Box Score


Oregon State managed to subdue tenth-ranked California 1-0 to hand the Golden Bears their first shutout loss of 2013 in the final game of the series Sunday in Berkeley.

Against Beaver pitched Tina Andreana (6-5) in game one on Friday, the Bears racked up nine hits. That wasn’t the case Sunday as Cal produced just two hits – one from sophomore Breana Kostreba and another from freshman Khala Taylor – while seven batters struck out. Andreana walked six batters, but the Bears were unable to capitalize in several scoring situations and left eight runners on base, including a bases loaded situation at the bottom of the seventh.

Senior ace Jolene Henderson (29-8) allowed four hits in 6.2 innings, walking none and whiffing six. Freshman Nisa Ontiveros replaced her to get the last out at the top of the seventh.

The lone run on the board came at the top of the fourth inning, starting with a single from designated player Ashley Sanchez. A base hit from left fielder Lea Cavestany and a Golden Bear error sent Sanchez to third before she scored on a ground out by first baseman Natalie Hampton.

The loss is Cal’s third-straight one-run loss. Kostreba led the Bears in the series with a .571 batting average, and she and sophomore Cheyenne Cordes and junior Victoria Jones all tallied a homer to up the Golden Bear home run total to 47, the fifth-highest total in program history.

California returns to the road Friday to begin a series against No. 2 Arizona State at 7 p.m. The game will be televised live on ESPNU. Saturday and Sunday’s games will be televised on the Pac-12 Networks.
