Auburn secures final spot in College World Series


CORVALLIS, Ore. (AP) — Sonny DiChiara hit his 22nd home run, Blake Burkhalter pitched 2 2/3 innings of hitless relief for his 15th save, and Auburn beat No. 3 national seed Oregon State 4-3 to secure the final spot in the College World Series. Auburn won the Corvallis Super Regional to advance to the CWS for the second time in the last three tournaments. The Tigers, the fourth SEC team to make the NCAA tournament’s final eight, will play Mississippi on Saturday. Oregon State was looking to advance to the CWS for the eighth time in school history, and seventh since 2005. DiChiara opened the scoring in the third inning with a two-run homer. Auburn added two runs in the sixth after two errors by Oregon State.
