Karaviotis gets first hit of game for Ducks, looking for an NCAA regional host nod
May 23, 2014 - Robert Collias
Mark Karaviotis, a 2013 Maui High graduate, smacked the first hit of the game for his 15th-ranked University of Oregon baseball team in the fifth inning against Cal tonight in Eugene.
Karaviotis' two-run single made the score 3-0, moments after a successful suicide squeeze bunt. In the top of the sixth, Karaviotis — the Ducks' starting shortstop all season long after being drafted in the 39th round last year by the Arizona Diamondbacks — started a 6-4-3 inning-ending double play.
He's a semifinalist for the Brooke Wallace Award goes to the nation's best shortstop — Karaviotis recently made the cut to 35 on the list.
Oregon (42-16, 18-10 Pac-12) won 5-1 coming off a 6-2 win over No. 1 Oregon State on Tuesday.
The Ducks feel they still have a shot at being one of 16 NCAA regional hosts next weekend.
We have a Karaviotis story in the works for next week, taking a close look at his breakout freshman season.
