Bauer (6'2" 185 lbs. Hart High School, Valencia, CA) strikes out fifteen Beavers in a four-hit complete game loss to Oregon State. Despite his performance, Bauer would be out-dueled by Oregon State red shirt junior LHP Josh Osich, who would throw a no-hitter against the Bruins.
Pitching dominated the two-hour, nine minute game, with Bauer and Osich allowing a combined seven base runners on four hits and three walks, while striking out twenty eight.
Bauer's complete game would be his fourth in a row, and he'd move closer (399 K's) to USC's Seth Etherton (420 K's,1995-98) for third place on the PAC-10 career strikeouts list (behind Washington's Tim Lincecum 491; 2004-06 and USC's Rik Currier 449; 1998-01).
