EUGENE, Ore. - Oregon pitcher Cheridan Hawkins threw a no-hitter Saturday as the Ducks thumped the visiting Arizona Wildcats 8-0 in five innings.
The freshman struck out seven of the first eight batters she faced. She walked one and hit two. The sixth-ranked Ducks (35-6, 12-2 Pac-12) scored three times in the third inning and once in the fourth. Their four-run rally in the fifth ended the game early.
The UA (27-16, 4-7 Pac-12) will try to avoid a sweep when the teams play today at noon on TV (Pac-12 Arizona).
