CORVALLIS – Matthew Gretler hit a tie-breaking solo homer in the seventh, and ace Cooper Hjerpe pitched two innings of hitless relief Monday afternoon as Oregon State won the Corvallis Regional with a 7-6 win over Vanderbilt at Goss Stadium.

The Beavers, the No. 3 overall seed, took a 7-6 lead when Gretler launched a one-out solo homer to left-center field. Then Hjerpe, OSU’s Friday night starter, made his first relief appearance of the season a memorable one, striking out five Vanderbilt hitters during a two-inning stint.
