Beavs drop opener to Oregon

EUGENE, Ore. - Matt Boyd worked eight solid innings but lost a pitcher's duel to Tommy Thorpe Friday afternoon at PK Park as sixth-ranked Oregon State fell to No. 10 Oregon, 3-0.

Boyd scattered seven hits and three runs, all of which came in the game's first two innings. He walked three and struck out five but Oregon's Thorpe was better in his eight innings of work.

Thorpe held the Beavers to two hits while walking two and striking out seven. He was replaced in the ninth after walking Tyler Smith, and the Beavers loaded the bases on closer Jimmie Sherfy. Danny Hayes battled Sherfy to a 3-2 count before flying out to center, ending the game and giving the Oregon reliever his 20th save of the season.

Boyd, who allowed just two hits after the second inning, took the loss to drop to 10-3 on the year while Thorpe improved to 6-4.

The Beavers' (41-9 overall, 20-5 Pac-12 Conference) two hits belonged to Ryan Barnes and Andy Peterson, who each reached on infield singles.

Oregon (43-11, 20-5) posted three hits in the first, two of which stayed in the infield but a hard hit single by the game's third batter, Ryon Healy, netted the Ducks their first run. Scott Heineman closed out the inning's scoring with a groundout to first.

J.J. Altobelli blooped a single to center in the second, scoring leadoff hitter Nick Catalano, who had opened the inning with a double.
