■ Oregon completed the four game sweep of New Mexico St, yesterday with a 6-3 win.
New Mexico State (0-7) went up 1-0 in the second inning, but the Ducks (7-1) responded with four runs of their own in the bottom half of the frame. The Aggies couldn't get much going form that point on, scattering four hits before picking up two runs on two hits in the ninth. The Ducks added insurance runs in the seventh and eighth innings.
Oregon will play host to Portland at PK Park on Tuesday at 6 p.m.
