Day one

Oregon State 1, Stanford 0: The Beavers scored the game's only run in the top of the first. Michael Miller, who went 3 for 5, singled to lead off. After three more batters, Miller stood at second and Jared Norris, issued a walk, stood at first, with two outs. Freshman Kavin Keyes, who should be a high school senior this year but who has hit safely in every Pac-10 game Oregon State has played this year, rapped an 0-2 single up the middle to score Miller. Sam Gaviglio (7-1) pitched eight full innings for the win. Mark Appel went 6.2 IP for the loss. Freshman Tony Bryant struck out all three batters he faced in the 9th for the save.


Oregon State leads series 1-0.


Arizona 5, UCLA 4: Gerrit Cole (4-4) gave up five earned runs over 8 innings and lost to the Wildcats. Kurt Heyer (7-1) went 7.1 IP and gave up 4 ERs for the win. Jeff Gelalich led the Bruins at the plate, going 2 for 3 with 3 RBIs. Arizona CF Joey Rickard went 1 for 4 with 4 RBIs (a ground out and a three-run homer).


Arizona leads series 1-0.


Arizona State 3, Washington State 1: Wazzu southpaw Adam Conley (4-5) did all the pitching for the Cougs, going a full eight innings and yielding only one earned run, but he took the loss after a fielding error by 2B Tommy Richards allowed two unearned runs to score. Derek Jones went 3 for 4 for Wazzu. The Devils had three players with 2 hits apiece, led by DH Xorge Carrillo who went 2 for 3 with ASU's sole RBI.


Arizona State leads series 1-0.


Oregon 4, USC 2: The Trojans scored two unearned runs in the 2nd on a two-out Kevin Swift single. The Ducks tied in the 3rd when Danny Pulfer doubled in two. Oregon took the lead in the 8th on Stefan Sabol's one-out homer and tacked on another in the 9th on Brett Thomas's two-out double. Tyler Anderson pitched 8.1 innings for the Ducks to earn the win.


Oregon leads series 1-0.


Cal 6, Washington 2: This game was scoreless for four innings and tied 1-1 until the 7th when Cal scored two and another three in the eighth. The Huskies scratched a run in the 9th on a single, double, and single. Erik Johnson went 6.2 IP for the win.


Cal leads series 1-0.

Day two

Oregon State 8, Stanford 1: The Beavers struck for two in the 1st and never looked back. They tacked on another run in the 3rd and three more in the 4th before Stanford finally got on the board for the first time this weekend with a single run in the bottom of the 7th. Kavin Keyes, the would-be high school senior DH for the Beavs, got three base hits and two RBIs on the first three pitches he saw. He also walked in his last two appearances for a perfect 1.000 OBP. Light-hitting second baseman Tyler Smith also finished with three hits and an RBI for Oregon State. Josh Osich (5-0) got the win, with Matt Boyd earning his fourth save. Jordan Pries (4-3) took the loss for Stanford.


Oregon State leads series 2-0.


UCLA 4, Arizona 0: Trevor Bauer handcuffed the Wildcats, limiting them to four hits and no runs en route to his seventh win (7-1). Bauer pitched a complete game with 13 strikeouts to one walk and one HBP. Bruin catcher Steve Rodriguez went 3 for 4 with one RBI to lead UCLA. Cole Frenzel of North Dakota went 2 for 4, leading the Wildcats.


Series tied 1-1.


Arizona State 8, Washington State 2: Wazzu starter Chad Arnold only lasted 3.1 innings, allowing seven earned runs, and ASU rolled the Cougs again. The Devils broke a 1-1 tie in the 3rd, scoring three, and another three the next inning. The Cougar bullpen limited ASU to 4 hits and 1 run in relief of Arnold, but the Wazzu bats couldn't erase the run deficit.


Arizona State leads series 2-0.


USC 9, Oregon 2: USC's Austin Wood (3-5) went 6.1 innings and gave up one run to earn the win. Oregon's Madison Boer (2-2) pitched 5.2 and gave up three runs for the loss. The Trojans broke the game open in the 8th scoring 6 on two hits and one error. (Side note: If you are listening to the Duck games on the radio, it sounds like there must be a lot of Duck U alums in LA, because the cheering for Oregon seems much louder, even in a losing cause, than the cheering for the Trojans.)


Series tied 1-1.


Cal 8, Washington 2: The Huskies scored in the 1st on a walk, a double, and a single, to take a 2-0 lead, but that's all they could muster over nine. Meanwhile Cal scored five in the 3rd then tacked on two more in the 7th and one in the 9th to take game two. Shaggy-haired Justin Jones (5-2) got the win. Cal second baseman Tony Renda led the Bears at the plate, going 3 for 4 with 3 RBIs.


Cal leads series 2-0.

OregonStateChris,
If I were in your shoes, I would be OK with a sweep also. After the single game thrashing your Beavers took at the hands of UA, they most definitely came out motivated and are now serving notice to the rest of the Pac and the nation.

Tell ya what. I knew the Beavs had a good D this year. "Watching" them play the first of the year, I had hopes their bats would step up. They have. The Beavs are playing relativeely error free ball. The bullpen is looking top notch. I am totally surprised (And extremely pleased) by this team. we are 5 wins away from our win total last year (4 if we win today) and 4 wins from our conference wins from last year. AND there are still 20 games left in the season. Wow. Just freaking wow.

Day three:

Oregon State 6, Stanford 4: The Cardinal scored twice in the 1st on freshman starter Scott Schultz, who settled down and put in 4.2 IP. Oregon State scored three in the 3rd on a couple of singles and a couple of walks. In the 7th, with two out and two in scoring position, Stanford decided to pitch to Kavin Keyes, who has torched Cardinal pitching all weekend, and he ripped another 2 RBI single into right field. Heading into the 9th with a 6-2 lead, freshman Ben Wetzler got the first two batters out before walking Ben Clowe and yielding a double to Brian Ragira. Reliever Tony Bryant replaced Wetzler and got two strikes on the next two batters, who both singled to score two. With two on and the winning run at the plate, Bryant got Jake Stewart swinging to end the game and complete the sweep, the Beavers' second in a row. Wetzler (5-1) got the win, Bryant got the save (5th); Stanford's Dean McArdle (2.1 IP) took the loss. Kavin Keyes, with a 14-game hitting streak, again led the Beavers at the plate going 2 for 5 with 3 RBIs.


Oregon State sweeps series 3-0.


UCLA 8, Arizona 5: UCLA scored one in the 1st, but Arizona tied it in the 2nd and tacked on two more in the 3rd. UCLA made it 3-2 in the 5th. trailing 5-3 entering the 7th, the Bruins plated two more to tie it 5-5. Pitching in the bottom of the 8th, Arizona releiver Matt Chaffee loaded the bases with two walks and a hit batsman. Beau Amaral doubled all three in for the winning runs.


UCLA wins series 2-1.


Arizona State 10, Washington State 4: Arizona State overpowers Washington State for a third straight game. Every Devil in the lineup had at least one hit, and four had multiple hits: Joey DeMichele (3 for 5, 1 RBI), Matt Newman and Andrew Aplin (both 2 for 4, 2 RBIs), and Riccio Torrez (2 for 5, 1 RBI). Wazzu committed 3 errors.


Arizona State sweeps series 3-0.


USC 3, Oregon 1: Oregon scored first, in the 3rd, with a double and a single. USC tied it in the 4th on Joe De Pinto's triple and a sac fly. The game remained tied 1-1 until the 8th, when USC scored two on a walk, a double, and a sac fly. Oregonian Logan Odom surrendered one run over 7.2 innings, but Chad Smith, who faced two batters, got the win for USC. Kellen Moen pitched one inning for the Ducks and took the loss.


USC wins series 2-1.


Cal 4, Washington 3: Dixon Anderson allowed a single in the 3rd and that was all until the 8th, when he surrendered back-to-back singles and a walk to load the bases with nobody out, and he was out of the game. A third single scored one, and a GIDP scored a second run, but the Huskies stranded the tying run on third. With the score 3-2 in the 9th, Cal's Marcus Semien homered to left for a huge insurance run. The Huskies scored one in the bottom of the 9th on a single and a double. With the tying run 90 feet away, the winning run on second, and two out, Matt Flemer struck out Reggie Jones to end the game, and the Golden Bears sweep the Huskies in Seattle.


Cal sweeps series 3-0.

Oregon State took away my perfect weekend. I'm okay with that though. I thought they could sweep the Cardinal and almost predicted it but I thought somehow Stanford would squeak out a win.

Good stuff DM. Looks like I may need to take a few risks next week to get back in the ballgame.
