Brooke Yanez started on the mound for the Ducks, with her ERA creeping over 2.00 for the first time all season. She struck out the side in the first inning, but allowed a solo home run with two outs as the Cardinal took a 1-0 lead.
Haley Cruse beat out an infield single to lead off the Ducks' first half of the first. Hanna Delgado followed with what appeared to be another infield single, but was called out for being out of the batter's box. Allee Bunker followed with yet another infield single, but was also called out for being out of the batter's box.
Oregon threatened in the second with a walk and a single but left two stranded. Yanez walked a batter in each the second and the third, but escaped both innings unscathed.
The Cardinal collected back-to-back singles in the fourth, but Yanez recorded two strikeouts to hold the deficit at 1-0. The Ducks, meanwhile, went down quietly in the third and fourth.
