PROVO, Utah - BYU baseball (17-5, 4-2 WCC) will take on the visiting Oregon Ducks (12-9, 2-4 Pac-12) at Larry H. Miller Field on Tuesday, March 26, at 6 p.m. MT. 

The game will air live on BYUtv's digital apps and website or can be heard on BYU Radio and ESPN 960.

BYU vs. Oregon Game Notes

The game will mark the 10th meeting in series history with the Ducks holding a 6-3 lead overall. The two teams battled last year in Provo as well, with Oregon winning 9-6. The Cougars play nine games against four Pac-12 teams this season: one against Oregon, two against Cal, and three apiece against Utah and Washington. Under BYU head coach Mike Littlewood, BYU is 12-16 against the Pac-12. 

The Cougars are coming off a win against Utah Valley and a three-game sweep against West Coast Conference opponent Portland last week. The BYU pitching staff is 20th in the nation in team WHIP at 1.19 and ranked 24th in team ERA at 3.12. Last weekend, BYU held a Portland team averaging eight runs a game to just three total runs in the three-game series.

Redshirt freshman right-hander Ryan Brady will start against the Ducks. After starting two games and throwing 6.2 innings last season, Brady was injured and had Tommy John surgery. Tuesday’s appearance will be his second of the year after he made his initial return on March 19 at Utah Valley, throwing an inning and striking out two. 

The Cougars’ 17-5 record is the third-best mark through 22 games in program history behind a 20-2 record in 2016 and an 18-4 record in 1980. BYU is on a four-game win streak and has won 11 of its last 13 games.
