CORVALLIS, Ore. – The fifth-ranked Washington baseball team scored three times in the second inning against No. 2 Oregon State on Friday and made it stick in a 4-2 win at sold out Goss Stadium.

Washington (38-11-1, 20-5 Pac-12) snapped the Beavers’ 12-game winning streak and extended its own to nine games. The Huskies also drew even with the Beavers (39-9, 20-5) in the race for Pac-12 supremacy.

Washington starter Jared Fisher (6-3) only stumbled in the fourth inning when he gave up two runs. He allowed five hits in six innings.

In the second inning, UW scored its first run when Erik Forgione was hit by a pitch with the bases loaded. Austin Rei scored on a passed ball and Branden Berry scored on a ground out by Braden Bishop.

The Huskies picked up an unearned run in the eighth inning when pinch-runner Chris Baker scored on an error.

UW closer Troy Rallings worked a perfect ninth inning to pick up his ninth save in nine tries.

“I’m proud of our guys,” Huskies coach Lindsay Meggs said. “Anytime you can come in here, in front of a sellout crowd and hold them to two runs, execute offensively like we did and play great defense, it’s a great win.”

The Huskies and Beavers play game two of the series Saturday at 4:05 p.m. on the Pac-12 Networks. Tyler Davis (10-1, 1.77) starts for UW.

Note

• Oregon State coach Pat Casey suspended ace Ben Wetzler five games and ordered him to perform community service for a window-breaking incident in Corvallis. Casey said the suspension began last Saturday, making Wetzler available to pitch Sunday against Washington.
