The Dawgs entered the ninth inning down by two runs after keeping pace with OSU for most of the game. Pinch hitter Kevin Ruiz singled, bringing the tying run to the plate with none out. Meanwhile, Beavers pitcher Tony Bryant suffered an injury from Ruiz' shot, which had bounced off his arm. Oregon State coaches and players gathered at the mound as he tested his arm, a lengthy delay during which Goss Stadium's freaking lights also went out. Get it together, Corvallis.
After a billion years, Levi Hyams popped out to right field. Bryant definitely looked to be having control issues, perhaps from his dinged arm, putting a few in the dirt as he walked Curt Powell. Kyle Farmer also flied out, and not deep enough for runners to advance. Cleanup hitter Zach Cone popped up, and that was that.
OSU will advance to the Nashville Super Regional, where the Vanderbilt Commodores await. That's set to begin June 10.
