EUGENE, Ore. -- Oregon baseball went 0-4 in its first set of games to open the season. 

The four-game stretch was capped off by an extra innings loss to Grand Canyon on Tuesday.

"I can tell you the mood and the attitude in the dugout from the starting game until the ending game," said head coach Mark Wasikowski. "By the ending game it was exactly what you wanted it to look like. By the starting game it wasn't what you wanted it to look like."

The Ducks also received productive at-bats from pitcher and designated hitter Kenyon Yovan.

Yovan led the team in batting average hitting .563 with two home runs and nine hits. 

Yovan struggled in his only appearance on the mound lasting 0.1 innings allowing one run, two hits and a pair of walks. 

"We had a lot of newcomers in our starting lineup," Yovan said. "It was good to see everyone out there and ready to play from the start. Like I said, it wasn't how we wanted to start it. But our team played really well. I'm excited to see where this goes forward."

It was Yovan's first in-game action since suffering an injury in last year's season opener. 

Oregon will hold its home opener at 4 p.m. on Friday at PK Park. It's the first game of three-game set against the Wolfpack.
