SANTA BARBARA, Calif. - UC Santa Barbara baseball is suddenly struggling after a hot start to the year.
The Gauchos (6-4) dropped both games of a Saturday doubleheader at home against Oregon, with the bullpen again surrendering a late lead in the first game.
In the opener, UCSB wasted seven shutout innings from starter Michael McGreevy, who allowed only three hits and struck out nine.
The Gauchos led 4-0 in the eighth inning but the Ducks scored five unanswered in the final two frames en route to a 5-4 win.
Oregon crushed UCSB 17-2 in the second game. The Gauchos will look to avoid a four-game sweep on Sunday.
