PULLMAN, Wash. – Oregon State and Washington State played to a 7-7 Sunday in the three-game series finale at Bailey-Brayton Field.
Troy Claunch walked to lead off the 10th but a lightning strike, combined with Oregon State’s travel curfew, ended the game with the deadlocked score.
Oregon State scored five in the seventh to overcome a 6-2 Washington State lead. But WSU scored one in the bottom half of the frame to tie the game. Neither team managed a run through the last two innings.

Oregon State starter Grant Gambrell was chased after 2/3 of an inning. He allowed five hits and five runs – four earned. He did not figure in the decision after Jones’ fielder’s choice tied the game in the seventh.
