When you score 7 runs in one inning, you usually win the game. That happened to Oregon State in the winners bracket final of the Corvallis Regional.
It all started in the second with a Tyler Graham single to shortstop. He stole second, and then Mitch Canham reached on a fielding error by the first baseman. That moved Graham to third. Lissman doubled, sending Graham home and Canham to third. Rowe walked, loading the bases, then Gipson walked, sending Canham home from third. Next, Darwin Barney singled up the middle scoring two, and then Kunda homered to left center, scoring himself and two others. The Beavers went down 1-2-3 from there.
There you have it, 7 runs.
Oregon State added two more runs in the fourth when Chris Kunda hit his second homerun of the night, scoring two runs.
Kansas got its first breath of life in the 5th, when Brock Simpson took Jonah Nickerson deep.
Both teams scored two runs in the eighth inning. OSU got theirs' on a Cole Gillespoe double. Kansas scored their two from a Ryne Price homerun and a John Allman single.
The Jayhawks will play Hawaii today for the right to play Oregon State in the finals. The Championship game will be played at 6 p.m. tonight. If Oregon State loses, a winner-take-all game will be Monday at 2 p.m.
Of Course, how could I forget the bracket:
