SB | No. 17 Oregon Blazes Past Army 11-0 in Run Rule Win

After no. 17 Oregon Softball split their first weekend of Mary Nutter Collegiate Classic play in Cathedral City, CA, the Ducks took to the field with fervor in their 11-0, five inning win against Army on Friday, February 22. Jordan Dail received the starting nod, tossing five scoreless innings to go with five hits, two walks, and eight strikeouts en route to a 7-0 record. From the plate, Oregon struck for four runs in the first inning without collecting a hit, doing their damage as starter Renee Poirier and reliever Jolie Duong combined for five walks and two hit-by-pitches in the frame. After a Cherish Burks solo-shot in the third, the Ducks secured the win on a six-run fourth inning, which saw UO collect six hits against Duong and Taylor Drayton, Army’s third pitcher in the game. The win moves Oregon to 9-3 with three games remaining in the tournament, beginning with Texas A&M on Saturday, February 23 at 9 AM. After that, the Ducks close out with a 12 PM Saturday match-up with no. 23 Texas Tech before the team’s Sunday getaway game against UC Santa Barbara at 9 AM.
