The big hit of the inning was a grand slam home run by Nick Vogt of UC Santa Barbara.
In the bottom of the sixth, Corvallis would add three more runs highlighted by a two-run homer by Riley Way of L-C State giving the Knights the 9-3 lead at that point.
Left fielder Taison Corio of Cal Poly put an exclamation on things with a monster blast to right in the bottom of the eighth to put Corvallis up 11-7.
Lefty Colton Meyer of Linfield got the win in relief.
Corio went 2-for-5 with two RBIs and Vogt went 3-for-4 with 4 RBIs.
With the win, Corvallis improved to 33-10 overall. The Knights return to West Coast League play on Tuesday, July 27 at Goss Stadium as they welcome the Walla Walla Sweets for a three-game series.
