Wildcats treat Ducks to rerun.
TUCSON, Ariz. - Second-ranked Arizona doubled its softball pleasure this weekend at Oregon's expense with another 8-1 Pac-10 Conference victory on Sunday - the same score the Wildcats beat the Ducks by Saturday night.
Senior Jackie Coburn hit a two-run home run to break a 1-1 tie in the bottom of the first and give Arizona a 3-1 lead against UO starter Alicia Cook. The hosts added two runs in the fifth on Shelly Schultz's double, which chased Cook (6-4), and scored three more times in the sixth off reliever Lindsey Kontra.
Oregon scored first on Beth Boskovich's single for her team-leading 16th RBI that drove in Breanne Sabol. The Ducks finished with six hits - two each by Boskovich, Lovena Chaput and Erin Goodell - and Chaput's double was their only extra-base hit.
Oregon (23-13, 3-4 Pac-10) will play host to Santa Clara twice today, at 12:30 p.m. and 2:30 p.m., after Oregon State opted out of its game at Howe Field against the Broncos. Admission is free.
