Due to poor forecasted weather for Wednesday, the Oregon Ducks’ (8-3) Wednesday game turned into a Tuesday doubleheader against the Seattle University Redhawks (5-6). The Ducks are coming off three losses to Cal State Fullerton over the weekend, and now come in at No. 14 on the Baseball America top 25. Oregon is expected to start senior pitchers Jeff Gold (44) and Brando Tessar (3). The Redhawks started the season 4-1, but have dropped five of their last six games, all played on the road.

The Ducks play Game Two of their doubleheader against the Seattle Redhawks at 6:10pm at PK Park in Eugene, Ore.
