CORVALLIS, Ore. - The No. 11 UCLA baseball team dropped a 3-0 decision to Oregon State in a Pac-12 contest before 2,352 at Goss Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

OSU left-hander Jace Fry (4-2) limited the Bruins (26-9, 11-6 Pac-12) to six hits in a complete game effort, recording six strikeouts and two walks. Fry's strong start helped Oregon State even the three-game series against UCLA, 1-1.

Oregon State (25-12, 7-7) received a pair of three-hit performances from Tyler Smith (3-for-4) and Ryan Dunn (3-for-3), who had a solo home run and two RBI in the Beavers' victory.

UCLA right-hander Nick Vander Tuig (4-3) absorbed the loss, surrendering three runs and eight hits in 5.1 innings. Vander Tuig registered four strikeouts and issued one walk.

Six Bruins each recorded one hit, as Beau Amaral pushed his career-leading hitting streak to 21 games. Pat Valaika went 1-for-3 with one double, UCLA's only extra-base hit.

The Beavers claimed a 2-0 lead in the bottom of the third. With runners at first and second base, Dunn lined a run-scoring double to right-center field, scoring Michael Comforto. A groundout by Dylan Davis sent home Ryan Gorton.

The Beavers made a critical play on defense to end the top of the sixth inning and prevent UCLA from scoring with two outs. With Beau Amaral aboard second base, Keefer grounded a base hit up the middle. John Tommasini stopped the ball on a diving attempt in front of the grass behind second base and threw out Amaral at the plate.

Oregon State pushed its advantage to 3-0 in the bottom of the sixth with Dunn's solo home run to left field. Relief pitchers Grant Watson and Zack Ortiz helped UCLA escape a jam, as Oregon State put two runners in scoring position before flying out to end the inning.

The Bruins won the series opener on Friday night, 4-0.
