Beavers Advance To Fifth CWS
Written by Hank Hager    Monday, 10 June 2013 22:16   

CORVALLIS, Ore. –The Beavers are headed back to Omaha.

Danny Hayes hit a two-run home run in the second inning and Ben Wetzler limited Kansas State to three runs over 7 2/3 innings as the Beavers won the Corvallis Super Regional with a 4-3 victory Monday night at Goss Stadium.

The win sends Oregon State to its fifth-ever visit to the College World Series in Omaha, and the fourth trip in the last nine years – all under head coach Pat Casey. The Beavers (50-11 overall) will open the World Series Saturday at 12 p.m. PT (2 p.m. in Omaha) against Mississippi State from the Southeastern Conference.

“I’m very proud of what these men have accomplished,” Casey said. “They were down early in the series but battled and now have a chance to play for their goal. We are very ready to head to Omaha and look forward to seeing a great amount of Beaver fans there to cheer us on.”

 

Hayes drove in Davis with a 2-2 home run to center in the second off Kansas State (45-19) starter Jake Matthys. It was Hayes’ sixth home run of the season and pushed the Beavers to an early lead for the third consecutive game.

 

Wetzler, meanwhile, used that early lead to his advantage, holding the Wildcats to three runs and nine hits in 7 2/3 innings. He struck out  five and walked five in the win.

 

Wetzler improved to 9-1 this season.

 

Wetzler left with the game’s tying run on second. Matt Boyd came on in relief and allowed a single by RJ Santigate but Blake DeBord, who was at second, tried the score and was gunned down at the plate on a throw by Michael Conforto and a tag by Jake Rodriguez, preserving the lead.

 

Boyd picked up the save, his first of the season and eighth of his career.

 

Oregon State added to the lead in the fourth when Kavin Keyes doubled off the right center wall, and tacked on another run in the fifth when Andy Peterson reached on an error by shortstop Austin Fisher.

 

Matthys allowed three hits and four runs in 4 1/3 innings of work. He started his first game of the season and threw a career-high 75 pitches. He took the loss and dropped to 9-2 this season.

 

Saturday’s College World Series opener is slated to air live on ESPN2 and the game can also be found online on ESPN3.com. The Beaver Sports Radio Network will also carry the game with the following stations airing it: KEJO 1240-AM in Corvallis/Albany, FOX Sports Radio Portland (620-AM), KICE 940-AM (Bend), KSKR 1490-AM in Roseburg, KAKT 104.7-FM (Grants Pass, Medford), KLAD 960-AM (Klamath Falls), KBZY 1490-AM (Salem) and KKNX 840-AM (Eugene).

 

Beaver Nation Online (osubeavers.com) will also have live audio of the game.
