NASHVILLE - Ryon Healy homered and drove in four, and Shaun Chase went yard and plated three, helping the University of Oregon continue its hot early season play with a 13-4 blowout of Belmont at Rose Park.
The win for the Ducks (4-1) was their fourth straight overall and third in a row while scoring 10 or more runs, a first since the program was reinstated prior to the 2009 season. The team's 4-1 start is also the best in UO's modern era.
Oregon scored multiple times in each of the first four innings and never looked back. Healy had run-producing hits in the opening two frames and capped his big day with a two-run shot in the eighth.
Chase doubled home Healy in the first and blasted his second home run of the season in the fourth on a towering shot to left that was never in doubt as soon as it left his bat.
Connor Hofmann also got in on the long ball parade for Oregon, cranking the first home run of his career in the third inning, staking the Ducks to an 8-1 lead.
Billy Flamion (1-0) earned his first collegiate victory by pitching 4 1/3 innings of one-hit relief, walking two and striking out two. The freshman's only blemish came on a 2-run homer by Drew Turner in the third.
David Wylie pitched the final three innings to earn his first save and finish off the night on the mound for the Ducks. Wylie surrendered one run on a solo homer to Jared Breen, leading off the eighth, but was stellar otherwise, allowing four hits and no walks while striking out three.
Left-hander Jordan Spencer lasted just 1 2/3 innings, allowing one run on one hit. The freshman ran into control problems in the second, walking a pair and hitting a batter. All told, he walked three and struck out one.
Belmont starter Matt Hamann (0-1) was gone after the fourth, allowing 10 runs - nine earned - on nine hits. He walked two and struck out six.
Hoffman, Brett Thomas and J.J. Altobelli also had multiple-hit games for the Ducks. The top five in UO's batting order all scored two runs apiece; including No. 2 hitter Aaron Payne, who despite going 0 for 2 was hit by a pitch three times.
Breen was one of six Bruins with a single hit and had a team-high two runs scored.
The Ducks begin a three-game series at No. 17 Vanderbilt on Friday at 4 p.m. CT (2 p.m. PT). Right-hander Alex Keudell is scheduled to pitch for Oregon against Vandy left-hander Kevin Ziomek.
