CORVALLIS — Ryan Kellogg threw a no-hitter Saturday as 20th-ranked Arizona State defeated No. 3 Oregon State, 4-0, Saturday in a Pac-12 baseball game in front of 2,515 at Goss Stadium.
Kellogg struck out three in his no-no, the first against the Beavers since March 27, 1994 when Lewis & Clark State defeated OSU, 1-0.
The Beavers managed two runners in the game, both via errors. Ryan Barnes reached on an error by shortstop Drew Stankiewicz and Jake Rodriguez reached first in the eighth on a dropped fly by rightfielder Trever Allen.
Kellogg improved to 5-0 this season. Jake Peevyhouse produced all the offense ASU needed when he hit a solo home run off OSU starter Andrew Moore in the fifth. Moore, a North Eugene product, took the loss and dropped to 5-1 after allowing four hits and two runs in 5 2/3 innings. Ex-Roseburg standout Brandon Jackson was among five OSU relievers, allowing one hit in one inning with one strikeout and one walk.
ASU scored solo runs in the fifth, six, eighth and ninth innings.
Oregon State and Arizona State close out the series at 12:05 p.m. today.

UO starter Tommy Thorpe (3-2) and three relievers limited the Wildcats (15-10, 0-5 Pac-12) to just one run on six hits. Thorpe gave up all six hits in 6 2/3 innings while allowing Arizona’s only run. Darrell Hunter came in to get the final out of the seventh inning after a two-out walk by Thorpe.
