Oregon State has made a storming comeback to get on top of Cal State Fullerton in the early game of the College World Series’ opening day. The Titans led 5-1 for much of the first half, but the Beavers chipped away and took a 6-5 lead in the bottom of the eighth.
This game has already featured some defensive fireworks by Oregon State, but Fullerton is most certainly not here to be outdone. Just ask the Titans’ centerfielder, Scott Hurst.
KJ Harrison slammed this ball into left center, an area of the park that plays very, very big. Coupled with the fact that the wind blows in from that very direction, this fly had a considerable amount of mustard behind it to make it to the wall. So it’s remarkable that Hurst, at full sprint, leaps from the middle of the warning track, slams into the wall while catching the ball, then returns to Earth to tell the story.
Oregon State won, 6-5, to send Fullerton to the losers bracket.
