Tolman Leads Oregon Ducks in Extra Inning Win Over UC Riverside


The Oregon Ducks started a five game road trip losing six of their last nine games. On Tuesday against UC Irvine it would take extra innings to pick up a much needed road win. One of the big reasons for the win was Mitchell Tolman.

The Junior broke out of his recent slump going three for six with three RBIs and three runs scored. Oregon won the game 10-7 in extra innings. It took thirteen innings for the Ducks to pick up the win. The game was tied 7-7 from the eighth inning. In the game Tolman hit a milestone as an Oregon Duck driving in his one-hundredth career RBI. He had just one RBI in his last thirteen games before his three on Tuesday.

Oregon pitching returned to form, and without using a weekend starter. The Ducks struck out sixteen hitters among the six pitchers Head Coach George Horton used in the game. Jacob Corn will get the start in the short two game series with UC Riverside on Wednesday before Oregon continues their road trip to face Pac-12 foe Arizona this weekend. The weekend series will be broadcast on the Pac-12 Networks.

The Ducks and UC Riverside take the field at 3pm Pacific Time on Wednesday.
