LOS ANGELES – Jeff Gold allowed just one run in six innings to lead Oregon to a 4-1 win over UCLA on Saturday night at Jackie Robinson Stadium in Pac-12 Conference action and in the process moved into a tie for first on the all-time wins list for the Ducks.
Gold won his 23rd career game to tie Alex Keudell (2009-12) for the most wins in the history of the Oregon baseball program. The senior moved to 10-1 on the season, with the 10 wins ranking third on the single-season wins list.
Gold got all the help he would need early in the game as the Ducks scored one run in the first and two more runs in the third. Tyler Baumgartner tripled to right center with one out in the first and came in to score on an infield RBI hit by Kyle Garlick to give UO a 1-0 lead.
UCLA (23-28-1, 10-16 Pac-12) got its only run of the game when Shane Zeile hit a solo home run off Gold in the sixth.
Four Ducks relievers combined to throw three scoreless innings of relief with Jake Reed picking up his 13th save after getting the last three outs.
Garlick went 2-for-4 with two RBI to lead the Ducks (39-16, 16-10 Pac-12), while Baumgartner was 2-for-5 with a run scored and a RBI.
Oregon, who won its first Pac-12 road series of the season with the victory, wraps up the three-game series with UCLA on Sunday. First pitch is at 12:05 p.m. and the game will be televised on the Pac-12 Networks.
