The Cats got on the board in the first inning, when freshman Autumn Champion scored off of an error by Oregon's right fielder, Beth Boshovich.
Senior Lovie Jung and sophomore Jackie Coburn each hit solo home runs in the third inning to put the Cats up 3-0.
Jung scored off of an error by Oregon's shortstop in the sixth inning. To end the game, senior Lisha Ribellia singled to center field to score junior Mackenzie Vandergeest from third base.
