JP's Weekly Walk-Off: UCLA Bruins

The Beavers head to LA for a weekend series that will bring the scouts out in droves to inspect the collection of top pitching prospects that will take the mound at Jackie Robinson Stadium.  With only a game and a half separating OSU and UCLA in the standings, this will prove to be a pivotal series in the chase for the Pac-10 title.



THE WEEK THAT WAS



  • Friday:  OSU 4 - WSU 2:  With the series starting a day earlier than usual, James Nygren got the nod, and he made the most of the opportunity going 8IP with just 1 ER allowed.  The Beavs plated 3 in the 7th to break a 1-1 tie.   

  • Saturday:  OSU 7 - WSU 6:  Sam Gaviglio suffered a dreadful 1st inning (allowing 4 runs on 4 hits) but rebounded for a great 2nd - 6th innings, and the bullpen and his teammates picked him up in rallying for 2 in the 8th and one in the bottom of the 9th to tally the comeback win.

  • Sunday:  WSU 2 - OSU 0:  Beaver bats couldn't get anything going, as just 4 singles resulted in OSU's second shut-out loss of the season.  Josh Osich was the hard-luck loser, seeing a quality start (6.1 IP, 2 ER) wasted as the team's 11-game win streak came to a close.
