2012 College World Series: Oregon Eliminated In 3-2 Loss To Kent State

The Oregon Ducks lost by a score of 3-2 to Kent State Monday night, dropping 2 of 3 in the Eugene Super Regional. The loss ends their run before they could reach the 2012 College World Series.

Kent State struck first, scoring a run each in the first and second. Oregon was taking no chances, pulling starting pitcher Jeff Gold after just 1.2 innings. The bullpen kept things under control long enough for the Ducks offense to tie the game at two courtesy of a two RBI single from Ryon Healy in the eighth inning. Jimmie Sherfy couldn't keep things under control, though, as the Flashes came back in the bottom of the ninth. Derek Toadvine reached on a walk, advanced on a groundout, and came home on an RBI double by shortstop Jimmy Rider.

The Ducks were able to force the Game 3, but Kent State came back from the Game 2 upset and ended the Ducks' run in the 2012 NCAA Division I Playoffs. A full box score is available here. Kent State advances to the College World Series and will play Baylor or Arkansas, depending on who wins the Waco Super Regional.
