Clayton, Paddon pitch Ducks past Pilots

  Porter Clayton allowed just two unearned runs on three hits in six innings.

PORTLAND, Ore. -- Porter Clayton and Trent Paddon combined to give Oregon the effort on the mound it needed at Portland on Wednesday in a 3-2 win.

With a depleted bullpen after a 12-inning loss to Oregon State on Tuesday, and a three-game series starting on Friday at Arizona State, the Ducks (35-14) didn’t have many arms to turn to against the Pilots (10-35).

Clayton (1-1) allowed just two unearned runs on three hits in six innings, while striking out two and walking four to pick up the win. Paddon allowed no runs on just three hits with three strikeouts over the past three innings to pick up his first career save.

Tyler Baumgartner gave the Ducks an early lead with a solo home run in the top of the first. It could have been worse for the Pilots, as Oregon left the bases loaded when A.J. Balta struck out looking to end the inning.

Portland answered with a pair of unearned runs in the bottom of the second. Clayton threw wildly on a pickoff attempt with two outs, allowing two runners to score to take a 2-1 lead.

Oregon jumped back in the lead with a run in the fifth and a run in the sixth. Shawn Chase scored the tying run on a wild pitch after leading off the fifth with a double. Baumgartner picked up his second RBI of the game with a sacrifice fly in the sixth scoring Kevin Minjares.

Kyle Garlick and Josh Graham led Oregon with two hits apiece.
