"All the way to the gate and here come the Ducks, the runners are circling the wagons. One run in, two run in, two run double for Janie Takeda."

The call is courtesy of GoDucks.com. Oregon Starting pitcher Cheridan Hawkins allowed just one run on two hits with 11 strikeouts. It was her 11th game of the year with double-digit strikeouts. The Ducks play today (Sunday) at 11am in the regional championship, the game time was moved due to weather. Oregon entered the tournament ranked first in the nation.
