– The NCAA Regional will mark the Beavers’ 14th postseason appearance since 2005.

– Claunch is 28-for-69 (.406) during the streak. He has five doubles, three home runs, and 12 runs batted in during it.

– Oregon State last played at TCU in the 2009 Fort Worth Regional, going 2-0 versus Texas A&M but 0-2 versus the host Horned Frogs.
