OSU stays alive in CWS after 4.5 hour lightning delay

PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) -- At a moment of immense anticipation, with two outs and the bases loaded in a one-run game between Washington and Oregon State, lightning struck behind home plate at the College World Series. Anticipation suspended, tension rose and time on the diamond stopped.

The wait, however, proved to be worth it for the Beavers. 

After a 271-minute lightning delay, OSU infielder Tyler Malone drew a walk, tying the game at five and setting up an offensive onslaught through the next four innings. The Beavers would tack on nine more runs en route to a 14-5 victory.

The win moved the Beavers on; the loss sent the Huskies home. 

Ultimately, OSU put together an impressive offensive showing, nearly hitting double digits on the scoreboard. Maybe more impressive, however is how clutch their offensive production was against the Huskies.

The team's offense also channeled its championship past.

Next, OSU will face the loser between North Carolina -- who they lost to in game one 8-6 -- and Mississippi State. Those two teams will play on Tuesday.

The Beavers will play next on Wednesday.
