UO release – Oregon’s season ended Monday in the NCAA Championship tournament’s regional round, with Louisiana State scoring three times in the eighth inning to beat the Ducks in the seventh game of the Eugene Regional at PK Park, 9-8. A day after the Tigers won to force Monday’s deciding game of the regional, the Ducks rallied into the lead twice to put themselves in position to advance to Super Regionals. Oregon turned to closer Kolby Somers to start the seventh inning, and though he pitched around a two-out single in that frame, LSU turned a 7-6 deficit into a 9-7 lead that held up. Oregon’s first full season under head coach Mark Wasikowski ended with a 39-16 record, and the program’s first postseason appearance since 2015. “It’s really bitter and fresh right now,” Wasikowski said. “I’m so proud of the team I got to coach this year. Really disappointed it didn’t continue to go past this weekend.”
