The PAC 12 champion Ducks will host a super regional in Eugene, but they start their postseason road on Thursday when they host the Albany Great Danes. BYU and Drake are also set to battle in the Eugene Regional on Thursday. The full interviews are below.

Oregon Baseball completed their first three game sweep since April of 2017 and their first Pac 12 sweep since April of 2016 Sunday afternoon with a 4-3 walk-off victory. The Ducks trailed 2-0 after three innings, but then tied it up in the fourth and fifth innings with a Gabe Matthews hit by pitch to score Kyle Kasser and then Kasser scored again in the fifth when he sprinted home after an error throw to first base. The Ducks then went down 3-2 in the sixth, but responded again in the seventh as Kyle Kasser roped a tripe to the wall, only to score on the next at-bat via a Spencer Steer sac fly. With the bases loaded and two outs in the bottom of the ninth inning, a Trenton Stolz wild pitch scored Kasser to end the game. With the win, the Ducks jump above .500 with a 25-24 overall record and an 11-13 conference record. The Ducks will look to make it four in a row as they travel down to Pasadena to take on the #11 ranked UCLA Bruins on Friday, May 18.
