Pac-12 Round-Up: Ducks sweep No. 14 ASU



EUGENE, Ore. — After each team’s Friday opener was rained out, both Oregon and Oregon State came back to win their respective series at home this weekend.

After 1-0 and 3-1 wins in Saturday’s doubleheader, No. 23 Oregon finished a sweep of No. 14 Arizona State when Jimmie Sherfy struck out Nathaniel Causey with the bases loaded to end the game in a 4-3 Ducks win.

Brando Tessar won the game on the mound to improve to 4-0. Aaron Jones was 2-for-3 from the plate with three RBI.

It was the third Oregon sweep of the season. The Ducks will open a three-game series with UCLA Thursday in Los Angeles.

OSU beat Washington 9-0 in Saturday’s second game after losing 3-2 in a 10 inning game.
