AUSTIN, Texas – Oregon kept its 2021 season alive, led by dominant pitching in a pair of shutout victories over Saint Francis and Texas State on Saturday at the NCAA Austin Regional. Samaria Diaz, Makenna Kliethermes and Brooke Yanez combined to blank both opponents in 7-0 and 2-0 wins.
The Ducks will now need to beat host Texas twice on Sunday in order to move on to Super Regionals. The two teams will play at 1 p.m. PT on ESPN2. With an Oregon win, both teams will play a winner-take-all game following the first.
