Oregon Softball Completes the Sweep of Stanford with 4-1 Win

#4 Oregon completed its second series sweep of the Pac 12 season with a 4-1 victory over unranked Stanford. Miranda Elish, who also started and won game 1 of the series, threw a complete game gem, giving up only 2 hits and striking out 10. Elish surrendered the Ducks’ 1 run lead in the top of the fourth on a deep home run from Whitney Burks. The Ducks answered back quickly, putting up 3 runs in the bottom of the 4th inning behind a Haley Cruse single, and a pinch-hit long ball from Shannon Rhodes. Oregon will travel up to Seattle next week and take on the top-ranked Washington Huskies, in a series that will likely feature two matchups between Megan Kleist and Taran Alvelo, a couple of the great arms in college softball today.
