CORVALLIS -- Consecutive multiple run innings gave No. 14 Oregon State the needed cushion Tuesday to secure a second straight victory over BYU, 8-4.

The Beavers, 22-7, who won back-to-back NCAA titles in 2006 and 2007, scored pairs of runs in the second and fourth innings and three in the third. BYU, now 20-15, took the initial lead for the second day in a row, but again came up on the losing end.

BYU’s Steve Parker led off with a home run to deep right field in the second inning, extending his hitting streak to nine straight games.

Teammate Kent Walton followed suit and knocked a lead-off homer in the eighth to close the gap to 8-2. Parker followed with a double in the eighth. Parker advanced to third on a double play and scored along with Kasey Ko on Chad Nacapoy’s double to left field, closing the gap 8-4.

The Cougars threatened in the ninth with the bases loaded, then were stopped by a game-ending double play.

The Cougars now return to Mountain West Conference action on Thursday when they host Utah at 6 p.m., in a game broadcast live over KSRR Radio (1400 AM).
