Nyhus one-hitter leads Oregon past OSU.
CORVALLIS - Ani Nyhus tossed her third one-hitter in the past two weeks to lead No. 14 Oregon to a 2-0 victory over No. 15 Oregon State in a Pac-10 softball game on Friday at the OSU Softball Complex.
The Ducks (30-9, 4-1 Pac-10) got all the runs they needed in the first two innings when Beth Boskovich drove home Jenn Poore with a single in the first inning and Suzie Barnes doubled home Dani Baird, who led the Ducks with two hits, in the second.
That was plenty for Nyhus, who gave up only a single to Vanessa Iapala in the fourth inning and struck out eight while walking only one. Only three OSU batters reached base.
Lissman helps OSU hold off second-ranked Cardinal
CORVALLIS - Mike Lissman homered twice and drove in four runs to lead Oregon State to a 5-4 upset of No. 2 Stanford in a Pac-10 baseball game on Friday at Goss Stadium.

Lissman homered in the second and fourth innings, and Chris Campos had three hits for the Beavers. Jed Lowrie hit a two-run homer in the eighth inning for Stanford, and Brian Hall added a solo shot.

Swinnen improved to 4-1 in conference matches by rallying to beat Clemens 0-6, 6-4, 11-9, but every other Oregon singles player lost in straight sets. Swinnen and Arron Spencer gave UCLA's eighth-ranked duo of Alberto Francis and Kris Kwinta an 8-6 tussle, but the Bruins swept the doubles.
