Freshman Kevin Abel threw a two-hitter and Oregon State closed out its third national championship by shutting out Arkansas, 5-0 in the deciding third game of the College World Series at TD Ameritrade Park Omaha.
Abel retired the last 20 Razorback batters, including Luke Bonfield looking at strike three on a 3-2 pitch to end the game. Abel became the first hurler to win four games in a single College World Series. Adley Rutschman set a College World Series record with 17 hits by going 3-4 with two RBIs in the clincher. The Beavers finish 55-12-1 while Arkansas ends at 48-21.
