EUGENE - The No. 14 University of Oregon softball team (30-9, 8-5) topped Portland State, 10-4, to open Wednesday's doubleheader at Howe Field.

UO scored one run in the first innings, two in the second, one in the third and six in the fifth inning en route to its seventh double-digit run tally of the season.

In contrast, PSU scored one run in the first inning, two in the fifth and a final run in the sixth inning.

For the game, six Ducks hit safely, and four had multiple hits – Howard (2-for-3, 2 RBI, walk), Takeda (2-for-4, 2 RBI), Kelsey Chambers (2-for-4, 3 RBI) and Peterson (2-for-3, 2 RBI).

Howard's pair of doubles tied the team season high and raised her season total to 10, one shy of Chambers' team-best total.

PSU’s Alicia Fine (2-for-3) was the lone Viking with multiple hits, and four others had single hits.

Viking starter Raya Johnson (2-6) struck out five, walked seven, gave up 10 hits, and nine of her 10 runs allowed were earned in the complete game.

Oregon freshman Karissa Hovinga (9-3) struck out two, walked two, allowed six hits, and three of her four runs allowed were earned in her eighth complete game of the season.
