March 13, 2004
CORVALLIS, Ore. - Oregon State University (12-4) scored seven runs in the bottom of the fourth inning Saturday afternoon to breeze by the Gonzaga University Bulldogs for the second straight day at Goss Stadium at Coleman Field in Corvallis. OSU pounded out 15 hits to down Gonzaga 13-3, after also winning the series opener by 10 runs. Gonzaga fell to 5-11 on the season and will play the series finale tomorrow afternoon at 1 p.m.
Shea McFeely was the big offensive weapon for the Beavers as he put OSU up in the first inning with a three-run home run off Gonzaga starter Ed Clelland (0-3). Andy Jenkis increased the Oregon State lead to 4-0 in the third with an RBI single up the middle. Clelland would then retire two of the first four Oregon State batters in the fourth before Mike Lissman connected for a two-run single to left. McFeely would later cap off the Beavers seven-run outburst with a two-run double to center.
Oregon State continued to add runs in the sixth as Jenkis homered to lead off the frame. Gonzaga finally broke through against OSU starter Andy Baldwin (3-2) in the seventh as Marshall Bratton homered to left. Baldwin would finish out the inning allowing only six Gonzaga hits on the day and the one Bratton home run.
Gonzaga added two final runs in the eighth innings as Kiel Thibault wrapped up a 3-for-4 day with an RBI single to right. Bobby Carlson drove home the final Bulldogs run with an infield ground out. Brad Welker would be the only other Gonzaga player with multiple hits going 2-for-5. Six Oregon State players reached at least two hits with Jenkis leading the way with a 3-for-3 afternoon.
