If the name Trevor Larnach sounds familiar, it’s because he’s the player from Oregon State who belted the go-ahead home run in Game 2 of the 2018 College World Series national championship series.
He hit the two-run shot off former Navarre Raider Matt Cronin, the closer for Arkansas at the time and now with the Washington Nationals, just moments after the Razorbacks nearly secured the national title.
A pop fly that should have sealed the deal for Arkansas fell between three fielders and gave the Beavers new life.
Cadyn Grenier, who hit the pop up that should have been caught, tallied a base hit. Larnach followed with a homer that lifted his team to a 5-3 win.
Oregon State went on to win a decisive third game. Larnach went out a champion and on to his pro career in the Minnesota Twins organization.
The 22-year-old outfielder and overall No. 1 pick in 2018 is now playing baseball with the Double-A Pensacola Blue Wahoos. Larnach moved up July 16 from Class A Advanced Fort Myers.
