Mitchell Tolman scored from first base on a Scott Heineman single to center field that Austin Pernell booted. Tolman, who started the rally with a two-out hit and moved to third on the hit by Heineman, scored when Pernell let the rolling ball get past him.
Heineman led Oregon going 3-for-6 at the plate, while Tolman was 2-for-5 with a RBI and a run scored. J.J. Altobelli reached base four times going 2-for-3 with a RBI and two walks. Brett Thomas was also 2-for-5 with one run scored and one RBI.
Garrett Cleavinger (6-0) picked up his second win of the series in helping the Ducks sweep Washington State (20-23, 7-14 Pac-12) for the first time in the modern era of Oregon baseball. Darrell Hunter pitched the 11th to get his first career save.
Tolman gave Oregon (37-11, 19-5 Pac-12) a 1-0 lead in the top of the first with a RBI double scoring Thomas, but Washington State got the run back on a Collin Slaybaugh RBI triple in the bottom of the first.
Oregon took the lead back with a run in the top of the second. Thomas doubled down the left field line scoring Josh Graham to put the Ducks in the lead. Oregon left the bases loaded when Ryon Healy fouled out to the first baseman to end the inning.
Yale Rosen tied the game in the bottom of the seventh with a leadoff home run off starter Jake Reed, who gave up just two runs on five hits with seven strikeouts in seven innings.
Oregon got the lead back in the top of the eighth with some help from the Cougars. Steven Packard led off and reached second when shortstop Ian Sagdal dropped a pop fly. Connor Hofmann moved pinch runner Desmond Santos to third with a sacrifice bunt and then Altobelli drove in the run with a ground ball to second.
Washington State forced the game into extra innings with a run in the ninth on Jimmie Sherfy's first blown save of the season. Sagdal delivered a one-out single that scored pinch runner Michael Monda.
