Oregon State eliminates Indiana at College World Series

OMAHA, Neb. — Matt Boyd pitched a four-hitter and struck out 11 as Oregon State made a fourth-inning sacrifice fly stand up for a 1-0 victory over Indiana in a College World Series elimination game Wednesday night.

The Beavers (52-12) won the first 1-0 game at the CWS since 1985. They face Mississippi State (50-18) on Friday needing to beat the Bulldogs twice to reach the championship final.

The Beavers scored in the fourth when Kavin Keyes singled, went to third on Ryan Barnes' double and scored on Jake Rodriguez's sacrifice fly to right.

Boyd, who pitched his fourth complete game and third shutout this season, flummoxed the Hoosiers with his mix of fastballs and offspeed pitches. He faced the minimum through four innings. The senior left-hander held the Hoosiers hitless until Michael Basil looped a ball into short right in the fifth.

Big Ten champion Indiana (49-16) was the first team from the conference to make it to the CWS since Michigan in 1984. The Hoosiers were the first from the Big Ten to win a game here since the Wolverines, led by former Reds great Barry Larkin, beat Stanford in 1983. They batted .211 and scored just a total of six runs in three CWS games.

Meanwhile, UCLA (46-17) awaits the winner of today's fifth meeting of the year between N.C. State (50-15) and North Carolina (58-11).

Manziel and A&M: Johnny Manziel, the subject of much discussion after a recent tweet about staying at Texas A&M, apparently considered leaving College Station before last season, according to the Dallas Morning News.

After a redshirt season in 2011, Manziel was arrested in the bar district on June 29, 2012. Coach Kevin Sumlin later said the quarterback was disciplined internally. The Dallas Morning News reported that Manziel was initially suspended for the entire 2012 season. The suspension was overturned by the dean of student life, the Morning News reported.

If the ruling had been upheld on appeal, the newspaper said Manziel "would have felt it was necessary to transfer" before the season that eventually became a successful Heisman Trophy campaign.

The San Antonio Express-News reported that Manziel's recent frustration on Twitter was over a parking ticket he received in College Station while he was away fishing in Port Aransas.

Tennessee: The Vols' athletic department is expecting a budget deficit between $2 million and $3 million this year. The athletic department cut its 2012-13 budget to $99 million from $105.9 million. But revenue is expected to be no more than $97 million.
