OMAHA—Oregon State claimed victory straight from the jaws of defeat Wednesday night in Omaha, as three runs with two outs in the ninth inning sunk Arkansas and forced a decisive game three of the College World Series.

Cadyn Grenier and Trevor Larnach both played the role of hero, as Grenier’s single tied the game at three and Larnach’s home run solidified a 5-3 win for Oregon State.

The Beavers entered the final frame down 3-2, but opened the inning with a walk from Zak Taylor, who was then sacrificed over by Andy Armstrong.

With two outs and Taylor on third, Grenier’s heroics almost didn’t come to fruition, as he skied a ball down the right field line into foul territory that should have been caught. Three Arkansas players converged on the ball, but ultimately watched it drop between them, giving Grenier new life. Both he and Larnach took full advantage.

The win for Oregon State forces a winner-take-all game three. First pitch is set for 3:30 pm PT.

A win for the Beavers secures them their third CWS championship, an Arkansas win would be their first baseball title in school history.
