Players get defensive in Civil War game
The Tuesday night tilt between No. 9 Oregon and No. 6 Oregon State on the diamond turned into a defensive clinic featuring a trifecta of noteworthy web gems. Oregon junior center fielder Connor Hofmann started it off, robbing Beavers infielder Jerad Casper of a base hit:
Then in the top of the fourth, Oregon State right fielder Dylan Davis flashes the leather, ranging into foul territory to make a sliding catch on a ball off the bat of J.J. Altobelli:
Not to be outdone, Ducks outfielder Brett Thomas makes a leaping catch up against the left field wall in the bottom half of the fifth, much to the dismay of Oregon State's Michael Conforto:
The Ducks would go on to win 6-3 behind a three-run rally in the top of the ninth.
