No. 14 Oregon St. Squeaks By, 7-6

Steve Parker hit a pair of doubles Monday at Oregon State to extend his hitting streak to eight games.

CORVALLIS -- No. 14 Oregon State held on for a 7-6 victory Monday night over resurgent BYU to remain undefeated at home.

It looked like the Beavers, 21-7, would use a five-run second or a two-run fourth inning to blow BYU out of the game as they took leads of 5-1 and 7-3. But the Cougars, now 20-14, battled back after taking the initial 1-0 lead.

Cougar Steve Parker led off the second inning with a double to left field, having been at bat the previous inning when Sean McNaughton was thrown out at second. Parker advanced to third on Brandon Relf’s sac bunt and scored on Michael Bowen’s single to right field.

In the fourth, BYU’s Kent Walton scored on a wild pitch after getting aboard with a single, advancing on to second on a walk by Parker and to third on a double steal. Parker also advanced on the double steal and wild pitch, then scored on a ground out by Bowen to make the score 5-3.

Bowen’s two-out double in the sixth to the gap in right-center brought in Parker and Relf, who had doubled and walked, respectively, to make the score 7-5 favoring OSU.

McNaughton hit a one-out solo homer in the seventh to pull BYU within one, 7-6, as Parker grounded into an inning-ending double play with two on.

The Cougar relievers Jared Miller, Brandon Michon and Kevin Sloan performed well, getting BYU out of clutch situations. One of those came in the seventh with two on as Michon wheeled and spun to second off the mound to catch a Beaver attempting to steal in an inning-ending play.

The two teams have a rematch Tuesday evening.
