CORVALLIS, Ore. (AP) - Oregon State ace Ben Wetzler faces two misdemeanor charges for breaking the window of a Corvallis home, apparently thinking it was his own residence.

Corvallis police took Wetzler, whose legal last name is Holmes, into custody early Saturday morning. The left-hander pitched eight innings Friday night, allowing two earned runs and striking out eight in No. 2-ranked Oregon State's 4-2 victory over UCLA.

Corvallis police say Wetzler was intoxicated when he was booked into Benton County Jail on first-degree criminal trespass and second-degree criminal mischief, both misdemeanors. He is scheduled to appear in court on June 9.

Wetzler is 9-1 and leads Division I with a 0.94 ERA.
