In what was a full day of baseball, Oregon outlasted UC Davis in both games of a doubleheader on Saturday. In game one, James Acuna pitched a great seven innings with outstanding play from his defense. Oregon was able to get the bats going behind in the middle of the game to earn four runs and support the great play of the defense. Kenyon Yovan came into close and pitched 3 K’s in two innings to clinch a 4-1 victory for the Ducks. In game two, Kolby Somers took the mound and Oregon continued its superb defensive play and showed some offensive power as well. Oregon came out of the gates hitting well to gain an early lead and increased the lead all the way through. Oregon provided some exciting plays in this game, including a perfectly executed sacrifice bunt in the sixth inning, a tremendous run-saving diving catch by Jakob Goldfarb, and a deep two RBI double by Evan Williams in the eighth inning. Oregon will finish their four game series against the Aggies on Sunday at 12pm.
