Razorbacks Exploded In Comeback Win

The Beavers took a one-run lead in the bottom of the second when Trevor Larnach scored on a Michael Gretler single.

Blaine Knight also earned the victory on the mound for Arkansas with six innings with six strikeouts and allowed just the one run.

Starter Luke Heimlich pitched 4.1 innings for the Beavers with five strikeouts and all four runs were scored while he was on the mound.

Tuesday night’s game, which was rescheduled due to weather problems on Monday, was the fourth all-time meeting between Oregon State and Arkansas, with the Razorbacks now leading the head-to-head series 3-1.

Oregon State, which is playing in its third College World Series championship game in program history, following two previous appearances in 2006 and 2007, must win Game 2 to extend its run at this year’s NCAA tournament.

The Beavers won the national title in its prior visits to the CWS championship game.
