The Beavers (20-6 overall) and Mustangs (8-14) continue the series Saturday at 1:35 p.m. PT.
The Beavers managed just four hits off Cal Poly starter Casey Bloomquist, who picked up the win to improve to 2-2 on the year. The right-hander tossed a complete game, striking out three and walking none.
Andrew Moore took the loss, his first of the season, to drop to 2-1. He allowed four runs – three earned – in 6 1/3 innings. He left with a 2-1 deficit but had runners on first and second with one down when Zack Reser came on in relief. By the time the frame was over, OSU trailed 8-1.
K.J. Harrison led the Beavers with two hits.
A free live video stream will be available on osubeavers.com for Saturday's game. Fans can also catch the game live on the Beaver Sports Network and TuneIn.
