OMAHA—Oregon State baseball has won its third NCAA baseball championship in program history after a 5-0 win over Arkansas in game three of the College World Series.

Freshman Kevin Abel delivered a complete game masterpiece and became the first pitcher in CWS history to go 4-0.

Adley Rutschman went 3-for-4 and set the record for hits in a single CWS.

The Beavers rode a wave of momentum that carried over from Wednesday’s win—a ninth inning rally that saw them erase a one-run deficit with three of their own.

The win for Oregon State caps off a College World Series that saw it go 5-0 in elimination games—a redemption tour a year after dropping two straight to LSU, just a win away from the CWS Finals. It’s the Beavers first national championship since winning back to back in 2006 and 2007.
