Wetzler, Oregon State eliminate UNLV with 6-1 win
CORVALLIS, Ore. (AP) — Ben Wetzler allowed one run and struck out 10 in a four-hitter as top national seed Oregon State stayed alive in the NCAA Corvallis regional with a 6-1 victory over UNLV on Sunday.
Scoring just 17 runs in their last nine games, the Oregon State (44-13) offense finally came to life in the sixth with five runs on five hits to take a 5-0 lead. Gabe Clark’s RBI single broke a 1-for-19 skid with runners in scoring position for the Beavers, and Kavin Keyes followed up with a two-run triple.
That was all the run support Wetzler (12-1) needed to finish off his dominant performance.
UNLV’s (36-25) lone run came in the bottom of the sixth on Patrick Armstrong’s RBI single. Rebels starter Kenny Oakley (4-8) gave up five runs and nine hits in 5 2/3 innings in the loss.
