The Oregon Ducks baseball team (29-10, 8-5 Pac-12) hosted the University of Washington Cougars  (17-17, 7-6)  in a rainy matchup at PK Park in Eugene on Thursday, April 17. The Ducks came off a close win against the University of San Diego Toreros on Monday, barely beating them 4-3. During Thursday’s game, steady rain kept the Cougars at bay. There was a ten-minutes rain delay at the bottom of the seventh inning when the Ducks already held a substantial lead against the Cougars 11-0.

The Ducks will play their second game of their three game series against the Cougars tomorrow night at 6 p.m. at PK Park in Eugene, Ore.
