TUCSON, Ariz. -- Trent Gilbert led a 17-hit attack, and Cody Hamlin pitched into the ninth inning to lead the Arizona baseball team to an 11-2 upset of seventh-ranked Oregon State on Saturday at Hi Corbett Field. Arizona (12-17, 2-6) evened the Pac-12 series with the Beavers as it claimed an early lead and never looked back, providing plenty of run support for Hamlin, who turned away the Beavers on several occasions and narrowly missed on his bid for a complete game. Hamlin (4-2) allowed just two runs and racked up a career-high eight strikeouts without a walk in 8.2 innings pitched. He picked up a pair of quick outs in the ninth, but consecutive doubles pushed across the final run and prompted the Wildcats to make their only pitching change of the game. Bobby Dalbec finished off the impressive victory to snap a streak of six-consecutive victories in Tucson for the Beavers. Gilbert ignited the offense with a two-run double in the first inning to drive in Joseph Maggi and Kevin Newman, who each collected one-out singles. It was the first of two extra base in the game for Gilbert, who finished 3-for-5 with three runs batted in and a pair of runs scored. The Wildcats added to their lead with a four-run third inning against Oregon State starter Andrew Moore. Newman, who was one three players with three hits in the lineup, singled and scored on Gilbert’s triple to the 405-foot sign in left-centerfield. Later in the inning, Dalbec, Riley Moore and Scott Kingery added two-out base hits to drive in runs, and the Wildcats were comfortably in front 6-0. That was plenty of support for Hamlin, who was in control most of the way despite allowing the Beavers to put a runner on base in all nine innings. However, he worked out of his biggest jam with minimal damage in the sixth inning. Oregon State (20-6, 5-3) loaded the bases with no outs in the sixth, but scored just once on Logan Ice’s sacrifice fly out. Otherwise Hamlin coaxed a soft fly out and struck out Andy Peterson to send Arizona to the dugout with a 6-1 lead. The Wildcats added a lone insurance run in the seventh and then plated four more runs to take a commanding 11-2 lead to the final inning. Moore (2-2) lasted just three innings and was charged with six runs on 10 hits and a walk. He struck out two before turning the game over to lefty-reliever Zack Reser. Reser quieted Arizona’s bats with 2.2 scoreless innings, but five additional relievers combined to give up five runs over 2.1 innings. Arizona’s lineup included six starters with multiple hit games, highlighted by the top four in the lineup. Kingery and Maggi each had two hits at the top of the order ahead of Newman and Gilbert, who each had three hits. Gibbons added a 3-for-4 game with two runs scored out of the No. 7 spot, and Moore collected two hits and drove a pair of runs batting in the No. 9 position. The win snapped an eight-game losing streak for the Wildcats, who had dropped six consecutive Pac-12 games.
