Following a weather delay of about four and a half hours, Oregon State scored 10 unanswered runs to beat Washington 14-5 at the College World Series in Omaha, Neb., on Monday, keeping the Beavers’ hopes alive and eliminating the Huskies.
For the second day in a row, lightning and rain disrupted the early game at TD Ameritrade Park Omaha in the sixth inning, halting play from about 1:15 p.m. CT until 5:45 p.m. At the time, Washington led 5-4 and Oregon State had loaded the bases with two outs.
When play resumed, Beavers first baseman Tyler Malone drew an RBI walk to tie the game before Oregon State pulled ahead with a four-run seventh and five-run eighth, putting the game out of reach. Malone and designated hitter Kyle Nobach each finished with two hits, two runs and three RBIs.
