  • BELLEVUE, Wash. — Mitchell Tolman drove in two more runs on Wednesday against Seattle, but it wasn't enough for the No. 11 Oregon baseball team in a 3-2 nonconference loss at Bannerwood Park.
    Oregon (34-11) had runners at the corners and one out in the top of the ninth but Brett Thomas grounded into a 4-6-3 double play to end the game.
    Tolman, who was 1-for-3, finished the two-game series against Seattle with nine RBIs. Thomas went 2-for-5 with a run scored.
    Seattle (18-26) took an early 2-0 lead with single runs in both the first and second innings. Chase Fields led off the first with a single and scored on a Nate Roberts' double. Fields made it 2-0 after driving in Steve Kirbach in the second.
    Tolman tied the game with a two-run single in the top of the third that drove in Thomas and Nick Catalano, but Seattle took the lead back in the bottom of the fourth on a sacrifice fly by Cash McGuire.
    Cole Wiper (1-1) took the loss, allowing a run on two hits in two innings pitched. Andrew Olson (5-4) got the win for Seattle while Eric Yardley picked up his 10th save.
    Oregon continues a five-game road trip when the Ducks open a three-game Pac-12 Conference series at Washington State on Friday at 6 p.m.
