Oregon baseball begins a six-game road trip when it visits Portland Tuesday night at 5 p.m.
The Ducks (7-2) have won six straight games against West Coast Conference schools as they visit the Pilots (8-4) before heading to Hawaii (6-5) for a four-game series starting Thursday.
“It is always tougher on the road and Portland has been tough on us,” Oregon coach George Horton said.
Portland won three of four games earlier this season at Hawaii and split a four-game series at Stephen F. Austin last week.
The Ducks swept three-game series’ at home the last two weekends against Saint Mary’s and Loyola Marymount. Oregon outscored the Lions 17-9 last week and rallied from a one-run deficit with two runs in the bottom of seventh for a 7-6 win in the finale on Sunday.
“It is real encouraging, we played very well,” UO shortstop Spencer Steer said. “We hit well and played good defense and we are pitching well so that is encouraging going into next week.”
Oregon will fly from Portland to Hawaii for a series that runs through Sunday. The Ducks will head to Oregon State for a nonconference game on Tuesday, March 12, before opening Pac-12 play at home against Washington on Friday, March 15.
