Razorbacks Make Silk Purse Out of Beaver Tail
The Oregon State Beavers took an early 1-0 lead in the second inning yesterday at the college World Series in Omaha, but a 4 run fifth inning for the Razorbacks would be enough to silence the Beavers. Luke Heimlich started the day for the Beavers and threw 86 pitches in 4 and a third innings. Heimlich is credited with the 4 runs. It was another difficult outing for Heimlich who has lacked the production that got him through a 16 win season. In relief Christian Chamberlain finished the game striking out 11 and faced 16 batters allowing only 2 hits, but the Beavers bats couldn’t find the fire that has followed them throughout the series. Game two will be this afternoon on KCFM with a 3:30 pregame and a 4:05 start.
Ems on Four Game Slide
The Eugene Emeralds are on a four game slide as they traveled to Salem last night to meet the Salem-Keiser Volcanoes. The Ems had an early 3-1 lead until the Volcanoes erupted in the fourth with 7 runs. The Ems mounted a rally in the 8th but only managed 2 runs before being shut down. Final score was 10-5 Volcanoes. Play resumes this evening for game two in Salem at 6:30pm.
