SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) — Cort MacDonald went 3 for 4, Malcolm Moore hit another home run in the Pac-12 Tournament, and eighth-seeded Stanford beat No. 2 seed Oregon State 2-1 on Wednesday to advance to the semifinals after winning Pool B.

Moore homered twice in an eight-run fourth inning on Tuesday to help Stanford snap a 10-game losing streak with a victory over Arizona State. He homered again in the fourth inning against Oregon State, driving it to deep right field to open the scoring.

Oregon State elected to walk Moore in the fifth and Ethan Hott made them pay with an RBI single down the left-field line.

Oregon State scored one in the ninth before Jabin Trosky flied out to end it.


Freshman Joey Volchko was great in his start for Stanford (22-32), striking out nine across six shutout innings. He left after an error allowed the leadoff man to reach in the seventh. Toran O’Harran picked up his seventh save of the season.

Oregon State (41-14) continues pool play against the Sun Devils on Thursday. The Beavers need a win and some help from Arizona to advance to the semifinals.
