  • EUGENE — Matt Krook will have better starts at PK Park in his Oregon baseball career. Still, his debut Saturday afternoon gave the home fans plenty to like from the heralded freshman pitcher.
    Settling down from a rough start, Krook faced the minimum over his final four innings, at one point striking out five straight during a no-decision in Oregon's 3-2 loss to Cal State Fullerton.
    The fifth-ranked Titans took advantage of some early wildness to touch Krook for two runs in the second inning, but from there he showed off the stuff that made him a first-round MLB draft pick last summer.
    No. 9 Oregon (8-2) rallied to tie the game with runs in the third and fourth innings, before Fullerton scored the decisive run in the ninth. The Ducks will try to avoid a sweep today at noon, a year after salvaging the final game of a three-game set at Fullerton last season.
    OREGON STATE 6-2, WRIGHT STATE 4-6 — At Corvallis, fourth-ranked Oregon State's four-game winning streak ended with a nonconference doubleheader split against Wright State at Goss Stadium.
    The Beavers (8-3) won the opener behind junior lefty Jace Fry. Wright State (3-7) took the nightcap by scoring once in the seventh inning and three more times in the eighth. It was the first-ever win for the Raiders against Oregon State and it ended their five-game losing streak.
    Oregon State stranded 10 runners, left the bases loaded twice and had just one hit in the final seven innings in game two. An RBI double by Gabe Clark and a run-scoring single by Andy Peterson gave the Beavers a 2-0 lead in the second inning but from that point on they were handcuffed by Wright State starter Robby Sexton and reliever Andrew Elliott.

    NEBRASKA TOPS BEAVERS — At Corvallis, No. 14 Oregon State gymnastics came up short in its bid to upset No. 7 Nebraska, 196.650-196.625. Arizona State was third in the three-way meet.
    Chelsea Tang led the Beavers by scoring 39.325 in the all-around.
    The Beavers (7-3) topped the 49-point plateau on three events, including a season-high 49.350 on the uneven bars, but it wasn't enough. Nebraska improved to 10-1.
