Oregon baseball (25-24, Pac-12 9-15) scored all three of its runs early on, and pitcher Ryne Nelson held off an Oregon State (33-15-1, Pac-12 19-5) comeback in the final innings to avoid a Civil War series sweep with a 3-2 win on Sunday at PK Park.

Though the Oregon track and field team has prepared for hot temperatures during the championship season, the first day of the Pac-12 Track and Field Championships in Tucson, Arizona, brought something different entirely.

Haley Cruse does anything that requires her team to win. She stepped to the mound in a time of need even though she hasn’t pitched since freshman year of high school. She hit a clutch home run to seal a comeback victory earlier this season. She can also dance to a mean beat.

Oregon baseball (23-21, Pac-12 8-12) fell to Arizona (21-23, Pac-12 9-14) 9-8 Saturday night, as Arizona came from behind to tie the game in the ninth inning, and then win it in the 11th off of an errant throw by Ducks pitcher Ryne Nelson.  

After running some of their fastest times all season at the Payton Jordan Invitational on Thursday, the Oregon men’s distance squad sent several runners to compete in the Linfield Open in McMinnville, Oregon, on Saturday and the Portland Twilight on Friday.

Leading up to today’s game, the Ducks were on a four game losing streak, dropping all three matchups against Oregon State last weekend and falling short 4-3 in their Friday night matchup with Utah. Today, the outcome would be different as the Ducks defeated Utah 9-4. 

Oregon softball lost a critical game against Utah 4-3 in Salt Lake City. The Ducks' final road trip of the season got off to a poor start Friday night as their season record fell to 21-26 overall and 4-15 in the Pac-12 on the season. The Utes improved to 16-32 on the season.
