The win gave the Beavers a four-game sweep of the Bulldogs and sent OSU to its ninth straight victory.
The OSU bullpen, consisting of Trent Shelton, Kevin Flemer, Clay Bauer, Ryan Mets, Scotland Church and Luke Heimlich – held Fresno State to five hits and three walks while striking out four. The Bulldogs scored their lone run in the fifth on a squeeze play. As the Beavers had committed two errors during the inning, the run was unearned.
Flemer, the third Oregon State (13-3 overall) pitcher of the game, and second reliever in place of starter Jake Thompson, picked up the win to improve to 1-1 on the year. The sophomore allowed one hit and one run with two strikeouts in a career-long 2 2/3 innings.
Luke Heimlich, the final OSU pitcher of the day, shut the door on Fresno State in 3 2/3 innings to earn his first career save. The lefty allowed just one hit in 11 batters faced while striking out two.
The Beavers managed just six hits against four Fresno State (7-9) pitchers, but it was enough. K.J. Harrison drove in his 22nd run of the season in the first when he doubled to right, allowing Trever Morrison to score all the way from first.
Gabe Clark made it 2-0 Beavers at the time when he launched his sixth home run of the season over the fence in left.
Oregon State next has a Tuesday midweek game against Portland at Goss Stadium at Coleman Field. First pitch is slated for 5:35 p.m. PT. Fans can purchase tickets at beavertickets.com or by calling 800-GOBEAVS. The Goss Stadium ticket window opens at 3:30 p.m.
