The first of two nonconference Civil War games this season starts in an an hour. Some fun facts for Pac-12 and PNW baseball fans.
  • Oregon is Oregon State's third most common opponent in baseball and one of its closest.
  • The Beavers have played Washington State 419 times and have a 192-225 record against the Cougars. That's 33 games under, which would take a minimum or 11 years to even.
  • OSU's second most common opponent is Washington, at 417 games, a 228-187 record, or 41 games over, which would take the Huskies at least 14 years to even.
  • But in 312 games against the Ducks, Oregon State has a record of 160-152. Since the teams are playing about five games a year nowadays, two of them nonconference games, Oregon could even this series in just two years. The spread was 11 games just last year, so this is not as unlikely as it once seemed when Oregon reinstated baseball.
  • Since the Ducks were out of the game for 27 years, that was probably about 130 games that the two teams never played, which would have made these Civil War teams each other's most common opponents. As it stands now, if this trend continues, it would probably take another 53 to 54 years before Oregon overtakes Washington and Washington State as Oregon State's most common opponent: In 2066, when the two teams will play the 582nd Civil War baseball game.

I always like to listen to the radio announcer of the opposing team. Sometimes, trying to find Jerry Allen and the Ducks isn't easy on the radio. However, the Ducks can be found on 95.3 the score (streaming) and the beavers can be heard on 1240 Joe Radio (Streaming).

Sure glad I don't have a dog in this fight. Y'all have respect for each other and then go for the jugular. Best of luck to both teams.

Augh! It's worse than just the Okie State logo. Click OSU stats at the bottom and the header says "Oregon State Player Stats"; click the Box Score or the Play-by-Play, and it says "Oklahoma State".

Maybe when the Oregon Owls come to Corvallis, we can see if GameTracker will refer to them as the Oregon Tech Ducks. Fowl is fair, no?

Beavs up 2-0. Oregon Catcher Hambright drops ball on play to the plate. Going to be a good game.

Looks like they heard you DM. It appears to be fixed now.

The Pheenom is gone after 2-plus, with one on, three in, and Conforto at the plate.

Starr with four called strikeouts already. Gonna be a good day.

Reliever beans Conforto on the first pitch. Grrr.

Why would you call Spencer a Phenom? He has had one good game.. We are pretty thin when it comes to tuesday pitchers right now. Flamion is just as unproven. Well, who needs to intentional walk a guy.. lol

yeah, so are the umps. So much for home field advantage..I might have better things to do than watch this garbage. 5 runs, and the ump finally starts calling the same crap starr has been getting all night. This is one of the worst garbage games I have ever watched.. period. Hope you feel good about getting us when we are at our absolute worst. Hit batter, wild pitch, passed ball. Come On.. We are almost looking worst than the 10 game at pk. I still laugh when the beavs ran into each other.. Can't believe we beat you guys 4 times last year. Not going to happen this year.

Mike Parker: "Billy Flamion has not come in and put out any fires. In fact, with his name, it's no wonder he has added to them." Applause

RiverDuck, I know this game is probably not gonna be a lot of fun for you, but stick around.

After 2.5 innings: 6-0 Beavers.

Yeah, at your worst. I was wondering if this is really the same Ducks who swept ASU, or if this is a machiavellian George Horton evil plan to make us think the Ducks suck in nonconference games so that he can open a can of whoopass for the real games on the last weekend.
