Following a solid outing from Cole Irvin on Friday, David Peterson took the mound on Friday night giving up four runs on seven hits in 5 2/3 innings. It was not his best outing of the year, but the Oregon Offense was again stifled by Stanford pitching. Oregon did get two runs in the eighth inning to cut the lead to 4-2, but that was all.

Again, it was Stanford Pitching, allowing just two hits in nine inning, so far five hits for the series against Stanford. With the loss, Oregon fell to 14-15 in the Pac-12 and may have fallen out of contention at 29-25 for a post season NCAA Bid. A win gives George Horton’s team a .500 record to close the Pac-12 regular season in an underwhelming season for the Oregon Ducks Baseball team.

Depending on how the rest of the Pac-12 falls, Oregon could still land a post season but they would need some help. Team RPI is a big piece of the puzzle, but with losses the Ducks Team RPI is falling. To start the series vs Stanford they were in the mid 70s.

The Pac-12 season has been a roller coaster for not just the Oregon Ducks, but for the Conference as a whole. The final game of the Regular season against Stanford is set for Saturday at 1pm Pacific Time with Matt Mercer taking the mound for the Ducks.
