TEMPE, Ariz. - The No. 5 University of Oregon softball team (2-0) rolled to another impressive win with its 8-1 victory Friday afternoon over Stephen F. Austin (1-2).
In second-day action in the Kajikawa Classic, Duck sophomore third baseman Jamie Rae Sullivan paced the offense with a 3-for-3 afternoon and career high in hits and 3 RBI.
Sophomore center fielder Janie Takeda also rapped multiple hits (2-for-2), and six other Ducks hit safely once.
In the circle for UO, sophomore Karissa Hovinga (1-0) won her first start of the campaign. The returning All-Pac-12 Honorable Mention choice struck out four, walked one, allowed five hits, and her one run allowed was earned.
Freshman Cheridan Hawkins pitched the final three innings to earn her first collegiate save. The prep All-American struck out eight of the nine batters she faced, walked two and, allowed no hits or runs.
The Ducks struck for their first four runs in the second inning. Freshman catcher Janelle Lindvall scored first after she walked, stole second base, and scored on Sullivan's single and first game-winning RBI of her career. Takeda added an infield single, and senior right fielder Samantha Pappas and junior shortstop Courtney Ceo followed with one- and two-run singles.
In the third inning, junior first baseman Kailee Cuico led off with a single, and the pinch-runner scored on a double through the right side by Lindvall. The latter player scored three batters later on a sacrifice fly by Takeda.
Oregon's final runs came in the seventh on a two-run single by Sullivan, after Cuico and freshman left fielder Koral Costa opened the inning with a walk and double to left field.
SFU starter Angela White (0-2) pitched the complete game, struck out 10, walked four, allowed 11 hits, and all eight of her runs allowed were earned.
At the plate for the Lumberjacks, five players hit safely once.
SFA scored its only run in the third inning after three singles and a pair of walks off Hovinga. Pappas threw out another potential run at the plate to end the inning and strand two more runners.
For the remainder of the game, the Lumberjacks left one runner on base in three other innings.
Looking ahead, UO faces No. 14 Florida immediately after on Friday afternoon at the Tempe Sports Complex, then takes on No. 2 Oklahoma and San Jose State on Saturday, and Boise State on Sunday.
