The Oregon baseball team came back from a 6-2 deficit to defeat Arizona 7-6 in 10 innings Saturday night at PK Park. The win gives the Ducks (33-13, 12-8 Pac-12) the series win over Arizona (18-27, 7-16).
After a pair of strikeouts to lead off the bottom of the seventh, Tyler Baumgartner kept the inning alive with a single. Then, Mitchell Tolman got hit by a pitch to bring up Kyle Garlick, who smashed a triple into the right center field gap. The hit cut Arizona’s lead in half to bring up Packard. Packard crushed a 2-1 breaking ball into the Oregon bullpen in right, topping off the improbable comeback.
Baumgartner went 3-for-3 with a walk and two RBIs.
Oregon starting pitcher Jeff Gold went 5.1 innings, giving up five runs (all earned), eight hits and no walks while striking out five.
