Oregon Ducks Drop Back to Back Games Before Starting Pac-12 Play


The Oregon Ducks Baseball team was on a roll entering a mid-week series with San Francisco with an undefeated home record. As a team they were hitting close to a .315 average. Mitchell Tolman and Matt Euriste were leading the team in hitting, but then San Francisco pitching proved to be barely hittable and Oregon pitching turned suspect.

Oregon lost both games this week against San Francisco and will begin Pac-12 play on Friday on the road at Cal with a two game losing streak. One of the big reasons for the losses was former Duck Connor Hoffman, now with the Dons who scored on an RBI single in the third inning of Thursday’s game. San Francisco won the game 8-2.

Hoffman played a key role in the first game starting out with a single and scoring a run for San Francisco in the first inning. Oregon had four hits on Tuesday in their first home loss of the season. As a team the Ducks were able to get eight men on base, but were unable to score.

George Horton hopes his team can find their way out of this most recent hitting rut. They will have to do it on the road as Pac-12 play begins for the Oregon Ducks with a three game series this weekend at Cal against the Golden Bears.
