Oregon scored two runs in the bottom of the ninth inning and the Ducks rallied to beat Austin Peay 6-5 on Friday night in the Eugene Regional. Aaron Payne scored the winning run on a bases-loaded hit by Kyle Garlick that third baseman Greg Bachman couldn't handle for the Governors' third error of the game. The Ducks (43-17) tied it earlier in the inning when Brett Thomas chopped a single back to pitcher Tyler Rogers. The Austin Peay (38-23) closer attempted to tag Oregon's J.J.

They took the lead in the eighth on Cody Hudson's sacrifice fly.
