UCLA 1 OREGON 0
For the second consecutive night, the Bruins shut out the 10th-ranked Oregon Ducks, 1-0, behind an outstanding pitching performance from junior Nick Vander Tuig. Vander Tuig tossed seven scoreless innings, giving up just two hits and two walks while striking out six to earn his sixth win of the year.
Sophomore David Berg was also terrific in relief, throwing 1.1 innings of shutout ball to pick up his 10th save of the year. Cole Irvin took the loss for Oregon, falling to 7-2 despite pitching all nine innings and giving up just one unearned run.

UCLA LEADS SERIES 2-0

ARIZONA 10 STANFORD 9

Brandon Dixon homered to break a tie in the ninth and fittingly made the final putout of the game to thwart one final Stanford rally as the 25th-ranked Arizona baseball team escaped with a 10-9 victory and evened a three-game series between the schools on Saturday afternoon at Sunken Diamond.
After seeing a four-run lead evaporate in the late innings, Dixon delivered his fifth home run of the season - a solo shot to left field - and the Wildcats had their third lead of the ballgame.
This time, Arizona (25-13, 9-8) did not relinquish the lead, though Stanford (21-12, 8-6) made things difficult in the bottom of the ninth.

SERIES TIED 1-1

WASHINGTON STATE 7 CALIFORNIA 6

Jason Monda's single in the top of the ninth inning scored Trace Tam Sing and Washington State defeated California 7-6 in Pac-12 Conference baseball, Saturday night.
Monda (2-0) also earned the victory on the mound, working two shutout innings. His game-winning hit made a loser out of California (17-21, 6-11 Pac-12) reliever Dylan Nelson (1-4).

SERIES TIED 1-1

USC 7 UTAH 4

The Trojan bats came back alive on Saturday, tallying 10 hits in a 7-4 victory over Utah to take game two of the series at Spring Mobile Ballpark.
Garrett Stubbs (Del Mar, Calif./Torrey Pines HS) and Blake Lacey (Clovis, Calif./Clovis HS) led the Trojans as they went 2-for-4 at the plate, with Lacey andDante Flores (Norwalk, Calif./St. John Bosco HS) each driving in two runs. Overall, eight different Trojans had hits in the game, including Timmy Robinson (Huntington Beach, Calif./Ocean View HS), who extended his hit streak to a team-high 11 games.

SERIES TIED 1-1

WASHINGTON 5 OREGON STATE 1 (game 1)
*$%&$*$%&($#*#&$(%*$(!!!!
The teams were knotted in a pitcher's duel until Washington finally broke through in the sixth inning. The Huskies loaded the bases off OSU's left-handed starter Matt Berry (7-2) with a single, walk and error. With one out, the Huskies plated three runs on consecutive RBI singles by Joe Meggs, Braden Bishop and Ty Afenir. Berry escaped the inning after Ray lined into a double play to first base, but by then the damage had been done.

WASHINGTON 10 OREGON STATE 3 (game 2)
&$*(#&$(*Q@#^%&*(@#^(&*@#^$(*&@#$*(@#&$()*$&@(*#@(*^#*(&%^&*#@$*@(#$&(*)!!!!!
the Huskies sent 14 batters to the plate and scored eight runs to beat a shell-shocked Beavers' squad, 10-3 in the nightcap.
The Huskies jumped on the scoreboard first in the second after a two-out RBI double by Braden Bishop plated Ryan Wiggins, who led off the inning with a single off starter Andrew Moore.The 1-0 lead held until OSU finally got to Husky starter Austin Voth with a two-out, bases loaded triple by third baseman Kavin Keyes in the fifth inning. They were the first runs in 11 2/3 innings the Beavers were able to mount off the Huskies' starters.

WASHINGTON LEADS SERIES 2-0

ARIZONA STATE 15 VALPARAISO 3

Freshman left-hander Ryan Kellogg improved to 9-0 and freshman designated hitter RJ Ybarra hit the school's first grand slam in three years as the ninth-ranked Arizona State University baseball team defeated Valparaiso, 15-3, on Saturday night at Packard Stadium in Tempe, Ariz.
Ybarra set a career high with five RBI, infielder Dalton DiNatale went a career high 4-for-4 with three RBI and third baseman Michael Benjamin hit a double and a triple to pace the Sun Devils (24-11-1), who scored double-digit runs in consecutive games for the first time this season and set a season high with three triples.

ARIZONA STATE LEADS SERIES 2-0

There were several pitchers...Terminator, Ruby.... I made a point of emptying one of the Terminators.

I don't know if this proves that the Beavers do better when I listen/watch them play or when I am not drinking. Probably the former.

Borg, I read that recap on UW's website last night and wondered where they came up with "OSU's left-handed starter Matt Berry." They refer to Boyd as "Berry" four times, including "Mercer Island native Berry." Is this just shoddy UW sports journalism? Or is there something more sinister at work here, like a purposeful diss to somebody who grew up in the Huskies' backyard but chose to play for a better program?

well, the huskies were the better program this weekend. I have bitter memories of the ducks having heartbreaking losses when they where the better overall team on paper. Home field advantage does have its perks. We play UCLA better in their yard.. lol

Score analysis
One of the lowest group scores ever.
  • High score (18) was 2 pts lower than last week’s LOW score. (--edited)
  • Nobody got even 4 of 6 series right. Only one, BeaverBeliever20, got three right.
  • Four people did not correctly pick a single series.
  • Only one series had an average score over 3: ASU 2-1 over Valpo (avg = 3.06).
  • The lowest avg score was UW 2-1 over OSU (1.17 pts).

Ouch, glad I had some company at the bottom. I knew it was risky going with all sweeps. Darn, I was close with the Bruins.

The Beavs still holding down first in the Pac 12 with a 733 percentage compared to the Dicks at 722. UCLA and Stanfard are 2 back in the loss column with 600 percentages. Should be an interesting home stretch.

I'm feeling uneasy about the Beavs game tomorrow against the Redhawks.

I think some of what is happening is our offensive residual momentum that results from our batting is slowing down. The heart of our order was Conforto in the first 1/2 of the season. Since then he has slid downhill appreciatively. Conforto was driving in runs and putting points up on the board and now he strikes out, pops out or gets on base and doesn't make it home. Opposing pitchers were SCARED of him. Big pop for us. Now? Nope. Conforto needs to be moved in the batting order. maybe 1 or 2 or perhaps 8 or 9 until he gets his mojo back and becomes the heart of the team again.

someone needs to tell conforto to stop swinging for the fences, that is why he has all those pop ups.... he just needs to calm down and just try to hit the ball, the HRs will come. it would also help if the guys in front of him would get on base, will force pitchers to throw to him, and sooner or later he will make them pay.... hopefully USC will provide the cure
