Bruins hand Ducks another 1-0 setback

EUGENE — Cole Irvin pitched a complete game, allowing just one unearned run, but for the second straight night No. 13 UCLA handed No. 10 Oregon a 1-0 defeat at PK Park Saturday.

Irvin (7-2), who allowed an unearned run in the top of the first inning, scattered six hits while striking out three and walking just one. The freshman lefty pitched his second complete game of the season but the Ducks stranded eight runners in the shutout.

It was the first time Oregon (28-10, 12-5 Pac-12) was shut out in back-to-back games since the Ducks were blanked by Arizona State and Oregon State in May 2009.

UCLA (25-10, 9-5 Pac-12) starter Nick Vander Tuig picked up the win moving to 6-3 on the season while allowing two hits in seven innings. David Berg got his second save in as many nights and his 10th of the season.

WASHINGTON 5-10, OREGON STATE 1-3 — At Seattle, Washington scored eight runs in the eighth inning of Game 2 to complete a doubleheader sweep of fifth-ranked Oregon State at Husky Ballpark.

Washington (11-25 overall, 5-9 Pac-12 Conference) tied the score in the eighth with a single through the right side by Michael Camporeale and then took the lead when Trevor Mitsui doubled to the gap in right, scoring two.

All told, the Huskies sent 14 to the plate in the eighth, scoring eight runs off five Oregon State pitchers.

Oregon State's Andrew Moore worked 61/3 innings and did not figure in the decision.

In the opener, Matt Boyd threw his third consecutive quality start but took the loss.

Boyd scattered nine hits and four runs — three earned — over six innings. The Huskies managed three consecutive singles during a three-run sixth to get the lead.

Washington scored its fourth run off Boyd in the seventh and added another off OSU reliever Taylor Starr.

The Beavers were held to just five hits by Washington starter Jared Fisher, who worked seven scoreless innings for his first win of the season. He improved to 1-2 on the year.

Oregon State avoided the shutout in the ninth when Ryan Barnes drove in Michael Conforto with a sacrifice fly to center. Conforto, Dylan Davis and Kavin Keyes all had two hits in the loss.

The teams finish the three-game series today at 1 p.m.
