Beavers Ready for UNC Rematch in Omaha

Oregon State baseball faces North Carolina once again in the College World Series.

Posted: Jun 20, 2018 2:37 PM

Eugene, Ore. -- After taking a surprising loss on the chin in the opening round of the College World Series, the Oregon State Beavers came roaring back in the elimination game to beat the University of Washington, 14-5. It's been a stormy week in Omaha, Nebraska, leading to a multitude of delayed games, which played into the hands of the Beavers against the Huskies. A storm rolled in through TD Ameritrade Park, and so too did OSU. 

What comes next is a rematch with North Carolina, who took down Oregon State in the first game of the tournament. The no. 3 seeded Beavers lost to the Tar Heels 8-6 in what was the worst statistical performance of Luke Heimlich, the Pac-12 Pitcher of the Year's season. He only went three innings before being pulled by Coach Nate Yeskie. But things have changed since that hot and windy opener in Nebraska. UNC lost to Mississippi State, arguably the hottest team in the tournament right now, getting thumped 12-2. The Beavers meanwhile posted one of their better offensive performances of the season, up their with their double-digit blowout win over LSU in the NCAA Regional. 

Storm delays have once again pushed games back in Omaha Wednesday afternoon. The first game of the day sees the Arkansas Razorbacks face the Texas Tech Red Raiders before Oregon State and North Carolina meet yet again. No starting pitcher has been named yet for the Beavers, but Kevin Abel, Bryce Fehmel and Jake Mulholland all saw action against Washington. Heimlich currently has the freshest arm.
