Oregon State two sport athlete Hunter Jarmon has left the Beavers baseball program as it was first reported by Connor Letourneau of The Oregonian. Jarmon is a wide receiver on the football team and had originally planned on playing both sports in Corvallis.

But head coach Tim Esmay thought the Sun Devils (13-11, 3-4) could have easily put together a five- or six-run inning in the situation.
In the next frame, Arizona State added a run on a solo homer by Colby Woodmansee that appeared to get an extra boost over the left field wall when it bounced out of the glove of a leaping Ty Moore.
