Pilots baseball adds two to win column
Portland 16-8, SEATTLE 14-4
The Pilots finished off one game and then won again, in extra innings, to make it a doubly positive trip to Bellevue, Washington.
Portland improved to 19-11, while the Redhawks fell to 6-21.
To begin the day, and to complete a game halted at UP last Wednesday in the fifth inning because of rain, the Pilots rallied for the 16-14 victory.
The game resumed Tuesday with Portland trailing 13-12, and Seattle scored in the top of the seventh to go up 14-12.
But the Pilots scored four times in the bottom of the seventh. Matt Kelly had an RBI double, Cody Hawken followed with a two-run triple, and Nick Merone added an RBI single with his first career hit.
Connor Knutson tossed a scoreless ninth to earn his eighth save this season.
Cameron Richman (1-1), who went three relief innings Tuesday, got the win.
Hawken had five RBIs in the game.
The following game went to the 10th inning, tied 4-4 before Tracye Tammaro of UP came up with a go-ahead double and Dutton Elske provided an exclamation point with a three-run home run.
Daniel Lopez also was key in that game for Portland, going 3 for 3 with two RBIs.
Seattle led 3-0, chasing freshman starter Cole Wilkinson in the second inning. Portland rallied to lead 4-3, but the Redhawks scored in the ninth off closer Knutson (2-1), who wound up with the win.
San Diego State 4, OREGON STATE 3
At Corvallis, San Diego State opened a two-game, two-day set with a win, holding the Beavers scoreless over the final seven innings before a crowd of 3,268.

San Diego State took a 2-0 lead with single runs in the first two innings against Sam Tweedt (1-2), who worked 4 2/3 innings.
Oregon State scored three times in the second on RBI hits by Jake Harvey (double), Kyler McMahan and Beau Philip.
Philip had the eighth and final Beavers hit, a double with two out in the ninth, but Greg Fuchs hit into a ground out to first to end the game and leave OSU with eight total runners left on base.
Philip was 2 for 5, and Adley Rutschman went 2 for 3 with a double and walk.
