Even though I picked UCLA to sweep Cal, it is nice to see Cal win. Maybe now Kendall will move the Beavs into at least 4th in the PG poll. Maybe even third seeing as how Vandy has dropped two in a row.


i think it depends, if UCLA still wins the series 2-1 i think the only way the beavs move up is with a sweep, if both go 2-1 then not sure that is enough to drop ucla down a notch yet.... although with Vandy losing then maybe UCLA will stay put and OSU will leapfrog and vandy moves down

I missed this week due to circumstances beyond my control, and I am deeply disappointed, but I will be back next weekend for sure.

Day one
  • Oregon State 5, Arizona State 0. The reigning Pac-12 Pitcher of the Week, Matt Boyd (5-0) pitched a complete game 1-hit shutout, and the Beavers moved to 4-0 in conference play. Boyd faced two batters over the minimum, surrendering a leadoff hit in the 1st and keeping the Devils hitless for the rest of the game, striking out a career-high 11 and walking 3. He also benefitted from two double plays. Michael Conforto had 3 of the Beavers’ 9 hits, and Dylan Davis was 1 for 3 with 2 RBIs.
    OSU leads series 1-0.

  • California 5, UCLA 1. Cal scored 4 runs in the top of the 7th to break a 1-1 tie and defeat UCLA at Jackie Robinson Stadium in LA. At 4-0, Cal remains tied with OSU at the top of the conference standings. FR RHP Ryan Mason (4-0) pitched 8 innings, scattering 5 hits and allowing 1 run. UCLA’s Adam Plutko (2-1) took the loss after allowing 5 earned runs in 6.2 IP. Cal’s FR OF Brian Celsi was 2 for 4 with 2 RBIs, and FR CF Devin Pearson was 3 for 5 with 1 RBI.
    Cal leads series 1-0.

  • Oregon 2, Arizona 1. Konner Wade (2-2) pitched 6.2 innings and gave up only 5 hits and 2 runs, but Oregon’s Jake Reed (3-3) allowed 6 hits and only 1 run over 6.0 IP for the low-scoring one-run win in a pitching duel in Eugene. Riley Moore and Jordan Berger each had 2 hits for the Cats. Six Ducks had one hit. At 0-4, Arizona is in a three-way tie for last with Utah and Washington.
    Oregon leads series 1-0.

  • Stanford 6, Utah 4. Utah made it close by scoring 2 runs in the top of the 9th, and even had the tying runs in scoring position, but the Utes fell to 0-4 in conference play and below the .500 mark overall (9-10). Three Stanford players had three hits apiece, led by DH Justin Ringo who was 3 for 4 with 3 RBIs. Mark Appel (3-2) scattered 6 hits over 8 innings and surrendered 2 runs (1 earned).
    Stanford leads series 1-0.

  • USC 5, Washington 4. The Trojans jumped on JR RHP Nick Palewicz for 4 earned runs in the first inning and two-thirds, then held on when the Huskies scored three in the last two frames, and had the winning run at the plate in the 9th, only to come up a run short. Tyler Davis pitched 7.1 innings in long relief and limited the Trojans to 5 hits and 1 run. JR LHP Bob Wheatley pitched 8 innings in the winning effort. UW outhit USC 13-10, led by Trevor Mitsui and Ty Afenir with three apiece. Blake Lacey led the Trojans going 3 for 5 with 2 RBIs
    USC leads series 1-0.

  • Washington State 8, Brown 2. The Ivy League Bears outhit the Cougars 8-7 but couldn’t manufacture many runs. Joe Pistorese (3-1) gave up two runs, one earned, on seven hits, walked two, and struck out a career-high seven over seven innings. Wazzu’s Brett Jacobs was 1 for 3 with 3 RBIs. Fun notes: Washington State improved to 5-0 all-time against Ivy League schools. This was Wazzu’s first head-to-head meeting with Brown in any sport since the Cougars and Bears (then the Bruins) met in the 1916 Rose Bowl. (That was Wazzu’s first and only Rose Bowl win, 14-0.)
    Wazzu leads series 1-0.

Yeah, it beats me.. I guess if the defense and pitching is good, we always have a chance. Our catching position is weak, but I think as the season goes on things will settle down. I think we have a good chance at a top 3 finish.. I am hoping.

Day two
A second day of awesome pitching in Corvallis. Too bad the representative from Perfect Game was not there to see the almost perfect game.
  • Arizona State 4, Oregon State 0. Less than a day after Matt Boyd one-hits the Sun Devils, Ryan Kellogg one-ups him by no-hitting the Beavers. Kellogg had a perfect game going through 6.1 innings until Ryan Barnes reached first on a fielding error by the shortstop. The only other Beaver to reach base was Jake Rodriguez, thanks to a dropped fly ball to rightfield. Four Devils had two hits each, led by Jake Peaveyhouse, who also had 2 RBIs and a solo homer.
    Series tied 1-1.

  • UCLA 8, California 3. Trailing 2-1 after four innings, the Bruins put two crooked numbers on the scoreboard--three in the 5th and four in the 6th. Nick Vander Tuig went 7 innings an gave up no earned runs, although he did surrender a two-out homer to Nick Halamandaris in the 2nd. SS Pat Valaika led the Bruins going 3 for 5 with 5 RBIs. Jacob Wark was 3 for 4 for Cal.
    Series tied 1-1.

  • Oregon 5, Arizona 1. Ryon Healy hit a three-run home run and four Oregon pitchers combined to hold Arizona to just one run for the second straight day. Tommy Thorpe pitched 6.2 innings for the win, allowing 1 earned run on 6 hits. Oregon’s win puts them in a four-way tie for first at 4-1. Because UW and Utah both won today, this loss puts Arizona in sole possession of last place with a winless 0-5 record.
    Oregon leads series 2-0.

  • Utah 3, Stanford 2, (10 inn). Utah took a 2-0 lead in the 2nd inning on four consecutive walks by starter FR Bobby Zarubin and a two-out hit batter by reliever Marcus Brakeman. Stanford evened the score in the 7th on a walk, two singles, and a wild pitch. In the 10th, Utah’s Dallas Carroll led off with a single, and 1B Trey Nielsen doubled him home for the winning run. Luke West pitched 3.1 innings for the win, facing 11 batters and allowing 2 hits.
    Series tied 1-1.

  • Washington 3, USC 1. Junior Austin Voth (3-3) gave the Huskies eight strong innings, giving up one run on four hits. Right fielder Brian Wolfe drove in two runs for UW, including one on a solo homer.
    Series tied 1-1.

  • Washington State 14, Brown 0. The Cougars put five crooked numbers on the board in eight of the innings they batted and led the Brown Bears 9-0 after three innings. SO RHP Tanner Chleborad (from Rapid City, South Dakota) pitched seven-shutout innings. Six Cougars got 2 hits apiece and six others had one hit.
    Wazzu leads series 2-0.

Day three
  • Oregon State 4, Arizona State 3. How often do you see a one-run game end with a 2-5 caught-stealing play at third? After two excellent pitching performances from opposite teams on Friday and Saturday, the rubber game was a nail-biter for both sides with the bullpen deciding the outcome. Oregon State broke a 1-1 tie in the 4th inning with 3 runs on 1 hit and an error, but they left 3 runners on base when they could have nailed the coffin lid shut with a two-out hit. ASU came back to within 1 in the top of the 5th with 2 runs, the second one notoriously from a Dan Child bases-loaded walk on four pitches. But Max Engelbrekt, who found himself in precarious RISP situations in every inning he pitched, got the win going 3.1 IP while allowing 3 hits and 0 runs and walking 4. Trever Allen was 3 for 4, and Max Rossiter 2 for 3 with 1 RBI for the Devils. The Devils outhit the Beavers, for the second day in a row, 8-4.
    OSU wins series 2-1.

  • UCLA 10, California 2. After dropping the first game and making Cal look like conference contenders, UCLA righted its ship and won the next two games convincingly to win the series. SO RF Eric Filia led the Bruin offense with a 2 for 4, 3 RBI attack. SO LHP Grant Watson from Bakersfield pitched 7 innings for the win.
    UCLA wins series 2-1.

  • Oregon 7, Arizona 6. Trailing 7-3 entering the 9th, Arizona mounted a comeback, scoring 3 runs on 3 hits. They left the tying run at second. C Josh Graham was 2 for 3 with 3 RBIs for the Ducks. Trent Gilbert and Zach Gibbon were both 3 for 5 for Arizona. The Wildcats are winless in conference play and sit at the bottom of the standings. The Ducks are now tied for first with Oregon State and UCLA at 5-1.
    Oregon sweeps series 3-0.

  • Utah 7, Stanford 5. Sure, Stanford can handle top ten teams. It’s teams like Utah and Fresno State that give them problems. The Utes led from the first inning--on a single and back-to-back doubles to score one run--and never looked back. Trailing 7-1, Stanford tried to make a comeback in the bottom of the 8th, scoring 4 runs on 4 hits and an error. But it wasn’t enough. Utah 1B Trey Nielsen, who doubled in the winning run yesterday, was 1 for 5 with 3 RBIs and a homer today. Kody Davis and Braden Anderson were both 4 for 4 for the Utes. Justin Ringo was 3 for 5 with 1 RBI for the Cardinal. Stanford starter Dean McArdle lasted only 2.2 IP and took the loss. Utah’s FR RHP Dalton Carroll went 6.1 IP for the win.
    Utah wins series 2-1.

  • Washington 8, USC 3. In the bottom of the 6th, Washington extended their close 3-2 lead with 5 runs to win it going away. Three Husky pitchers went exactly 3 innings apiece, with middle reliever Zach Wright earning the win, yielding 2 hits and no runs. Washington outhit USC 16-10, with JR C Ryan Wiggins leading UW with a 3 for 5, 3 RBI performance. Trevor Mitsui and Joe Meggs also had three hits. James Roberts led the Trojans with a 4 for 5, 1 RBI effort.
    Washington wins series 2-1.

  • Washington State 20, Brown 1. The Cougars took their mild 2-0 lead after four innings and went nuclear on Brown pitching with 4 in the 5th, 6 in the 7th, and 8 in the 8th. SO RHP Scott Simon gave up 1 ER over 7 innings for the win. Jason Monda was 1 for 4 with a homer and 5 RBIs. Adam Nelubowich was 2 for 4 with 4 RBIs. PJ Jones was 3 for 3 with 1 RBI, on a solo homer. [These two teams play a fourth game tomorrow, which is not part of our prediction set.]
    Wazzu sweeps series 3-0.

it starts anew each week, after a few weeks usually start keeping track of average scores to see how well people are doing. broken up into two groups, those who have participated more than x # weeks and those who have participated less..... or here is an idea i just had, give them a 0 for each week they miss. just a suggestion I leave the decision up to DM since this is his baby

Cool, thanks Borg! It's pretty fun, but for me it's complete guessing. I try to keep up with the weekly scores of the games out west but I sure don't know much about the teams.

Huh? You mean this isn't a guessing game? Crap. Here I am throwing darts at names to see which teams to pick.

Hogfan, borgguy is correct. After a few weeks I'll start posting occasional total score averages. And because some people don't participate with enough regularity that their scores skew high or low, I have been creating a secondary pool for them, but I might automatically drop everyone's two lowest scores by the end of the season and people who miss a week (or two) will have those zeroes dropped. Anything over two missed weeks, and you have to swallow that zero.

WildCard, congrats on wining the week 2 picks. Bittersweet, though, huh? This coming weekend should be more fun. Heheh.

Rowdy, hang in there. I have noticed that a fan base's numbers usually go up or down with their team, because people want their team to win and often pick them. So don't get too upset because I think the Wildcats' fortunes will reverse soon. Funny thing is how poorly RiverDuck is doing, considering the Ducks' success.
