Jordan Dail's dominant weekend against California was rewarded Monday when the Oregon sophomore was named the Pac-12 softball pitcher of the week for the second time this month.
Dail held the Golden Bears scoreless over 20 2/3 innings during the three-game series. She allowed 13 hits and struck out 22. The left-hander threw back-to-back complete-game shutouts to lead the Ducks to the series win, and threw 6 2/3 shutout innings of relief in the finale.
She had 11 strikeouts in a 1-0 win on Thursday, including 10 with runners in scoring position. Dail surpassed 300 strikeouts for her career on Thursday and then exceeded 200 strikeouts on the season on Saturday.
Dail is second in the Pac-12 and 15th in the nation with 202 strikeouts and is one shy of cracking the UO single-season top-10 list with 11 games still to play in the regular season. She also leads the Pac-12 in innings pitched with 188 1/3 — 44 more than any other pitcher — and is also ranked first in games started (28) and appearances (34).
Dail and the Ducks will be back in action at Jane Sanders Stadium on Tuesday for a doubleheader against Portland State beginning at 4 p.m.
