Ducks Avoid Season Sweep

Oregon’s Shaun Chase had two home runs and the Ducks staved off a season sweep by the Beavers with a 6-2 non-league victory at PK Park. Oregon proved a discourteous host to the number one ranked Beavers… the first top ranked team to visit PK Park ever.

The Ducks will wrap up the regular season at home against Stanford for a three game series beginning Thursday.

Oregon State travels to Los Angeles where they’ll begin a three-game series against USC Friday.
