UO release – EUGENE, Ore. — The Eugene Regional in the NCAA Championship tournament will go seven games, after LSU won a do-or-die game against No. 13 Oregon on Sunday in PK Park, 4-1. The Ducks (39-15) would have clinched the regional with a win Sunday, having gone unbeaten to that point while the Tigers had dropped a game. But LSU got six quality innings from reliever Javen Coleman and two big hits each from leadoff man Dylan Crews and cleanup hitter Gavin Dugas to force a deciding game Monday night. Oregon didn’t lack for baserunners, putting at least one man on in all but two innings. But the Ducks hit 1-for-15 with runners on base, and 0-for-9 with runners in scoring position. “(Coleman) was a three-pitch mix up to 94 miles per hour, with a breaking ball and a changeup for a strike any time he wanted to,” UO coach Mark Wasikowski said. “It was a Friday night performance out of the young man. You really do tip your cap to him.” The two teams will play again Monday at 7 p.m. for the right to face Tennessee in the Super Regional round.
