CORVALLIS, Ore. (AP) – Danny Hayes hit a two-run home run and Oregon State advanced to the College World Series with a 4-3 victory over Kansas State on Monday night in the finale of the Corvallis super regional.

Ben Wetzler (9-1) struck out five, walked five and allowed three earned runs over 7 2-3 innings, and opening-game starter Matt Boyd held off the Wildcats (45-19) to earn his first save of the season and send the Beavers to Omaha for the first time since 2007, when Oregon State won its second consecutive national title.

Oregon State (50-11) jumped ahead in the second inning when Hayes followed a leadoff walk by Dylan Davis with a two-run home run to right-center field.

The Beavers took a 3-0 lead in the fourth when Kavin Kayes knocked an RBI double off the right-center field fence. That was it for Kansas State starter Jake Matthys (9-2).
