Ducks face elimination

Jordan Stephens pitched a complete-game two-hitter Saturday night to lead Rice to a 1-0 win against host Oregon in the NCAA Eugene baseball regional. Stephens struck out 11 and walked just two to move the Owls (43-17) within one game of the regional championship. Oregon (46-15), the No. 8 national seed and the top seed in the regional, must now win three games to advance and host a super regional. The Ducks will play San Francisco today in the double-elimination tournament. The winner will play Rice later in the day and the loser is out.
