Honolulu, HI- Oregon benefitted from its most prolific hitting night of the young season to soar past Hawaii 9-5, improving to 3-0.

Highly-touted freshman pitcher Cole Irvin paced the Ducks to victory with a seven-inning outing, allowing just three runs, striking out four. Irvin got off to a shaky start, giving up a run in the first, before a mound meeting with head coach George Horton settled him down. From there, the youngster retired 11 straight batters.

The Ducks got a a pair of four-hit outings from Aaron Payne and Ryon Healy. Payne, the second baseman and lead-off hitter, converted the four hits into three runs, while Healy, who had three doubles Saturday, knocked in three RBIs, including a ninth-inning home run.

Scott Heineman, Brett Thomas and J.J. Altobelli added two hits a piece.

The Ducks and Warriors play their fourth and final game of the series Monday at 3:05 p.m. PT.
