Matthews Set UO Record For Doubles

EUGENE, Ore. — Gabe Matthews hit his 48th career double to set Oregon baseball's career record Tuesday, though it came in a 6-4 nonconference loss to Portland before 303 fans in PK Park.

The 19th-ranked Ducks (16-7) committed two errors and misplayed a couple of other situations that contributed significantly to the defeat. Thus was squandered a two-hit day for Matthews that included his record-setting double, and a four-hit game by Aaron Zavala.

"Even though it's a loss today and it's real salt in the wound — we didn't play well, and we know it — the positive is what Gabe Matthews has done for the program, in his consistency, his steadiness of play," UO coach Mark Wasikowski said.
