SOLEDAD — Oregon State freshman pitcher Eric Segura was on a hot streak winning his last three starts, but this past week in his first PAC-12 league start didn’t go as well.

Entering the week, the Soledad High alum was 3-0 going into his first career start in the PAC-12. In his last start against CSUN, Segura matched his career high with seven strikeouts while only allowing two runs in five innings of work in the Beavers’ four-game sweep.

Against CSUN, he went five innings with seven strikeouts and gave up three hits.

So far this season, Oregon State is the highest ranked team in the PAC-12 at No. 3 in the nation. In their PAC-12 opener, they faced off against the Utah Utes, who had 11 wins and a two-game winning streak against Washington State.

After beating Utah in the first two games of the season, the Beavers went for their second-straight weekend sweep.

Segura got the run support he needed through the first three innings. In the fourth, it was his worst inning all season, as Utah scored six runs and chased him from the game. The Beavers ended up dropping their series finale to Utah.

Based on his his previous start, Segura will pitch again on Sunday against Washington.
