• Five Pac-12 teams are ranked in Baseball America’s top 25 poll: Arizona (4), Stanford (6), Oregon (16), UCLA (17) and Arizona State (21).

• Three Conference teams lead all Division I teams in major statistical categories: The No. 4 Wildcats have the highest batting average in the country through April 8 (.331), Washington is top-ranked in fielding percentage (.983) and Washington State leads the nation in double plays per game with 1.32 (37 double plays in 28 games).

• No. 21 Arizona State represents the West Coast as College Baseball Insider.com’s Regional Team of the Week after sweeping then-No. 20 Oregon State in Tempe. ASU junior shortstop Deven Marrero amassed four hits, two RBI, three runs, 12 assists and four putouts in the three-game series, earning him a spot on College Baseball 360’s Primetime Performers Honor Roll for Week Eight. Oregon sophomore outfielder and Pac-12 Player of the Week Brett Thomas earned the same honor for batting .636 (7-for-11) in three games against then-No. 5 UCLA last week, racking up two doubles, three runs scored, two RBI and two stolen bases as the then-No. 22 Ducks took two of three games from the Bruins in Los Angeles.

• Oregon sophomore Aaron Jones smacked two home runs against UCLA on Thursday, contributing to the Ducks’ 6-2 upset in the first game of the series. Pac-12 Pitcher of the Week Alex Keudell was on the mound for Oregon and hurled seven shutout innings to improve to 3-0 in his last three starts.

• Sun Devil RHP Brady Rodgers leads the Pac-12 with a 1.12 ERA, the 12th-best number among D-I pitchers. The junior improved to 5-1 after striking out six, walking one and giving up no earned runs over eight innings last Thursday. ASU’s staff ranks fourth nationally with a 2.62 ERA.

• USC senior RHP Andrew Triggs threw a complete game against California on Friday, striking out eight and allowing one run as the Trojans pulled off a two-run comeback in the ninth inning to defeat the Golden Bears, 2-1. USC also won Saturday’s contest in walk-off fashion after freshman catcher Garrett Stubbs drew a bases-loaded walk in the bottom of the ninth for the 3-2 win.

• Four Pac-12 teams rank in the top 20 for hits allowed per nine innings: Oregon (10th, 7.44), Washington (12th, 7.57), Arizona State (13th, 7.59) and UCLA (16th, 7.64).

Thanks for the compliment, but unwarranted. Cut & paste from the Pac 12 website, whereas DM's info is from his own research. Just wanted to pass on the info to everyone.

Pac 12 Player & Pitcher of the Week (Week 9)

WALNUT CREEK, Calif. — UCLA junior center fielder Beau Amaral has been named Pac-12 Player of the Week and OREGON senior right-handed pitcher Alex Keudell has been named Pac-12 Pitcher of the Week for April 9-15, Commissioner Larry Scott announced Monday.

Amaral went 9-for-18 (.500) with two triples, one double, six RBI and seven runs in UCLA’s four games against top-25 ranked teams last week, posting a .778 slugging percentage. The Huntington Beach, Calif., native went 2-for-3 with one run in a 4-2 win against then-No. 12 Cal State Fullerton on Tuesday. He also went 4-for-6 with two triples, four RBI and four runs in UCLA’s 15-3 win at then-No. 4 Arizona on Saturday. Amaral extended his hitting streak to a career-high 18 games on Sunday, going 2-for-5 with one double, two RBI and one run to help the then-No. 17 Bruins seal the series victory. His streak is the longest by a Bruin since Chris Jensen’s 18-game hitting streak in 2005.

This is Amaral’s third career Pac-12 Player of the Week honor and the 55th all-time selection for UCLA. Amaral has received the weekly honor twice this season, with the first coming on March 26.

Keudell struck out a season-best seven batters, allowed just one run on five hits and walked no one in Oregon’s 4-2 victory over then-No. 6 Stanford on Friday. The senior also pitched an inning of relief against San Francisco on Tuesday, allowing an unearned run as the Ducks defeated the Dons, 4-1. The Portland, Ore., native is now 4-0 in his last four starts and has allowed just two runs (one earned) in his last 32 innings of work.

This is Keudell’s second career Pac-12 Pitcher of the Week selection and Oregon’s fifth all-time selection. Keudell joins the likes of former Pac-12 pitchers Trevor Bauer (UCLA), Tim Lincecum (Washington) and Mike Leake (ASU) as one of a select few Conference pitchers to earn the weekly honor in back-to-back weeks.

Also Nominated (Player): Deven Marrero, ASU; Ryon Healy, ORE; Michael Conforto, OSU; James Brooks, UTAH.

Also Nominated (Pitcher): Kurt Heyer, ARIZ; Trevor Williams, ASU; Jace Fry, OSU; Brock Duke, UTAH; Tanner Chleborad, WSU.

• Five Pac-12 teams are ranked in Baseball America’s top 25 poll: Oregon (8), UCLA (11), Arizona (13), Stanford (14) and Arizona State (20).

• No. 11 UCLA was named CollegeBaseballInsider.com’s Team of the Week after a 3-1 week against two top-15 teams. Last Tuesday, the Bruins defeated No. 12 Cal State Fullerton at home, 4-2, and then won two out of three games in the weekend series at then-No. 4 Arizona, handing the Wildcats their first weekend series loss of the season. UCLA is the second Pac-12 team to be named the CBI Team of the Week, as Arizona earned the honor on April 3.

• UCLA junior center fielder Beau Amaral is the NCBWA National Hitter of the Week in addition to the Pac-12 Player of the Week. Amaral went 9-for-18 (.500) with two triples, one double, six RBI and seven runs in UCLA’s four games against two top-15 teams last week, posting a .778 slugging percentage. He put up his strongest numbers at Arizona on Saturday, going 4-for-6 with two triples, four RBI and four runs in UCLA’s 15-3 victory. Amaral extended his hitting streak to a career-high 18 games on Sunday, going 2-for-5 with one double, two RBI and one run to help the then-No. 17 Bruins seal the series victory at Arizona. His streak is the longest by a Bruin since Chris Jensen’s 18-game hitting streak in 2005.

• Stanford junior Eric Smith and UCLA junior Tyler Heineman have been added to the 51-person watch list for the 2012 Johnny Bench Award, the honor for college baseball’s best catcher. The award will be presented on June 28 in Wichita, Kan. Two Pac-12 catchers have received the honor since the award’s creation in 2000: Ryan Garko (Stanford, 2003) and Jeff Clement (USC, 2005).

• Arizona State’s pitching staff is in the top 10 among Division I schools in four statistical categories: the Sun Devils have the third-lowest ERA in the country at 2.57, are fourth in walks allowed per nine innings (2.09), rank seventh in strikeout-to-walk ratio (3.23—242 strikeouts to 75 walks) and are ninth in hits allowed per nine innings (7.53). ASU righties Brady Rodgers and Trevor Williams lead the Pac-12 with ERAs of 1.12 and 1.41, respectively, and rank sixth and 17th in the country in that category.

• Arizona ace Kurt Heyer threw his second-straight complete game (third of the year, sixth of his career) in Friday’s 4-3 win over UCLA. The junior also reached 300 career strikeouts, tying him for eighth on Arizona’s all-time strikeouts list.

FYI: Conforto smacked two three-run homers against Nevada.

Wow- Freshman Spencer Jordan, just threw a no hitter. WOW Of all the great pitchers we have had, he comes in and also gets a hit and gets plunked 2 times. 3-0 Ducks win. Ducks now 26-10. What a special season this is shaping up to be for the ducks. First No hitter ever for the Ducks. Nice he is a local Oregon High guy. Usually the Beavers get those guys.

Outstanding!
The Duckies are playing a GREAT brand of ball right now. Can your Ducks hold it together down the stretch? I saw you guys last year when you visited Tempe. You got swept, but were always in the fight and played with a lot of character. It was really special to see Tyler Anderson on the mound.

WALNUT CREEK, Calif. — STANFORD freshman third baseman Alex Blandino has been named Pac-12 Player of the Week and OREGON STATE freshman left-handed pitcher Jace Fry has been named Pac-12 Pitcher of the Week for April 16-22, Commissioner Larry Scott announced Monday.

Blandino went 9-for-16 (.563) over four games, racking up eight runs, four home runs, 11 RBI, one double and a steal, leading to a 1.375 slugging percentage and a .611 on-base percentage. He homered in four of his first seven at-bats last week, including two against then-No. 20 ARIZONA STATE on Friday. The Palo Alto, Calif., native hit the game-winning, two-out single in the ninth on Saturday and then contributed two runs, an RBI single and a steal on Sunday to help Stanford sweep ASU for the first time since 1999.

This is Blandino’s first career Pac-12 Player of the Week honor and the 68th all-time selection for Stanford.

• Five Pac-12 teams are ranked in Baseball America’s top 25 poll: OREGON (10), ARIZONA (11), UCLA (12), STANFORD (13) and ARIZONA STATE (23).

• Pac-12 Player of the Week Alex Blandino is also the NCBWA National Hitter of the Week and one of Louisville Slugger’s National Players of the Week. The Stanford freshman went 9-for-16 (.563) over four games, racking up eight runs, four home runs, 11 RBI, one double and a steal, leading to a 1.375 slugging percentage and a .611 on-base percentage.

The Palo Alto, Calif., native hit the game-winning, two-out single in the ninth on Saturday and then contributed two runs, an RBI single and a steal on Sunday to help Stanford sweep ASU for the first time since 1999. The NCBWA now has honored a Pac-12 slugger as the National Hitter of the Week in back-to-back weeks, with UCLA junior Beau Amaral earning the honor last week.

• Four Pac-12 pitchers have been named to the College Baseball Hall of Fame’s initial watch list for the Pitcher of the Year award: Arizona junior Kurt Heyer, Arizona State junior Brady Rodgers and sophomore Trevor Williams, and Oregon sophomore Jimmie Sherfy. The winner will be announced on June 30 in Lubbock, Texas, as part of the annual College Baseball Night of Champions.

• Stanford’s Blandino, Oregon State freshman LHP Jace Fry and Oregon freshman LHP Jordan Spencer have been named to College Baseball 360’s Primetime Performers Honor Roll for Week 10. Fry, the Pac-12 Pitcher of the Week, and Spencer each threw complete-game shutouts last week. Fry struck out six and needed just 107 pitches to finish off then-No. 11 UCLA as he improved to 4-2 on the season. Jordan faced only two batters over the minimum as he struck out a career-best five batters and tossed the first complete-game shutout of his career in just his third collegiate start.

• ASU produced seven runs in the bottom of the seventh inning versus Arizona last Tuesday to overcome a three-run deficit and beat the Wildcats, 12-8, to take the first of five meetings between the in-state rivals this season. Sun Devil junior Andrew Aplin led off the game with a home run, becoming the first ASU player to do so since Drew Maggi on May 29, 2010.

WALNUT CREEK, Calif. — OREGON sophomore second baseman Aaron Payne has been named Pac-12 Player of the Week and ARIZONA STATE sophomore right-handed pitcher Trevor Williams has been named Pac-12 Pitcher of the Week for April 23-29, Commissioner Larry Scott announced Monday.

Payne drove in five runs last week, including the game-winner against CALIFORNIA on Friday and Saturday. In Friday’s 4-1 win over the Golden Bears, Payne’s eight-inning sacrifice fly scored Brett Hambright to put Oregon up 2-1, providing the winning margin. On Saturday, the San Clemente, Calif., native smacked a two-out RBI single to break up a 2-2 tie in the eighth inning, delivering the 3-2 victory. On Sunday, Payne went 3-for-5 and drove in a career-best three runs as Oregon swept the series with a 7-1 win.

This is Payne’s first career Pac-12 Player of the Week honor and the sixth all-time selection for Oregon. Payne is the second Duck to be named Player of the Week this season, as Brett Thomas earned the honor on April 9.

Williams threw a complete-game shutout at Washington State on Saturday, striking out four, walking none and giving up no runs on seven hits in Williams’ second complete game of the year. The San Diego, Calif., product threw 78 strikes out of 101 pitches in the 2-0 victory. Williams hasn’t walked a batter in 25 consecutive innings, dating back to April 6 against Oregon State. He now has eight wins on the season and sports a 1.94 ERA.

This is Williams’ first career Pac-12 Pitcher of the Week selection and Arizona State’s 61st all-time selection. Williams is the second Pitcher of the Week from ASU this season, as Brady Rodgers received the award on March 26.

Also Nominated (Player): Bobby Brown, ARIZ; Shaun Cooper, UTAH.

Also Nominated (Pitcher): Alex Keudell, ORE; Mark Appel, STAN; Joe Pond, UTAH; Aaron West, WASH.
