Oregon Baseball vs. Hawaii Game 3 Recap: Ducks Pour On The Runs Late, Win 3rd Straight Over Rainbows

Oregon rides the hot bats of Ryon Healy and Aaron Payne to their third consecutive victory to open the season.

Another game, another win for the Oregon Ducks baseball team. Freshman Cole Irvin pitched seven innings of three-run baseball, and Aaron Payne and Ryon Healy had four hits each as the Ducks defeated the Rainbows, 9-5, to take game three of the four game series.

Irvin was stellar in his collegiate debut, giving up a run in the bottom of the first inning, then completely shutting the Rainbows down until the seventh. He allowed only seven baserunners (five hits, two walks) in his seven innings. He had four strikeouts, and ten outs came via ground balls.

The Duck offense took their time getting going, but poured on the runs once they started. A sacrifice fly by Kyle Garlick tied the game in the fourth, then went on to score two in the fifth, two in the seventh, three in the eighth, and one in the ninth on a solo homer by Healy. Five Ducks had multi-hit games. Oregon had five extra-base hits, including three doubles, a triple, and the Healy home run.

The only downside for Oregon was the bullpen struggling for the second consecutive night, with Clayton Crum giving up two runs in a third of an inning. Garrett Cleavinger and Jimmie Sherfy picked him up with 1 2/3 scoreless.

Same two teams on Monday at 3:05 as the Ducks go for the four-game sweep. Righty Adam Gold takes the mound for Oregon against Hawaii's Corey McDonald.
