Oregon State uses big seventh inning to beat Portland

PORTLAND — Jordan Lennerton doubled home three runs in an eight-run seventh inning as ninth-ranked Oregon State routed Portland 10-1 in nonconference baseball Tuesday at Joe Etzel Field.

Jason Ogata was 3-for-5 with a double and drove in three runs for OSU (32-8 overall).

The Beavers and Pilots (17-22) were locked in a 2-1 pitchers' duel through six innings. OSU then erupted for eight runs on six hits in the seventh, including doubles by Lennerton and Mitch Canham, a two-run single and a run-scoring single by Ogata, and a run-scoring single by Darwin Barney.

Daniel Turpen picked up the win, improving his record to 7-1 this season as he pitched five innings and allowed one run on four hits and four walks while striking out two. Relievers Greg Keim, Anton Maxwell and Alex Sogard finished off the five-hitter for OSU, which has limited opponents to three or fewer runs in 24 of 40 games this season.

OSU visits Stanford this weekend for a three-game Pacific-10 Conference series, beginning Friday.
