TUCSON, Ariz. -- Jace Fry carried a no-hitter into the eighth inning and Michael Conforto went 3-for-5 with three runs batted in to the lead the seventh-ranked Oregon State baseball team to an 11-0 series-clinching victory over Arizona on Sunday afternoon at Hi Corbett Field. A left-hander, Fry (W, 5-1) was brilliant on the mound in seven-plus inning of work. His no-hit bid was broken up to lead off the eighth inning when Arizona's Willie Calhoun singled up the middle. Fry left after Calhoun's single, capping an afternoon in which he kept the Pac-12's top hitting team off balance while registering five strikeouts.  He retired the first eight Wildcats that came to the plate and faced just one over the minimum through six innings. Oregon State (21-6, 6-3 Pac-12) plated four first-inning runs, which proved to be more than enough in the shutout. Conforto's single with two runners on drove in the game's first run, and Kavin Keyes and Michael Howard later added their own RBI singles. Caleb Hamilton's sacrifice fly drove in the fourth run of the initial frame, in which all nine Beavers' starters came to the plate. Starter Austin Schnabel recorded just one out for the Wildcats before reliever Cody Moffett came on in relief. Schnabel (L, 0-4) took the loss as he allowed four runs on four hits with a walk. Moffett cooled the Beavers' bats with one run allowed over 4 1/3 strong innings, but he never received any run support. The left-hander struck out three and scattered four hits. Oregon State broke open the game with four more runs in the sixth inning against right-hander Morgan Earman, who retired the first two batters with relative ease. But a two-out walk to Jimmy Hendrix was followed by Andy Peterson's single. Conforto drove in another run with a sharp singled, and Keyes later tripled home two runs for the 9-0 advantage. For good measure, the Beavers pushed across single runs in the seventh and eighth innings to set the score at its final, 11-0. Arizona (12-18, 2-7 Pac-12) loaded the bases in the eighth, but reliever Scott Schultz escaped the jam to preserve the shutout. Schultz, who tossed the final two innings, allowed three hits.
