The Oregon Duck baseball team wanted to finish the season on a high note. They did the exact opposite by getting beat 10-1 to the UCLA Bruins. The Ducks offense was stifled by UCLA pitcher Jon Olsen as he went 8 innings, giving up 1 run on 4 hits, striking out 8 and only walking 1. He was in control the whole game, at one point he retired 15 in a row after Kasser led off the first with a double. Sophomore Cole Stringer got the start and was only able to go 2 innings giving up 4 runs on 6 hits. Oregon finishes the season 30-25 and 12-18 in the Pac 12.
Game Story (Nick Baxter)
The Oregon Ducks did not have a runner reach second base until the ninth inning. With two potential MLB first-rounders (UCLA’s Griffin Canning and Oregon’s David Peterson) taking the mound, the hits for both offenses would be few-and-far-between. It would be a matter of who made the most mistakes and at what point could those mistakes come back to hurt the team. Canning had all the answers for the Ducks offense going the full nine innings, accumulating 10 strikeouts, and surrendering only four hits. David Peterson’s final start at PK Park becomes another loss and an inconsequential smudge on what would be considered a storybook book season for the six-foot-six southpaw. The Ducks will play the Bruins tomorrow at 6pm at PK Park.
