Aaron West retired 13 batters in a row in one stretch and pitched six innings to lead Washington to an 8-3 win over 17th-ranked Oregon on Friday at Husky Ballpark in the Pac-12 baseball opener for both schools.

West (3-1), a junior from Snohomish, allowed all three runs on five hits with no walks and three strikeouts as the Huskies improved to 11-6 overall.

Oregon (12-4, 0-1) pitcher Alex Keudell retired the first nine Huskies before Jayce Ray's leadoff double keyed a three-run UW fourth. Washington's three-run seventh was capped by Ryan Wiggins' two-run, pinch-hit homer.

The series concludes Saturday with a noon doubleheader.
