Junior first baseman Brittany Hendrickson scored a run in the first game before giving the Vikings their biggest hit of the day, a solo home run in game two.
 
Oregon State (15-29 overall) jumped out to a three-run lead in the bottom of the first in game one. Hendrickson walked and then scored in the top of the third to pull the Vikings (7-34) to within a pair at 3-1.
 
The Beavers blew the game wide open in the bottom of the third with 10 runs on 10 hits off Portland State pitcher Melissa Masters and Raya Johnson to go up by the final score of 13-1. It was the most runs the Vikings had given up in a single inning this season.
 
Oregon State plated two runs in the bottom of second inning of game two to take a 2-0 lead. Kayla Norrie singled to right field to lead off the top of the third inning and was then lifted for pinch runner Mackenzie Bourbanis. Bourbanis moved to third afterShae Nelson reached on a throwing error by the Beavers' third baseman. Alicia Fine then drove Bourbanis in on a sacrifice fly to left to make the score 2-1.
 
After Oregon State plated two more runs in the bottom of the third, the Vikings added a run in the top of the fourth on another sacrifice fly, this time from Masters.
 
The Beavers plated single runs in the fourth and fifth innings to take a 6-2 lead through five complete. Hendrickson gave the Vikings another run in the top of the sixth on a solo home run to right center to bring the score to 6-3.
