SUNDAY COLLEGE SOFTBALL ROUNDUP/Arizona takes third in a row from Oregon State; Simon Fraser wins two at Concordia


Oregon 5, WASHINGTON 3

• Oregon completed a three-game sweep in Seattle and pulled into a tie for first place in the Pac-12.

Megan Kleist (17-5) allowed 10 hits and three runs in six-plus innings, with two walks and five strikeouts.

Oregon took a 5-1 lead with a five-run third inning. Key blows in that frame were Jenna Lilley's two-run double and DJ Sanders' two-run home run.

Washington loaded the bases with one out in the fifth, then hit into a second-to-short-to-first double-play.

The Huskies scored in the sixth, but stranded runners on second and third.

Washington got a leadoff double in the seventh, which brought on Miranda Elish for her second save of 2018.

A single to left cut Oregon's lead to 5-3 with no one out. But the next batter hit into another 4-6-3 double-play, and then a grounder to shortstop ended the game.

The No. 2 Ducks improved to 41-7 overall and 15-3 in the Pac-12.

No. 1-ranked UCLA also is 15-3 in the conference.

The No. 4 Huskies fell to 41-8, 12-8.
