Beavers erupt for 16-0 win

PORTLAND — Joey Wong tied an Oregon State single-game record with five hits, five pitchers combined to allow two hits and the Beavers took advantage of six Portland errors in a 16-0 victory over the Pilots Tuesday at Joe Etzel Field.

Wong was a triple short of the cycle. He singled in the first and second innings, hit his second home run of the season in the fourth, singled in the fifth and doubled down the right-field line in the eighth. He had an RBI and two runs scored in six at-bats.

Wong has a six-game hitting streak, during which he's 10-for-26 with 10 runs, two home runs and three RBI.

The five hits tied the Oregon State single-game record that has been reached multiple times.

Daniel Robertson went 3-for-4 for the Beavers, scoring two runs. Ryan Ortiz drove in three runs on two hits, and John Wallace hit his second home run of the season, a three-run shot in the sixth that drove in three and gave Oregon State a 13-0 lead.

Chris Hopkins finished with two RBIs, while Brett Casey, a pinch hitter in the seventh, drove in two with a double to right.

Former area high school stars Logan Boyd of South Medford and Rob Folsom of North Medford each had one of the Beavers' 17 hits.

Oregon State scored at least two runs from the second through seventh innings and added one in the eighth.

OSU pitchers struck out 13 batters and walked one.

Tanner Robles made his first career start and went hitless for three innings. He walked one and struck out one for his first career win in his second career start.

Josh Keller was perfect over the next three innings, fanning five. Josh Osich, Brad Kidd and James Nygren then each pitched an inning.

Jason Ogata extended his hit streak to seven games with a double.
