Arizona Baseball: Wildcats lose low scoring game to Oregon Ducks

Konner Wade went 6 2/3 innings on Friday in a loss to the Oregon Ducks - Harry How

Arizona failed to record its first conference win Friday night after only scoring one run in Eugene

It was a close one, but Arizona dropped the first game of the three-game series to Oregon 2-1.

Both teams recorded six hits on the night, but Oregon managed to score on a fielders choice in the 5th and a double in the 6th. That was all starter Jake Reed needed.

Arizona's big threat came in the sixth inning, when the Wildcats loaded the bases with no outs. Riley Moore had a lead off single, followed by a Johnny Field walk and a Brandon Dixon bunt single down the third base line.

Trent Gilbert came up with the huge opportunity, but grounded into a double play. It still tied the game at 1 at the time, but it could have been so much more.

Konner Wade went 6 2/3 innings on the night, giving up just 5 hits and 2 runs. Tyger Talley and Augey Bill recorded one out each, and Mathew Troupe the final two outs.

Jake Reed went 6 innings for the Ducks, with relievers Christian Jones and Jimmie Sherfy combining for three no-hit innings to close it out.

The Wildcats are still winless in PAC-12 play, dropping to 0-4 on the year. They continue to search for that first win on Saturday at PK Park at 2 PM. James Farris (3-2, 3.82 ERA) will take the mound for Arizona against Oregon's Tommy Thorpe (2-2, 3.72 ERA).
