SB: Oregon Defeats Drake To Advance To Ninth Consecutive Super Regional

For the first time in Head Coach Mike White’s 9 year tenure, Oregon softball’s pitching staff breezed through the entire regional tournament without allowing a run. Sophomore right hander Miranda Elish went 7 complete innings striking out 11 Drake Bulldogs and allowing only 6 hits en route to a 3-0 win for Oregon. The Ducks were hitless through three innings, but had six hits in the fourth and fifth innings. Those 6 hits led to 3 runs, all of which came in the fifth inning. With the bases loaded and 1 out in the fifth, Alexis Mack blooped a single over the third baseman and shortstop’s heads to bring in Cherish Burks and Mia Camuso. In the same inning, Haley Cruse drove in Jenna Lilley with an RBI single up the middle. With this win, Oregon advances to their ninth consecutive super regional and awaits their opponent.
