FRESNO, Calif. - The No. 8 University of Oregon softball team (21-4) capped play in the Fresno State Classic with a 4-2 win over St. Mary's (4-13) Saturday afternoon.

The Ducks staked their 20th win all-time vs. the Gaels, thanks to their single runs in the first, second, fourth and sixth innings.

St. Mary staked an early lead with a run in the top of the first inning, and scored once more in the fifth inning.

The Ducks' opening three hitters all rapped multiple hits - junior shortstop Courtney Ceo (2-for-4), sophomore center fielder Janie Takeda (3-for-4, 1 RBI) and senior second baseman Kaylan Howard (2-for-3, 2 RBI).

In the first inning, freshman third baseman Koral Costa knocked in her second game-winning RBI of the season, thanks to her bases-loaded walk.

Takeda knocked in the next run in the second inning on a single, as did Howard in both the fourth and sixth innings.

Four other Ducks hit safely once.

In her sixth start of the campaign, sophomore Karissa Hovinga pitched 3.1 innings, struck out one, walked none, gave up six hits, and her run allowed was earned.

Freshman Cheridan Hawkins (7-1) relieved her in the fourth inning, and in her 3.2 innings, logged five strikeouts, no walks, two hits, and her run allowed was earned.

For St. Mary's, Sarah Lira (0-5) pitched all six innings, struck out one, walked two, allowed 11 hits, and two of her four runs allowed were earned.

Three Gaels had multi-hits - Brittany Sabatini (2-for-4), Megan Smith (2-for-3, RBI) and Andrea Hazel (2-for-3).

Earlier in the weekend, UO beat returning Mountain West champion San Diego State (3-2) on Friday, and lost to Iowa State (2-1) on Saturday.

Oregon was also slated to play host Fresno State Friday night, but after taking a 5-1 lead into the bottom of the second, an hour rain delay led to the contest being cancelled.

Overall for the three completed games, Takeda led UO in batting (.636), hits (7) and stolen bases (2).

Ceo also eclipsed .500 for the trip (.545, 6H, RBI, SB), and three others also topped .300 - Howard (.375, 3H, 2 BB, 3 RBI), Lindvall (.333, 2H) and junior catcher Alexa Peterson (.333, 2H).

Howard also made her debut on the Duck all-time career RBI list (10th, 117), and tied former great Kathy Stahl.

In the circle, senior Jessica Moore (1-1) led the team in ERA (1.40), innings (10) and strikeouts (7).

UO's other pitching stats follow: Hovinga (2.10, 0-0, 3.1 IP, 1 SO, 6H, 1 ER), Hawkins (3.15, 1-0, 6.2 IP, 6 SO, 3 BB, 4H, 3 ER).

Looking ahead, UO returns to Eugene for its home opener Wednesday vs. New Mexico. The doubleheader starts at 2 p.m. at Howe Field, and various St. Patrick's Day promotions will be held.

Like any Duck softball doubleheader, fans only have to pay single-game ticket prices for the two games.
