OSU Baseball: What's this, a tie?!

WELL THERE'S SOMETHING you don't see very often. After 15 innings on Sunday afternoon at Goss Stadium at Coleman Field, Oregon State's baseball game against Utah was called, resulting in a 2-2 tie due to the Utes’ travel schedule.

The tie game was the first for Oregon State since the 1998 season.

Scotland Church pitched 4 1/3 scoreless innings for the Beavers, striking out three while allowing two walks and two hits. He would have been the pitcher of record if the game had ended with a decision.

Brock Duke tossed 8 1/3 scoreless innings against the Beavers in relief. He allowed six hits but the Beavers were unable to get the winning run across against the right-hander.

OSU went the last 10 innings without scoring a run. Caleb Hamilton drove in the game’s first run in the fifth on a triple, then scored when Michael Gretler hit a sacrifice fly.

The game stayed 2-0 in favor of the Beavers until the eighth when Josh Rose hit a two-run home run. The home run came off Oregon State starter, Travis Eckert, who worked 8 2/3 innings. He scattered four hits and two runs.

His counterpart, Jayson Rose, allowed two hits and two unearned runs in 6 2/3 innings.

Hamilton paced the Beavers offensively, collecting a career-high four hits. OSU tallied eight overall.

The Beavers next take on Portland Wednesday in Keizer, Ore., at Volcanoes Stadium. The game, scheduled for a 6:05 p.m. PT first pitch, is the makeup game from the April 14 rainout. Fans with tickets to the game can use those tickets for Wednesday’s game. To purchase tickets, visit volcanoestickets.com.
