The Oregon Duck Softball team cruised passed Wisconsin in the second meeting in as many days, run-ruling the Badgers 9-0 in five innings to take the Eugene Regional and advance to the Super Regionals. Mike White went with his third pitcher of the weekend, handing the ball to Miranda Elish, who pitched a scoreless five innings while giving up only one hit and three walks. Elish helped herself out from the batter’s box as well, driving in two runs as one of three Duck batters who tallied two RBIs on the day. The victory eliminates Wisconsin, and matches Oregon up with #14 Kentucky for a best-of-three series next weekend in Eugene. Listen below to a full game story and both Oregon’s and Wisconsin’s postgame press conferences.
