CORVALLIS — Ryan Kellogg threw a no-hitter as the 20th-ranked Arizona State baseball team defeated No. 3 Oregon State 4-0 on Saturday in front of 2,515 at Goss Stadium.
Kellogg struck out three in the no-hitter, the first against the Beavers since March 27, 1994 when Lewis & Clark State defeated OSU, 1-0.
Kellogg's perfect game was broken up with one out in the seventh inning when shortstop Drew Stankiewicz made an error that allowed the second batter of the frame to reach first. A dropped fly ball by right fielder Trever Allen in the eighth inning put Jake Rodriguez on base, but neither made it past first.
"I knew (our defenders) were behind me the whole game," Kellogg said. "I only had two strikeouts and they came in the last inning, so they made all the other plays for me."
Kellogg improved to 5-0 this season.
Jake Peevyhouse produced all the offense ASU needed when he hit a solo home run off OSU starter Andrew Moore in the fifth. Moore took the loss and dropped to 5-1 after allowing four hits and two runs in 52/3 innings.
ASU scored solo runs in the fifth, six, eighth and ninth innings.
Oregon State and Arizona State close out the series today at 12:05 p.m.
NO. 13 OREGON 5, ARIZONA 1 — At Eugene, Ryon Healy hit a three-run home run and four Oregon pitchers combined to hold Arizona to just one run for the second straight day as the Ducks won at PK Park.
Healy broke open a tight game with a three-run home run over the left field wall in the eighth inning that scored Brett Thomas and Aaron Payne.
Starter Tommy Thorpe (3-2) and three relievers limited the Wildcats (15-10, 0-5 Pac-12) to just one run on six hits. Thorpe gave up all six hits in 6.2 innings while allowing Arizona's only run.
Tyler Baumgartner led the Oregon offense, going 2-for-3.
NCAA CHAMPIONSHIPS — At Des Moines, Iowa, Oregon State did not have any wrestlers competing in championship matches inside Wells Fargo Arena, but there was still cause for celebration as the Beavers held onto eighth place at the NCAA Championships, their best finish since 1996.
OSU had tallied 48.5 total points at the end of competition, which put the squad three full points ahead of Illinois and five in front of Virginia Tech, who finished ninth and 10th respectively. As a team OSU went 20-13 during the three-day competition in 2013 and placed three wrestlers within the top five.
For the second straight season, head coach Jim Zalesky's squad produced three All-Americans and had one wrestler finish as high as fourth.
Sophomore Taylor Meeks (197) captured fourth place with a 4-2 record at the championships. He was 36-7 on the year. Junior Scott Sakaguchi (149 pounds) finished in fifth with a 5-2 record and junior RJ Pena (157) took fifth after going 6-2.
