STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) — Tim Arakawa lined a two-run single with the bases loaded in the seventh inning to drive in the tying and go-ahead runs as Oklahoma State came from behind to defeat Cal State Fullerton 6-4 on Sunday and win the Stillwater regional.
The top-seeded Cowboys (48-16) beat Cal State Fullerton for the second straight day and advanced to the super regional next weekend to face either Oregon or UC Irvine. It will be Oklahoma State's first trip to a super regional since 2007 and just its second overall.
Cal State Fullerton (34-24) threatened in the top of the ninth, loading the bases with two outs, but Brendan McCurry struck out Taylor Bryant to eliminate the Titans.
Oklahoma State trailed 4-1 heading into the bottom of the sixth inning, but a two-run homer by Conor Costello pulled them to within one.
