CORVALLIS, Ore. – The second game of the three-game series between fifth-ranked Washington and second-ranked Oregon State was billed as a pitching duel and it turned out that way.

Oregon State’s Logan Ice broke a scoreless deadlock in the ninth with a double off the right-field wall that scored Dylan Davis from second to give the Beavers a 1-0 win. Ice, from Puyallup’s Rogers High School, swung at the first pitch he saw from Huskies’ reliever Troy Rallings to lift his team to a one-game advantage in a tight Pac-12 race.

The Beavers (40-9, 21-5) assured themselves of ending the series against Washington (38-12, 20-6) on Sunday with no worse than a tie in the Pac-12 standings.

UW’s Tyler Davis (10-2) allowed the lone earned run on six hits. Both of his losses have been to Oregon State.
