Razorbacks Make Silk Purse Out of Beaver Tail; Ems on Four Game Slide

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.
