Oregon wins twice to stay alive
OKLAHOMA CITY — Megan Kleist pitched a fivehitter Saturday night, striking out nine, and Gwen Svekis hit a two-run homer, powering the Ducks to a 4-1 victory over Louisiana State in an elimination game that kept them alive in the Women’s College World Series.
Earlier Saturday, Kleist escaped a bases-loaded jam in relief, and the Ducks held on to beat Baylor 7-4 in an elimination game.
