The newly crowned College World Series champion, Oregon State, spent nearly two weeks on the wall after two weeks in Omaha following a defeat by North Carolina and the opening game of the Arkansas championship. After each loss, the Beavers' next defeat would have been their last and eliminated them from the College World Series.
Instead, Oregon State prevented the elimination by winning four consecutive games and six of seven won the title. Here's how the Beavers won each game and how close they got to the elimination.

Oregon State 14, Washington 5
This game will not go into the same story such as the Chicago Cubs 'victory over the Cleveland Indians in Game 7 of the 201
With two outs and the bases charged for OSU at the top of the sixth innings, the game was suspended for four hours and 31 minutes. When the game resumed, Tyler Malone took a walk that scored the Game Ban Run, then the Beavers scored nine runs in the seventh and eighth inning to get the game out of reach.
How they achieved the game win: Michael Gretler doubled the left field line in the top of the seventh, Nick Counting madrigal from the second base.
What could have gone wrong: Washington was in control of the game for the first four innings with a 3-0 lead. Before the weather delay Washington was eliminated with a 5: 4 lead from the sixth inning. Maybe the weather delay did not affect the game at all. Maybe it completely changed the course of the 2018 College World Series. We will never know.
Oregon State 11, North Carolina 6
After losing 8-6 against the Tar Heels in their opening match, the Beavers rebounded back with a knockout victory over North Carolina four days later. Oregon State seemed on the verge of quietly leaving Omaha after a 6-3 to 7-in inning before exploding with a pair of four run innings to end the game. The Beaver's first four clubs were 9-for-19 with four doubles, two homers and seven RBI.
How They Made the Game Win: Anderson went 3-2 into the lead with two outs in the top of the eighth innings with the charged bases, Adley Rutschman scored to cut off a four-run inning.
What Might Have Goed Wrong: For the second time in four days, Oregon State ace Luke Heimlich was chased out of the game before he finished the third inning and forced the beaver to drop four pitchers Use game and weight the bullpen of the team. Kyle Datres, North Carolina's first strike of the game, doubled to lead from the bottom of the first, but the tar heels were unable to beat him in. They left nine runners on the bottom in play.
Oregon State 12, Mississippi State 2
The Oregon State had to face the up and coming Mississippi State national team twice in a row to reach the College World Series second inning and Chase MSU starter Jacob Billingsley after just 1.1 innings. The beaver scored five goals ahead of Billingsley – as many as the Bulldogs recorded for the entire game.
How they achieved the game win: Nick Madrigal hit the left field on the ground (19459007 )
What could have gone wrong: This was as overwhelming as the beaver since the Corvallis Regional. Bryce Fehmel took just 3.2 innings, the game with OSU leads 5-2, but Brandon Eisert put the clamps on MSU offense, keeping the Dawgs to only one goal in the last 5.1 innings.
Oregon State 5, Mississippi State 2
The Oregon State ended its four game run by successive elimination games in a rather offensively challenged matchup. The beaver scored all their runs in the third inning as they recorded five of their eight hits. MSU collected only four hits during this time. Freshman Kevin Abel was out lights, going seven innings while allowing only three hits and one run.
How to win the game: Tyler Malone hits a run from three runs (19459007)  What could have gone wrong: Abel had completed only five launches throughout the season and made a start as a freshman, with a final on the line, could have come to the right. Instead, he was dominant – a common theme of the College World Series. The beaver scored all five runs in the third inning with two outs. If only one game in the chain of events that led to a monster inning for OSU was different, we may come from Mississippi State or Arkansas and celebrate the national championship.
Oregon State 5, Arkansas 3
Arkansas had control of a competitive one-run game and only needed one more to win the College World Series, as a game that As one of the most notorious mistakes in the history is going on in college baseball history occurred. We will take a closer look. The two starting pitchers for only 6.1 innings and nine pitchers were used in total. There were 19 hits in the game, but 16 were singles.
Each team's leadoff and five-hole hitlers were hitless, while their No. 2, 3 and 4 thugs were responsible for the bulk of the offensive production in the game. It was a game where a big game could turn the tables, and that's what Oregon State even earned for the championship series.
How to win the game: Trevor Larnach hoarded with two right-wing squares  What could have gone wrong: Following a 2: 3 deficit with two outs in the top ninth of the ninth inning, Grenier hit a Cadyn Grenier pop-up goal in Foul Territory along the first baseline behind Bag. Arkansas First Baseman Gates, second baseman Carson Shaddy and right fielder Cole made every effort to get the ball out for the final but it fell in the middle of the trio. With a new life on the plate, Grenier singled out, began a two-out, three-rally Oregon State could win 5-3 and force a Game 3. If this ball had been captured, Arkansas would have won College World  Oregon State 5, Arkansas 0
The Oregon State never came in Game 3 of the College World Series a 2-0 lead first inning and gradually added to his lead over the next eight innings. Abel was brilliant and threw a two-hit shutout while battling 10 battles. The most outstanding player in the College World Series Adley Rutschman continued to swing a hot bat, go 3-for-4 with 2 RBI and a run and brought his name to the record books with a record 17 hits in the CWS. 
How to Make the Game Win: Rutschman drove into the game, which proved to be the game run in the fourth at-bat at the bottom of the first innings.
What could have gone wrong: After the hot start of Oregon State in the first inning and Abel's incredible work on the hill (he pulled back the last 20 thugs he faced)), there were really no immediate danger that barely avoided the beavers. Arkansas had loaded the bases with a third inning after Abel had relinquished a double chassis, but he settled down and pulled back the next two battles.
Maybe Abel misses some of his spots and this inning is different, but Oregon State was never in serious danger of losing the game.
