CORVALLIS — The Oregon State Beavers host the Auburn Tigers in Game 3 of the Corvallis Super Regional at Goss Stadium on Monday.

Winner advances to the College World Series.

The third-seeded Beavers tied Sunday night’s best-of-three series 1-1, defeating the 14th seeded Tigers 4-3 in a fun elimination game. Beavers ace Cooper Hjerpe threw himself through an undisclosed illness to contend for the win to win, hitting six and allowing three runs in 5 2/3 innings. When he left with two outs in the sixth, a sell-out crowd chanted his name and he returned for a memorable curtain call.

The Beavers will look to Jaren Hunter for the season. The 6-foot-2 right-hander emerged as a midweek starter in March and finished the season with a 2-1 record and a 4.01 ERA in 11 starts. Hunter has served three times in the postseason — twice in the Pac-12 tournament and once in the Regionals — and hasn’t earned a decision, allowing for seven earned runs in 9 2/3 innings.

In Hunter’s most recent start, a do-or-die game against Vanderbilt last Monday, he gave up two hits and two runs in 3 1/3 innings while striking five. The Beavers won 7-6. Oregon State chose Hunter over the weekend, starter Jacob Kmatz, a 6-foot-3 freshman who is 8-2 this season with a 4.19 ERA.

The Tigers start with career-best junior right-hander Mason Barnett (3-2, 4.13). In a game that promoted Auburn to the Super Regionals, Barnett threw a one-hit shutout against UCLA, hitting 10 in 5 1/3 innings.

The Beavers are attempting promotion to the College World Series for the eighth time in school history and the seventh time since 2005. They are 29-11 in eliminators in the super-regional era – including 5-1 under coach Mitch Canham – and have already won two eliminators this postseason.
