CORVALLIS, Ore. – A six-run seventh inning propelled Cal Poly to an 8-1 victory Friday night at Goss Stadium at Coleman Field, sending No. 24 Oregon State to its first home loss of the season.
A grand slam by John Schuknecht highlighted the six-run inning and dropped OSU to 13-1 at Goss Stadium this season. 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 to no walks.
Andrew Moore took the loss, his first of the season, to drop to 2-1. He finished with a quality start, allowing 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.
KJ Harrison led the Beavers with two hits.
