SANTA BARBARA, Calif. (AP) — Kevin Seitter threw a complete-game four-hitter and Oregon eliminated No. 14 national seed UC Santa Barbara with a 3-0 victory on Sunday night, winning the Santa Barbara Regional and earning a spot in the super regionals.

Oregon (40-18) took a 1-0 lead in the bottom of the first. Mason Neville walked to lead off the inning, took second base on a sacrifice bunt by Chase Meggers and scored on a single by Drew Smith.

The Ducks added a run in the fifth after No. 9 hitter Bryce Boettcher walked with two outs, moved to second on a wild pitch and scored on a single by Neville.

Oregon’s final tally came on a Jacob Walsh home run leading off the bottom of the seventh.

Seitter (8-4) surrendered four ground-ball singles, including two in the ninth to put runners at the corners and bring the tying run to the plate. He struck out Jonah Sebring swinging on a 2-2 pitch to end it. Seitter walked one, struck out six and hit three batters. He threw 128 pitches to lead the Ducks to their second straight super regional.
