No. 2 Oregon State sweeps California on Jace Fry's complete game shutout

  Jace Fry pitched his third complete-game shutout of the season.

BERKELEY, Calif. -- To say Jace Fry was sharp in Sunday’s start against California would be an understatement.

Fry was dominating, holding California to just one hit in a complete-game shutout of the Golden Bears in the Beavers’ 5-0 win. The win gave No. 2 Oregon State a sweep of California, the team’s fourth in Pac-12 Conference play this season.

Fry’s lone hit allowed came in the third when Vince Bruno opened the frame with a single. He was, however, quickly erased as Fry forced the next batter, Robbie Tenerowicz, into a double play.

The outing marked Fry’s third complete-game shutout of the season and second in Pac-12 play after doing so against Utah.

He’s allowed just two hits in his last 17 innings of work after holding Oregon to one hit in eight innings last week. Fry had 11 strikeouts in the win over the Ducks; against Cal, he finished with six.

The lefty improved to 9-1 this season with the win, taking six of those victories against conference foes.

Michael Conforto led Oregon State’s offensive charge with a 3-for-3 effort, driving in a team-high three runs. Jeff Hendrix also tallied two hits for the Beavers, who finished with seven hits overall. OSU improved to 27-0 this season when recording more hits than its opponent.

Conforto got the Beavers on the board, and in a hurry. He lined a 1-0 offering from Cal starter Ryan Mason into the foul pole in right for his fifth home run of the season, a shot that put OSU up 2-0.

He and Dylan Davis added to the Beavers’ (34-8 overall, 17-4 Pac-12 Conference) lead in the third. Conforto doubled home a run, then scored himself as Davis poked a single to center to drive in two and push the Beavers’ advantage to 5-0.

California’s (19-24, 7-14) Mason was saddled with his first loss of the season after going eight innings in his sixth start of the season. The righty allowed seven hits and five runs while striking out one. He’s 4-1 on the year.

The sweep gave the Beavers their 10th straight win against the Golden Bears. It’s OSU’s longest over a conference foe since winning 10 consecutive over Washington from 1967-71.
