Ollie Linton singled with the bases loaded in the 10th inning to advance the Anteaters to the third round of the CWS. They will play Oregon State Wednesday at 4 p.m. The game will be telecast on ESPN2.
UC Irvine became the first team in the 61-year history of the CWS to win extra-inning games on consecutive days. The Anteaters defeated Cal State Fullerton 5-4 in 13 innings Monday in a game that took 5 hours and 40 minutes, the longest in CWS history.
The Anteaters (47-16-1) must beat defending champion Oregon State on Wednesday and again Thursday to win their bracket and reach the best-of-three championship round.
The Sun Devils (49-15) lost consecutive games for the first time since March.
