming as shutouts.

Oregon State pitchers held Utah to just 15 hits and two runs over the three-game series. Each starter – Fry, Ben Wetzler and Andrew Moore – all tossed quality starts, giving the Beavers 17 in 21 games this season.

Logan Ice paced the Beavers offensively with the first three-hit game of his career; it marked his third multi-hit game of the season. He singled in the second, fourth and sixth innings, scoring two runs in the process.

The Beavers rapped out 11 hits as a team. Dylan Davis and Michael Conforto each tallied two as well with the latter driving in three runs to give him a Pac-12 best 30 on the year.

The win marked Oregon State's 10th consecutive victory, which is tied with Kansas State for the longest active win streak in the nation. OSU has also posted at least one 10-game win streak in four of the last five seasons.

Oregon State has won 24 of its last 30 (80 percent) conference series dating back to 2011, with nine coming as sweeps. It's the third consecutive season OSU has opened conference play with a sweep, doing so at Cal in 2012 and at Arizona in 2013 in addition to this season.

Oregon State returns to action Friday night in a matchup with Arizona State at Goss Stadium. First pitch is slated for a 7:05 p.m. PT start that can be seen live on the Pac-12 Networks.
