In a tremendous pitcher's duel, Oregon State beat Michigan, 1-0. Michigan's Zach Putnam and OSU starter Jorge Reyes were nothing short of spectacular. Reyes, with some help from the Beavers' bullpen, limited Michigan to just four hits. Putnam allowed one only hit, a two-out RBI single from Joey Wong in the ninth inning. Wong's hit proved to be the game winner.
Putnam worked 8.2 innings striking out eight and walking three before yielding to Michael Powers. Powers set down the lone batter he faced in the ninth. OSU's Reyes went seven innings giving up three of Michigan's hits and walking no one. Joe Paterson worked 1.1 innings giving up one hit. Eddie Kunz came in to get the last two hitters.
It was simply a masterfully pitched ballgame on both sides. With a combined five hits, there isn't much offense to talk about.
The two sides meet again tomorrow. The time has not yet been determined. It will either be 4:00 p.m. or 7:00 p.m. EST.
