Beavers Sweep Husker Classic
Michael Conforto drove in three runs and former Siuslaw standout Jake Thompson tossed seven scoreless innings in his college debut to pace the 2nd ranked Oregon State Beaver Baseball team to a 7-0 win over Pacific yesterday in Tempe, Arizona. The win left the Beavers with a 4-and-oh record coming off the opening weekend at the Husker Classic.
Thompson’s debut saw the right-hander strike out three while allowing three hits and two walks. The freshman retired ten of his last 11 batters faced after allowing a single and a walk to open the fourth inning. He got the win and is one-and-oh.
