Oregon State Baseball closes unfinished business with the 2018 College World Series Championship



OMAHA, Neb – You'll be remembered as one of the most persistent teams ever to appear in Omaha. A group of survivors from Oregon State who hit a match ball six times at the College World Series and never blinked. Not even if another blow ended her forever.

You will be remembered as the team with a single mission created by the pain of 2017 – Championship or Bust.

They will be remembered for the freshman

Unsinkable Oregon State finally reached their goal on Thursday night, beating Arkansas 5-0, and a title that would forever be a haven for teams in an Omaha hole can stay

"It was a long time, it was tough," said Adley Rutschman, the catcher with a record of 17 CWS hits, 13 RBIs and the Most Outstanding Player Award. "You watch it and you do not really understand until you play here, how really special and how hard it is, it's easy to see, and it's hard to be out here."

The beaver are national champions. , , although he had lost the tournament opening game 12 days earlier and was not cornered five hours after the start of the College World Series. Six elimination games that they faced in 11 days, six won.

"I think we played pretty well with our backs against the wall," said Kevin Abel , the pitcher that would make anything possible with historical dominance. "We did not want to be, but we did it."

They are champions. , , even after falling over a cliff on Wednesday night, until her last strike against a Razorbacks team that had been 44-0 that season when she led after eight innings. Of the previous 128 CWS teams, which were in the ninth inning, had lost 126. But they did not do it.

They are champions. , , because nothing else would do after being sent home from here in early June. So focused were their eyes on a price and just a price that they refused the obligatory dogpile celebration after the super regional or regional. "We thought one would be good enough for us at the end of the year," said Rutschman.

"A salty taste left us in the mouth last year, and probably every single person on the team remembers it," said Trevor Larnach. "Since then, we've started breaking 'finish' (the huddle) to finish the job and we're certainly done."

They're champions. , , even with a star rotation that battled almost every minute, unless the pitcher was named Kevin Abel. Take away his two gems against Mississippi State and Arkansas, and the starters gave up 18 earned runs in 19 innings in Omaha. And yet that did not stop her. A .327 team batting average and CWS record helped 93 hits. Rutschman led a year after he went 1-by-15 here.
