Kansas State rallies for super regional victory

CORVALLIS, Ore. (AP) — Tanner Witt's two-run single in the 10th inning capped a four-run rally and Kansas State beat Oregon State 6-2 on Saturday in the opening game of the Corvallis super regional.

The Wildcats (45-17) had seven hits over the final two innings and sent nine batters to the plate in the 10th. They pulled ahead when Jared King led off the inning with a bloop double into shallow left-center and Jon Davis brought him home with an RBI single.

Two batters later, pinch hitter Mitch Meyer knocked a bases-loaded RBI single, and Witt broke the game open with a two-run single into right field. Witt finished 3-for-6 with three RBIs.

"In the dugout, it just (felt like we were) going to score," Witt said. "It took a little while today."

With two outs and two strikes in the ninth, Ross Kivett doubled into the right field gap and reached third on an error, scoring when Witt followed with an RBI single that stunned the record crowd of 3,574 at Goss Stadium.

"We found a way, the way this team's kind of been all year long, down to our last strike," Wildcats coach Brad Hill said.

The rally spoiled a strong effort by Oregon State starter Matt Boyd, who struck out three and held the Big 12's top-hitting team to five hits over seven innings.

"I don't think anybody in our locker room feels good about being one strike away from winning the ballgame and losing the game," Oregon State coach Pat Casey said.

Pac-12 Player of the Year Michael Conforto put Oregon State (48-11) ahead in the fourth with a two-run homer over the right field bleachers.

The Wildcats got one back in the sixth when, Kivett led off with a double and Witt followed with an infield single. Boyd then hit two straight batters to force in a run.

Jake Mattys (9-1) earned the win with two innings of relief.

Oregon State reliever Max Engelbrekt left the game with the bases loaded in the eighth because of back spasms, and was replaced by Jace Fry (0-1) — a sophomore with just 2 2-3 innings pitched all season — who took the loss.

"We've been in this position before. Maybe the stakes are higher, but I really think this team, in front our fans, is going to respond," Conforto said. "It comes down to us playing the type of baseball that we should."
