The loss sets up a one-game championship final in the Regional's double-elimination format. Rice and Oregon meet Monday at 8:05 pm at the Ducks' PK Park. The winner advances to next week's Super Regional round while the loser's season comes to an end.
After the Owls posted a shutout victory over Oregon in a winner's bracket game on Saturday night the Ducks turned the tables on Sunday, handing Rice its second shutout of the season dating back to early March. Oregon knocked a solo home run in the bottom of the first and proceeded to ten more unanswered runs over the next seven frames off five Owl pitchers.
Rice was limited to just three singles by Ford Stainback, Leon Byrd and Skyler Ewing. The Owls dropped to 43-18 on the season. Oregon improved to 48-15 overall. Rice head coach Wayne Graham stated there is still at least one final game to play.
"Give credit to Oregon for hitting and pitching well," coach Graham said. "It was not our day today, but there is still one game left to play. We'll have to play a lot better to continue our season."
