Oregon State 7, WASHINGTON STATE 7
• Oregon State didn't lose in its three-game series at Pullman, Washington, but the Beavers didn't sweep, either.

The Beavers, who gave up five runs in the first inning, scored five in the top of the seventh to take a 7-6 lead.
The Cougars tied the game in the bottom of the seventh.
Trevor Larnach had a home run (his 14th of the season) and matched teammates Cadyn Grenier, Nick Madrigal and Adley Rutschman with two hits.
OSU starter Grant Gambrell didn't make it through the first inning.

WSU is 6-14-1, 14-25-1.
Stanford leads the conference at 17-4. The Cardinal beat Utah, 6-4, on Sunday.
