Boyd, Beavers Survive


Aaron Slegers was brilliant for Indiana. Matt Boyd (left) was slightly better than brilliant for Oregon State.

Boyd turned in a sensational performance Wednesday night, tossing a four-hit shutout with 11 strikeouts as the Beavers edged the Hoosiers 1-0 in an elimination game at the College World Series at TD Ameritrade Park. Oregon State (52-12) moves on to meet Mississippi State on Friday and needs two wins against the Bulldogs to advance to the CWS Championship Series. Indiana (49-16) was shut out for the first time this season, putting an end to a magical season.

Boyd (11-4), a former reliever who passed on signing a professional contract last year after his junior season, devastated the Hoosiers by staying ahead most of the night and keeping them off balance with his curve ball - no Indiana runners advanced past second base, and Boyd picked off two. The Hoosiers' biggest threat came in the bottom of the fifth when they put runners on first and second with one out, but Boyd escaped with a fly out to right field and a pop out on the infield.

Slegers (9-2) matched Boyd pitch for pitch, allowing seven hits and one run in the tough-luck loss.

Kavin Keyes (2 for 4) led off the fourth with a single and moved to third on a Ryan Barnes double - Barnes (2 for 4) showed bunt but slashed instead, ripping the ball down the left-field line. Jake Rodriguez then lofted a sacrifice fly down the right-field line for the game's only run.
