No. 8-ranked UO pounded Boise State 9-0 in five innings for its fourth win in a row.

OSU raised its season record to 3-3 with a 12-2, six-inning victory against Appalachian State.

  • Vikings lead early

    Portland State (2-3) scored twice in the top of the first inning, but Cal scored once each in the second and third, then five times in the fourth and once in the fifth to defeat the Vikings 8-3.

    Cal (3-1) finished with eight hits, while the Viks had six.

    Leadoff hitter Shae Nelson and clean-up batter Crysta Conn went 2 for 3 for Portland State. Conn and Brittany Hendrickson each drove in a run.

    Freshman Meagan Hendrix got the start and lasted 3 1/3 innings. Her record fell to 2-1. Karyn Wright pitched the final 2 2/3 innings.

    Oregon's win streak reached four with its 9-0 victory over Boise State (1-4).

    The Ducks scored seven times in the bottom of second inning.

    Courtney Ceo had three of Oregon's 11 hits and stole three stolen bases. Alexa Peterson and Janelle Lindvall each drove in two runs.

    Cheridan Hawkins worked the first four innings and improved to 3-1. She gave up one hit and two walks, with four strikeouts.

    Junior center fielder Dani Gilmore capped her big offensive weekend by going 3 for 4 with two RBIs and three runs.

    She made sure OSU got on top, leading off the game with her third home run of the season.

    A four-run third inning gave the Beavers a 5-0 lead, and the Mountaineers (0-6) never recovered.

    Freshman Alleyah Armendariz picked up the win, allowing six hits and one earned run in four innings.

    At Tempe, Ariz., Arizona State edged Oregon State 17-16 in a Sunday dual meet.
