SPORTS RECAP: Beavers roll; Ducks come, stay alive; Morgan paces U.S. win; Stoll claims junior golf tourney

Oregon State pulls away

• The Beavers, after a pair of one-run cliffhanger victories, beat Texas A&M 6-1 Sunday night at Corvallis' Goss Stadium.

Winner Ben Wetzler pitched a complete game, as OSU advanced to next week's NCAA baseball super regional.

Oregon gains momentum, will play Monday

• At PK Park in Eugene, the Oregon Ducks took two must-win games Sunday to stay alive in their NCAA baseball regional.

The Ducks beat San Francisco 6-1 and then stopped Rice 11-0, forcing another game with Rice at 6 p.m. Monday to decide which team advances to the super regionals next week.

Alex Morgan ignites U.S. team

• Portland Thorns FC forward Alex Morgan scored twice as the U.S. beat Canada 3-0 Sunday in a women's soccer exhibition at Toronto.

Morgan broke a scoreless tie with goals in the 70th and 72nd minutes on shots from the top left corner of the 18-yard box.

Sydney Leroux finished the scoring on a breakaway with about one minute remaining.

No. 1 Oklahoma ends Husky season

• At the Women's College World Series, Washington's softball team beat Michigan 4-1 Sunday morning to eliminate the Wolverines, but the 11th-ranked Huskies then lost to No. 1 Oklahoma 6-2 Sunday night to drop out of the tournament.

The Huskies finished 45-17.

A three-run third inning by the Sooners broke a scoreless deadlock, and Washington had just three hits in the game.

Kaitlin Inglesby, UW's All-American from Central Catholic High, suffered the loss, allowing eight hits and seven walks, with five earned runs, in a complete game. She struck out six.

The junior finished her season with a 23-9 record and 1.95 ERA, with 166 hits, 52 walks and 141 strikeouts in 187 innings. She also led Washington with 62 RBIs and 12 home runs, ranked second in batting average (.354) and was fourth in doubles (8).

Ellsbury still out

• Boston center fielder Jacoby Ellsbury (tight left groin) missed his third game in a row, but the Red Sox downed the New York Yankees 3-0 in a rain-shortened, 5 1/2-inning game Sunday night at Yankee Stadium.

The Red Sox said Ellsbury's health had improved and that the former Oregon State star from Madras might be able to play Tuesday when Boston opens a homestand against Texas.

Boston won the weekend series 3-0 and leads the American League East by 2 1/2 games over Baltimore and three games over the Yanks and Tampa Bay.

Stoll, Terrell on top at junior golf event

• Gigi Stoll of Beaverton won the Pacific Northwest Junior PGA Championship girls 16-18 division Sunday at Tumwater (Wash.) Valley Golf Club.

Stoll, 16, fired a final-round, 3-under-par 69 for a two-day 142 total and a one-shot win over first-day leader Olivia Benzen of Tacoma, Wash.

The victory gave Stoll a spot in the 38th Junior PGA Championship, July 30-Aug. 2 at Trump National Golf Club in Potomac Falls, Va.

Benzen shot 73-70—143.

Portland's Daniel Terrell tied for first place in the boys 13-15 division. He closed with a 70, after an opening 76, matching the 72-74—146 total of Zach Evens from Mercer Island, Wash.
