The Arizona State Sun Devils (18-24, 10-10 Pac-12) defeated the No. 5 Oregon State Beavers (31-8, 11-7) by a score of 8-5 Saturday evening in Corvallis, handing OSU its first loss in eight games.
ASU trailed 5-4 heading into the late innings, before an eight-batter seventh inning sparked three runs. Sophomore catcher Lyle Lin and freshman third baseman Gage Workman each had RBI singles, while freshman left fielder Hunter Jump scored in a run on a double to give ASU a 7-5 lead.
The Sun Devils scored eight runs off 13 hits in the win, coming against OSU’s No. 2 starter, right-handed junior Bryce Fehmel who fell to 5-2 on the year. Junior center fielder Gage Canning and Jump each had three-hit affairs, while Lin went 2-for-5 with four RBIs.
Junior right-hander Sam Romero pitched 3 1⁄3 innings on 81 pitches. He allowed four runs (three earned) on six hits, before he was taken out for sophomore lefty Chaz Montoya who allowed a run on three hits in 1 1⁄3 innings.
It was left-hander Dellan Raish, however, who held it down for ASU.
The redshirt freshman allowed no runs on four hits in the final 4 1⁄3 innings of play, shutting out the Beavers to improve his overall record to 3-1.
