EUGENE, Ore. -- Tyler Anderson scattered three hits over eight innings as the University of Oregon rode a four-run first to an efficient 5-0 win over Seattle University on a wet and cold Friday night at PK Park.

Oregon's southpaw starter improved to 3-1, striking out 11 Redhawks without issuing a walk in his second straight dominating start while running his scoreless inning streak to 16.

The Ducks (10-5) took advantage of a very shaky start by Seattle University right hander Blaine Jones (0-2), who issued five first-inning walks that led to four runs. Eddie Rodriguez started the UO offense with a two-run single and scored on a double by Steven Packard.

A ground ball by J.J. Altobelli brought in Packard before a two-out base on balls to Jett Hart chased Jones, who threw 46 pitches and allowed two hits in his 2/3 of an inning of work.

Reliever Brandon Kizer effectively shut down the Ducks the rest of the way, surrendering an unearned run on only two his over six innings, but Anderson had all the run support he needed to handle the Redhawks (2-9).

Joey Housey pitched a perfect ninth to preserved the Ducks' fifth straight victory and seventh in their last eight games.

The four hits in the game matched a season-low, but Oregon made up for that by drawing a season-high nine walks. Stephen Kaupang and Shawn Peterson had two walks apiece, and Jack Marder and Hart each had a hit and a walk.

Cullen Hendrickson, Nate Roberts and Phil Parrish accounted for SU's three base hits, all singles.

The two teams will play a doubleheader on Saturday, starting at 12 p.m. The first game will be nine innings and the second will be a seven-inning affair.

NOTES: The shutout was Oregon's second of 2010...Last year, UO's tenth win did not come until the 22nd game...Senior right handers Justin LaTempa (0-1, 1.69) and Zack Thornton (2-0, 3.63) are the scheduled starters for Saturday's twin bill...Friday's game was just the third home game of the season for the Ducks.
