The Oregon baseball team kicked off the Nashville Regional in explosive fashion, demolishing Clemson 18-1 Friday afternoon. Besides Oregon’s 20-4 rout of Ohio State on March 9, the No. 2-seeded Ducks haven’t scored more runs in a game all season. Against No. 3 seed Clemson, the Ducks compiled 20 hits, two home runs, three triples, […]
There’s no place like … Nashville? When the Oregon Ducks baseball team learned they would not be hosting a regional and instead travelling to the Vanderbilt Regional in Nashville, perhaps there was a sigh of relief from Coach George Horton. PK...
The Oregon baseball team lost on senior night, won three fewer regular season games than it did last year and will travel to Nashville for Regionals, Oregon’s first round on the road since 2010. If the Ducks don’t advance to Super Regionals, head coach George Horton and his team won’t look back on this season with […]
Major League Baseball teams have increasingly embraced the infield shift, where one side of the diamond is overloaded with infielders to increase teams’ chances of recording outs. This trend brings one thought to Jay Uhlman’s mind: It’s about time. Uhlman, Oregon’s infield and hitting coach, said college baseball teams have used infield shifting for “at […]
The Oregon baseball team (31-10, 10-5 Pac-12) narrowly beat Washington State 2-1 Saturday to sweep the Cougars (17-19, 7-8), thanks to some excellent defense from the Ducks’ outfielders.

The Oregon baseball team (25-10) handled the UC Riverside Highlanders (14-15) by a final score of 7-2 Friday night at PK Park, thanks mainly to starting pitcher Tommy Thorpe and right fielder Tyler Baumgartner.

Oregon’s spring sports are moving at a tremendous pace as we head into the final month of regular season games on the diamond and a speedy stretch of 11 events for Outdoor track and field. It is still an early...
Jessica Sorenson stood on home plate during an overcast day PK Park, blindfolded. Her boyfriend, Oregon baseball reliever Darrell Hunter, stood by the pitcher’s mound in front of all of his teammates. After her sister removed the blindfold, Sorenson saw the group of baseball players and the video board, which had a message: “Jessica Sorenson, will you marry me?” […]
After dropping its first two games against Stanford (10-11, 3-3 Pac-12) on Friday, the Oregon baseball team destroyed the Cardinal 9-2 on Sunday in Stanford, Calif., to avoid a sweep. One huge inning from the Ducks offense was the difference in the game. Oregon opened the scoring in the first inning. An Aaron Payne walk and an […]
The Oregon baseball team hasn’t played a road game in over a month. That will change this week, as the Ducks (17-5, 5-1 Pac-12) embark on a 530 mile bus ride to San Francisco on Monday to start a 10-game road trip. “I’m not a fan of bus rides,” Oregon catcher Shaun Chase said after […]
