Billy King sends Oregon State to walk-off win against No. 8 Southern Cal

  In just two at bats, Billy King has driven in three runs against Southern Cal in this series.

CORVALLIS, Ore. -- Billy King’s single with one down in the ninth inning drove in Dane Lund to send Oregon State to a 3-2 win against No. 8 Southern California on Saturday afternoon at Goss Stadium at Coleman Field.

Lund walked to open the inning, and moved to second on a sacrifice bunt by Jeff Hendrix. KJ Harrison was walked intentionally, which set up King, who was pinch hitting for Joe Gillette. On his seventh pitch against reliever Kyle Davis, King laced a grounder through the right side of the infield and Lund was able to beat the throw from right fielder AJ Ramirez.

King has two at bats in the series against the Trojans and three RBI. He drove in two on a ground-rule double in the eighth on Friday.

On Saturday, the Beavers managed five hits against three USC pitchers but made them count. Lund, who went 3-for-3 to tie his season-best, tripled in the first and scored on a safety squeeze from Hendrix.

Hendrix drove in his second run of the game in the third when he hit a sharp single to left, enabling Caleb Hamilton to score.

Both starting pitchers finished with quality starts but neither came away with a win to show for their efforts. Drew Rasmussen struck out seven, walked three and allowed seven hits and two runs in eight innings. USC’s two-run sixth inning was his lone blemish on the day.

Rasmussen’s counterpart, Kyle Twomey, also allowed two runs. He scattered four hits with four strikeouts and a walk in seven innings.

USC’s Marc Huberman, who came on in relief in the eighth, was tagged with the loss to drop to 6-2 on the year. The lefty did not allow a hit but was touched for a run and two walks in 1.1 innings.

The win went to OSU freshman Sam Tweedt, who picked up his team-leading fifth victory of the season. He worked a scoreless ninth.
