The Oregon baseball team was in action Friday afternoon against UCSB. The game had been moved up from a 6:00 start to a 3:00 start. That was a good move as the weather was mild and there was no rain.
Oregon played a tremendous game today. Pitching was outstanding for Oregon and the fielding saved several runs from scoring. The Oregon bats took a few innings to get going but once they did, they hit lights out. Phil Craig St-Louis hit another towering home run. Catcher Tim Susnara made a great play at home base tagging out a UCSB runner and then threw out the runner at second base. The pitching for UCSB started out on a good note but the team went to multiple relief pitchers whom did not do very well. At least once, an Oregon base runner scored on a bases loaded walk.
This was a fun game for the fans. Oregon played well offensively, defensively, and on the mound. We’ll see if the team can perform as well over the weekend. I will be shooting the game on Sunday and I’m looking for more great photographic opportunities.
