Yeah, and I will just throw back everything you would normally say.. midweek game, etc, etc. Checking the RPI did not do much damage. Dropped us one to 8. It is the same old story OM. Any team can beat any other team any day of the week. 34-11 is still pretty good. Losing this game probably does more to the team than winning IMO in a positive way. You guys got beat by San Francisco this year, and if I remember correctly you lost to seattle last year. We still have a better record than OSU in the last 15 games. Including a win over yours truly.



It did have some damage RD. It dropped your RPI at 8, thus risking your national seed. You'd still have your regional at Eugene, but put at big risk the home field advantage IF you made it to the Supers.

Kendall still has us slotted at 8, even after the split in Seattle. Go to boydsworld and check out the needs list it tells what each team needs to do to finish in 8,16,45 and so forth. So we have 5 home and ten road.. In order to stay in the top 8 in rip we only need 3 home wins and 6 away wins to do it. If you guys win the rest of your home games, you could lose 6 of 7 away and still make top 8rpi.

Loving it that they are finally showing you guys on ESPN. Been watching Oregon a lot on the PAC12 Network so it will be nice to see some of the other teams.

Day one
  • Oregon State 6, Cal 1. Matt Boyd (9-2) struck out a career-high 12 en route to his 9th win of the season in an 8.1 IP outing. Boyd gave up 3 hits, 1 walk, 2 HBP, and one run. Ryan Barnes was 1 for 3 with a two-out bases-clearing 3 RBI double in the 3rd to lead the Beavs. Kavin Keyes and Danny Hayes had two hits apiece for OSU. Long-haired DH Devon Rodriguez was 2 for 4 for Cal, accounting for the Bears’ only run, a solo homer off Boyd in the 7th. Dodger Matt attends tomorrow’s game with a friend, thanks to the generosity of Beaver Bob, so games updates will be slow in coming. The 3,180 in attendance was the third-largest crowd at Goss Stadium.
    Oregon State leads series 1-0.

  • Oregon 5, Washington State 3. An error by SS Ian Sagdal gave the Ducks the victory when a sharply hit grounder got past him and scored the go-ahead run in the 9th inning, and another error in left field scored another unearned Duck run as Oregon broke a 3-3 tie in the 9th to win game one. JD Leckenby from Buhl, Idaho, was the hard-luck losing pitcher who gave up two unearned runs over 2.2 innings pitched. Brett Thomas was 4 for 5 for the Ducks, and Mitchell Tolman drove in 3 runs.
    Oregon leads series 1-0.

  • Stanford 5, Arizona State 3. ASU’s Trevor Williams allowed all five of Stanford’s runs over 6 innings. Stanford’s Mark Appel gave up 3 (2 earned) over 7.2 IP. Austin Wilson led the Cardinal at the plate going 2 for 4 with 2 RBIs. Trever Allen was 1 for 3 with 2 RBIs for ASU.
    Stanford leads series 1-0.

  • Washington 23, Arizona 1. Just wow. Biggest AZ-whupping this year. The Huskies finished with 30 hits, led by DH Robert Pehl, who was 4 for 6 with 5 RBIs. Nine Huskies had multiple hits, and six had multiple RBIs. So RHP Jared Fisher pitched 8 full innings and gave up only one earned run for the win, and the Wildcats reminded everyone that even the defending national champions can really suck occasionally.
    Washington leads series 1-0.

  • UCLA 5, Utah 2. Adam Plutko notched his xxx win, going 7 innings and yielding only 2 runs and 7 hits. Utah even the score at 2 in the top of the 3rd, but the Bruins jumped ahead for good in the bottom of that frame. Eric Filia was 1 for 4 wit 2 RBIs for the Bruins. JR CF Braden Anderson was 2 for 4 with 2 RBIs for the Utes.
    UCLA leads series 1-0.

  • USC 9, TCU 3. Missed yesterday’s game. (Oops!) Anyway, the Trojans evened the series by scoring 8 runs in the 5th inning to come from behind 2-0, then tacked on a ninth run i the 8th for the final score. Garrett Stubbs was 1 for 3 with 2 RBIs for the Trojans. FR LF Boomer White was 2 for 3 with 2 RBIs for the Frogs.
    Series tied 1-1.

Gotta wonder if this is the biggest thumping ever of Arizona.

Standings after friday: Lots of bunching around the middle but LSU_Blake and UOSportsGuy are at the top with 30 points possible (a Tiger and a Duck, oh my). BeaverBeliever has an astrisk because his picks came after game one of usc tcu but havent heard a ruling from DM so will count his scores sounds like nobody knew that game was thursday, and it doesnt seem to have helped his score as he is sadly in the basement. If your score is 28 - 8 or higher (so if you are Tied for 4th or higher) you still have a shot at a perfect week, as you were the only ones to predict that BOTH the arizona schools would lose at least one game. without further ado:

T1)LSU_Blake 30 7
UOsportsguy 30 7

3)WildCard85 28 9

T4)JCR 28 8
BeaverBob 28 8
OregonG20 28 8
Hogfan4life 28 8
OpihiMan 28 8
YellowLabOSU 28 8

T10)Riverduck 28 5
SouthernBeaver 28 5

T12)Borgguy 27 7
Beaverstate69 27 7
DodgerMatt 27 7
Rowdy 27 7

16)ASU74 27 4

17)Florida Beaver 25 8

I Use DMs point system which is as follows
if you pick 3-0
Result
3-0: 6 points
2-1: 3
1-2: 1
0-3: 0

if you pick 2-1
Result
3-0: 3 points
2-1: 4
1-2: 2
0-3: 1


And then I run through everyones picks and figure out what is the maximum points you can get based on the results thus far, and what is the fewest points. the first number next to your name is most, second is fewest. And in case of a tie for most points I give the tiebreaker to whoever has the higher fewest points possible.
as you can see there is high reward for picking a sweep as you can get a ton of points (just look at last week) conversely there is high risk as well, as if they get swept you get zip zero zilch.
A good example would be the Arizona series. *I* picked Arizona to sweep washington, but the best they can do now is win 2-1 (havent looked at score for todays game yet) so the most points I can get would be 3 for a 2-1 win. YOU picked arizona to win 2-1 so you could still possibly get a full 4 points out of this series should they win 2-1.

I enjoy the PAC-12 games. Ive always had a soft spot for the Washington Huskies for some reason (maybe its the purple and gold) and I was excited when I heard they were on the schedule. As an SEC homer I still think we have the best baseball, but your boys out on the west coast know how to play some ball themselves.

Watching the ASU-Stanford game. (It's already dark there! Love long Oregon summers!) Anyway, runners on second and third. Right-handed bater who's been raking them steps to the plate. Stanford decides to intentionally walk the guy. Catcher holds his hand off to the right. Pitcher throws it over the batter's box. Second pitch almost way too far over and high, almost to the backstop. So I was wondering: That pitchout is not going to be fast. LHP is not facing third. Batter is blocking catcher's view of runner on third. Pitch is going to be away from the plate. Why not steal home? Has this ever been tried?

Stanford pulls it out 9-8 in 11. I hate to see Stanford getting hot with the Beavs heading down to Palo Alto next week.

Day two
  • Oregon State 5, Cal 0. Andrew Moore (9-1) pitched a complete game, two-hit shutout as the Beavers took game two in front of 3053 sunburned fans, including Dodger Matt, Beaver Bob, OpihiMan, and Dick Day. Moore faced two over the minimum, as he walked one, hit another, and gave up two singles, but also benefitted from three OSU double plays. “Andrew was excellent today,” Oregon State head coach Pat Casey said, “and so was the cheering and game commentary from section 9, row 8.” Dylan Davis was 2 for 4 with 3 RBIs, and Andy Peterson was 3 for 5 and accounted for the other two RBIs.
    Oregon State leads series 2-0.

  • Oregon 6, Washington State 3. Cole Irvin (9-2) pitched 7.0 innings and scattered 6 hits and 3 runs (2 earned) for the win. JJ Altobelli was 3 for 4 with 1 RBI to lead the Ducks, and Ryon Healy blasted his 10th homer, a solo shot in the 1st.
    Oregon leads series 2-0.

  • Stanford 9, Arizona State 8. (11 innings) ASU held a 7-4 lead after 6 innings, but Stanford’s Austin Wilson blasted a two-out three-run homer in the 7th to tie it at 7and take the game into extra innings. FR Ryan Burr in the 11th got a 3-2 flyout, then walked the next three batters before allowing Brian Ragira to single in two on a 3-2 pitch. In the bottom of the 11th, ASU scored one and loaded the bases. With two out, Kasey Coffman hit the first pitch he saw to second baseman Danny Diekroger, who bobbled the ball but made the play at first to end the game and prevent the tying run from scoring.
    Stanford leads series 2-0.

  • Washington 2, Arizona 1. Washington continues to surprise by taking game two and clinching a series win over the defending national champions. Austin Voth (5-5) scattered 7 hits and 1 run over 7.2 innings for the win. Brian Wolfe was 2 for 4 with 1 RBI for the Huskies. Zach Gibbons was 2 for 3 for the Cats.
    Washington leads series 2-0.

  • UCLA 5, Utah 4. Nick Vander Tuig (8-3) allowed 6 hits and two runs over 6.2 innings to defeat the Utes for a second day. Pat Valaika was 2 for 3 with an RBI for the Bruins. TJ Bennett was 2 for 3 with 2 RBIs for Utah.
    UCLA leads series 2-0.

  • TCU 3, USC 0. The Trojans stranded five runners in scoring position and seven runners total. In the top of the sixth, USC starter Kyle Twomey hit Derek Odell, who began to charge the mound, and both benches cleared. Both Odell and Twomey were ejected from the game. USC brought the tying run to the plate in both the seventh and eight innings, but each time the Horned Frogs were able to turn an inning-ending double play.
    TCU wins series 2-1.

No doubt about Section 9, Row 8 folks. And, this smart and intelligent group of fans were rewarded with a great deal from Hero Sub Sandwiches.

Good to see you DM, your friend Dick, and Ophiman.
