The Beaves added one more run to take a 2-0 lead in the first inning. Stay tuned to Building the Dam for further updates.

UPDATE: Rutschman did more damage in the bottom of the third, with a single to left field scoring one more run, giving the Beavers a 3-0 lead. That hit means he’s broken the College World Series hit record.
