There are just a few more weeks of action before summer leagues across the country come to a close, but here are a few links to what the Oregon Ducks are currently up to.
Scott McGough and Tyler Anderson began play in the FISU World University Baseball Championships today with a 15-0 win over Sri Lanka that took just five innings. The Collegiate National Team is 12-2 this summer, and will be back on the diamond Sunday, when Team USA takes on Chinese Taipei inside Meiji Jingu Stadium (Tokyo, Japan) at 5 a.m. (EST).
