Fresh off of their first sweep since 2016, Oregon baseball is looking to carry their momentum into a road series with #18 UCLA this weekend. The Ducks still appear to be on the outside looking in at the NCAA Tournament, but with six games left in the regular season, could still climb as high as third place in the PAC-12 standings. If they’re to do that, Oregon will need to overcome their struggles on the road, where they’ve gone 6-15 this season. The Ducks series with UCLA opens Friday at 4 p.m. down in Westwood.

Oregon softball is the consensus No. 1 team in the country going into the 2018 NCAA Tournament. The Ducks begin a run towards the Women’s College World Series on Thursday against the University of Albany at Jane Sanders Stadium in the Eugene Regional. BYU and Drake will also compete over the weekend in the Eugene Regional to fight for who advances to the Super Regional after this weekend’s double-elimination style first round. Members of the team spoke to the media before the team’s Tuesday afternoon practice to preview the regional. The full interviews are below.
