Corvallis, OR -- Oregon State's baseball team totaled 17 hits for 18 runs against Washington State in game one of their series, including a grand-slam by catcher, Adley Rutschman in the bottom of the 7th inning.

After falling twice on the road against Nevada in extra innings, the Beavers responded with a strong showing in front of their home crowd.

Interim head coach, Pat Bailey said, "We had a meeting yesterday before we started practicing, there's nothing you can do about it to change those games. They're over with, there's nothing you can do to change the fact we lost two games in extra innings. So you just got to go on and Pac-12 games are critical for us at this point.

The projected first round draft pick, Rutschman stole the show with his grand-slam, but OSU saw a number of players step up to the plate and record hits to keep the momentum on their side. The Beavs scored a total of 9 runs in the 7th, which lasted about 40 minutes long. Infielder, Joe Casey was (3-4) at bat, Rutschman was (2-3), infielder, Jake Harvey was (2-3), outfielder, Kyler McMahan was (3-5) and infielder, Andy Armstrong was (3-5).

"Hitting is definitely hard," Armstrong said. "I think this just gave us as a team a lot more confidence you know, carrying into the future. So like I said earlier some guys started getting hot and that's definitely going to carry over into some other games in the future."

Game two gets underway at 1:35 p.m. Saturday afternoon, in Goss Stadium.
