Oregon State nearly squandered its best offensive start to an inning in Game 2 of the College World Series due to a poorly executed bunt, but three perfectly executed bunts led to the Beavers scoring a go-ahead run in the fifth inning and the game-tying run in the ninth. Therefore, the team’s tumultuous relationship with bunting in Wednesday’s 5-3 win was a net positive.

Oregon State bunted five times in Game 2 – twice for a single, twice for a sacrifice that advanced a baserunner to second base and one very costly bunt that resulted in a rally-killing double play.
