USC beats No. 1 OSU on Cris Perez's 10th-inning single

  Cris Perez's two-run single off the wall broke a 5-5 tie in the top of the 10th.

Southern California's bats awoke in its second game of its weekend series with No. 1 Oregon State, as the Trojans downed the Beavers 7-5 in 10 innings.

USC catcher Cris Perez knocked home the game-winning runs in the top of the extra frame, hitting a deep two-run single off the left-field wall to break the deadlock and give reliever Austin Manning some cushion as he headed back to the mound for the bottom half of the inning.

Perez finished 2-for-3 on the day with those two RBIs. The Trojans tallied 11 hits as a team, one night after being one-hit by the Beavers and their ace Luke Heimlich in a 3-1 defeat.

Manning clinched the victory in the bottom of the 10th, coercing a groundball double play to finish the game. He went two innings out of the bullpen and allowed one hit en route to earning the win. For Oregon State, top reliever Jake Mulholland (1.79 ERA) was handed the first loss of his collegiate career.

USC trailed 5-4 heading into the top of the eighth before Dillon Paulson hit into a fielder's choice that scored the tying run off Mulholland.

With the win, the Trojans tied the series at a game apiece. Sunday's rubber game will start at 1:05 p.m. ET in Corvallis, Oregon.
