EUGENE, Ore. – Starting left-hander Ryan Kellogg allowed just three hits in a complete game to power No. 7 Sun Devil Baseball to a series win over No. 15 Oregon, 2-1, on Saturday at PK Park in Eugene, Ore.
Shortstop Colby Woodmansee broke a 1-1 tie in the top of the eighth with a RBI single to right field as the Sun Devils (15-6, 4-1) won their second straight Pac-12 series and their fifth consecutive game, and recorded their seventh win of the season over a ranked opponent.
Kellogg (4-0) struck out seven and permitted just five base runners in his third career complete game. He earned his fourth win of the season and the 23rd of his career, including his 10th win over a ranked opponent. He recorded a quality start for the 22nd time at ASU as he tallied six perfect innings in the win.
Kellogg set down the first five batters he faced in order before he conceded a double with two outs in the bottom of the second. He proceeded to retire the next 16 Ducks in a row before he issued a two-out walk in the seventh.
Woodmansee went 2-for-4 and leads the team with 11 multi-hit games this season, right fielder Trever Allen extended his hitting streak to 15 games and freshman second baseman Andrew Snow scored the eventual game-winning run in the eighth after he led off the frame with a single.
Both teams were held scoreless through the first four innings before the Sun Devils took a 1-0 lead in the top of the fifth on a balk from UO starting left-hander David Peterson. ASU first baseman Joey Bielek took a leadoff walk, moved to second on a sacrifice bunt and reached third on a fielder's choice before he scored the first run of the game on the balk.
The Ducks (14-8, 1-4) took a pair of two-out walks in the bottom of the seventh and left fielder Phil Craig-St. Louis capitalized with a RBI single up the middle to tie the game at one run apiece.
Snow led off the top of the eighth with a single, took second on a sacrifice bunt and came home on Woodmansee's second base hit of the game to give the Devils a 2-1 advantage.
Kellogg picked up his third career win in Oregon and has allowed three runs on five hits and two walks in 27 career innings in the state.
UO starting left-hander David Peterson (2-2) was chased with one out in the eighth and conceded two runs on three hits and a three walks, and struck out six in a loss.
ASU moved to 8-3 in 11 one-run games this season…Woodmansee now has a hit in 18 of ASU's 21 games this season, and has reached base in 20 of them and in 31 of his past 36 games.
