OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — Thomas Hatch threw a complete game, Garrett Benge singled in the only run in the fourth inning and Oklahoma State opened the College World Series with a 1-0 victory over UC Santa Barbara on Saturday.

Hatch extended his shutout streak to 26 innings with his fourth complete game and third shutout of the season.

The Cowboys (42-20) will play Monday against the winner of Saturday night’s game between Arizona and Miami. The Gauchos (42-19-1) will meet the Arizona-Miami loser Monday.

Hatch (9-2), a third-round draft pick of the Chicago Cubs, allowed five hits, walked one and struck out seven in his dazzling 112-pitch performance for the Cowboys, who are in the CWS for the first time since 1999.
