EUGENE, Ore. -- An embarrassing road loss to Baylor may prove to be a valuable lesson for Oregon.If the fourth-ranked Ducks want to meet their own lofty expectations, theyll have to earn it on the boards.Two days after losing by 17 points to the unranked Bears, Chris Boucher had 25 points and nine rebounds to lead Oregon to its 27th consecutive home victory, 76-54 over Valparaiso on Thursday night.Boucher was coming off a 12-point, two-rebound performance against Baylor.His activity allowed him to him to have the 25 points, Oregon coach Dana Altman said. He had no defensive rebounds the other night and we lost the rebounding battle by 11.Tonight we won it by 13, and that was the difference in the game.Jordan Bell added 15 points and seven rebounds for the Ducks (2-1), who took control early in the second half with an 11-4 run fueled by Bells eight points to open a 52-38 lead. Bell scored 12 points in the second half as Oregon shot 15 of 27 from the field.That was our goal, just to go inside, Bell said. Against Baylor we went 3 for 21 at the 3-point line, so we just wanted to go inside.Alec Peters led the Crusaders (3-1) with 24 points to become the schools second-leading career scorer. Tevonn Walker added 12 points.Valparaiso shot just 23.3 percent in the second half as Peters was its only starter to make more than half of his attempts. The Crusaders finished 4 of 21 from 3-point range.I think its pretty evident that we are not shooting the ball very well, Valparaiso coach Matt Lottich said, and to beat a team like Oregon youre going to have to hit shots from the outside.Backup freshman point guard Payton Pritchard had nine points and five assists for the Ducks, who led by as many as 25 points in the second half.Oregon had a 40-27 rebounding edge and blocked six shots.Altman said his teams size and rebounding ability should be what sets the Ducks apart.If youre not beating people on the boards, youre not taking advantage of your athleticism, he said. Our goal should be a plus-eight or -nine on those boards for the season, and if we do that, itll be really positive for our team.The Ducks played again without preseason All-America Dillon Brooks, who continues to recover from offseason foot surgery. Altman was noncommittal about the junior forwards availability for the Maui Jim Maui Invitational when Oregon opens play Monday against Georgetown.I dont know if hell play in Maui, Altman said, and if he does, it wont be very much.BIG PICTUREValparaiso: Coming off a 30-win season and deep run in the NIT, the Crusaders were held 28 points below their season average while shooting just 32.1 percent from the field against the Ducks.Oregon: The Ducks likely will slip in Mondays poll off their 66-49 loss at Baylor, but they may regain Brooks services while in Hawaii.POLL IMPLICATIONSDespite Thursday nights win, Oregons best-ever No. 4 ranking likely will take a hit after its 66-49 road loss to unranked Baylor on Tuesday.STAT OF THE NIGHTBoucher, who has scored in all 38 games hes played at Oregon, had 18 points by halftime and missed his career high by one.HIGHLIGHT REELThough not known for his ball-handling, the 6-foot-10 Boucher flashed some nifty moves when he picked off a cross-court pass, dodged a Crusader at mid-court, dipped inside another off the dribble and smoothly threw down a one-handed dunk in the first half to cap a 9-0 run.UP NEXTValparaiso plays Alabama on Monday in Las Vegas at the four-team MGM Grand Main Event. The Crusaders will face either BYU or Saint Louis on Wednesday before heading home.Oregon heads to Hawaii to play Georgetown on Monday in the first round of the Maui Jim Maui Invitational. The Ducks will face either No. 9 Wisconsin or Tennessee on Tuesday. Clearance Air Max 95 Uk .

BALTIMORE -- It was a wild half inning that had a little bit of everything -- three straight homers, a grand slam and eight runs before there was a single out. There was even a bit of mystery: Did Jason Hammel try to hit Matt Tuiasosopo with a pitch, and did the right-hander deserve to be ejected? Miguel Cabreras grand slam capped an eight-run fourth inning for the Detroit Tigers, who cruised past the Baltimore Orioles 10-3 Saturday to snap a four-game losing streak. Justin Verlander (7-4) allowed three runs and eight hits in seven innings to win his third straight start and improve to 8-0 lifetime against Baltimore. But his performance was secondary to that of the Detroit offence, which built a 9-1 lead in the pivotal fourth. After Victor Martinez opened the inning with a home run off Hammel, Jhonny Peralta followed with a shot to left and Alex Avila made it three in a row with a drive to centre. Hammels next pitch struck Tuiasosopo in the left shoulder, then ricocheted off the flap of his helmet. Home plate umpire Hunter Wendelstedt immediately tossed the right-hander from the game. Hammel, who had already issued three walks, argued the ejection. So did Orioles manager Buck Showalter. But the decision stood. "Im not going to make a big deal of it. I hit him with a slider," Hammel said. "Zero intent there to hit him. Obviously I give up three home runs, but Im not the guy that answers getting hit around with hitting somebody. Thats bush league if you ask me. It was a mistake. A slider that got away." Tuiasosopo wasnt so sure. "All I know is we hit three homers off him, then the first pitch is at my head," he said. "I wanted to try to go up there and hit a fourth one, but obviously I got hit." Showalter defended his pitcher, but acknowledged that the umpires were simply doing their job. "I understand what the umpires trying to do, but its very tough for them to judge intent," the manager said. "But Ive got a real biased opinion of it, and its pretty obvious to us there was nothing intentional about it." Crew chief Jerry Layne said, "In this particular situation, everythings kind of played into what this looks like. They claim there was no intent. Three home runs and a guy gets hit, youre an umpire, what do you do?" Interestingly, Tigers manager Jim Leyland didnt believe Hammel was aiming the pitch at TTuiasosopo.dddddddddddd "In my heart, I do not think he was throwing at him," Leyland said. Tuiasosopo dropped his bat after the pitch, looked briefly at Hammel and walked to first base. "I wasnt happy about it. He got thrown out, and so he got his," Tuiasosopo said. "Im just going to go to first base. What am I going to do? Charge the mound? Then I would get in trouble, too. He got thrown out and we ended up tagging them for more. " After Hammel (7-3) left, rookie T.J. McFarland was summoned from the Baltimore bullpen. Avsail Garcia singled, Omar Infante doubled in a run and Andy Dirks walked to load the bases for Cabrera, who delivered his fourth career grand slam. It was his 200th home run with the Tigers, tying him with Bill Freehan for ninth place on the teams career list. It was the first time the Orioles have ever given up four homers in an inning, according to STATS, Inc. Detroit had not hit four home runs in an inning since Sept. 10, 1986. Prince Fielder added a sixth-inning drive for the Tigers, whose five homers were a season high. J.J. Hardy hit two home runs for Baltimore, and Nate McLouth singled twice and stole a base. Hammel gave up five runs, five hits and three walks in three-plus innings. The three walks and three home runs were both season highs. "I did not have command today," Hammel said. "Obviously, very frustrated. Cost the bullpen a lot of innings." In his first time through the batting order, Hammel gave up two hits and walked three, but Detroit could only get one run -- when Martinez led off the second with a walk and scored on a two-out single by Tuiasosopo. Hardy opened the third with a homer to knot the score at 1. The deadlock didnt last long. On Hammels fifth pitch of the fourth inning, Martinez hit a drive inside the right field foul pole, and the rout was on. NOTES: Every Detroit starter had at least one hit. .. Cabrera has 17 homers and leads the majors with 65 RBIs. ... Kevin Gausman (0-2, 11.00 ERA) makes his third major league start Sunday for Baltimore in the finale of the three-game series. Rick Porcello (2-2, 5.29) will start for the Tigers. ... Detroits starting pitchers recorded 203 strikeouts in May, the third-highest total in a single month by a major league rotation since 1900. ... It was Hardys 10th career two-homer game. He came in mired in an 0-for-11 skid. ' ' '
