No. 4 Oregon State Rallies to Defeat UCLA In Baseball, 3-1

May 6, 2005

Box Score

LOS ANGELES, Calif. - Fourth-ranked Oregon State scored three unanswered runs in the final two innings as the Beavers overcame masterful UCLA pitching and defeated the Bruins, 3-1 Friday night at Jackie Robinson Stadium in the opener of this weekend's Pac-10 series. Oregon State's Dallas Buck and UCLA's Hector Ambriz were both magnificent on the mound, allowing a combined nine hits over a total of 15 innings pitched before their respective bullpens stepped in.

The Bruins (11-31, 1-12 Pac-10) took the first lead of the pitching-heavy contest in the fifth when catcher Chris Denove lined Buck's 0-2 offering into left-field to bring around first baseman Matt Sharp and the 1-0 UCLA lead. Buck, however, limited UCLA to just four hits over his eight innings of work while striking out eight. The right-hander retired the first 11 batters he faced.

Ambriz, who earned no decision, pitched a scoreless seven innings, allowing just five hits and striking out seven. He left with the 1-0 lead in favor of left-hander Brian Schroeder in the eighth.

Schroeder surrendered the game-tying hit to Oregon State's Andy Jenkins in the top of the eighth before the Beavers pushed across two more in the ninth.

Jenkins finished 3-for-3 and leadoff hitter Jacoby Ellsbury was 4-for-5 for OSU.

Oregon State (34-8, 12-4 Pac-10) pulled ahead in the ninth when, with one out, Ellsbury singled home Mike Lissman from second. Lissman had led off with an infield single, one of five for the Beavers in the contest. Chris Kunda later scored the third Beaver run when Adam Simon walked Jenkins with the bases loaded after relieving Schroeder.

Kevin Gunderson retired the Bruins in order in the bottom of the ninth to record his tenth save of the year.

Schroeder (3-6) suffered the loss, allowing the three runs (two earned) on four hits over 1.2 innings.

Ambriz added two hits at the plate for UCLA.

Right fielder Chris Jensen extended his hitting streak to 13 games with his single in the fourth inning.
