• 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).

Nice summary ASU74. You and Dodger Matt need to solicit Kendall for payment.

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.

This made me smile. I must admit, however, that there have been a number of times I jumped to a Pac-12 team's website to copy-n-paste some of their verbiage for game summaries.

But I don't often go to the Pac-12 website, so Bob's compliment is still spot on. I mean, whoda thunk that Wazzu and UW would be leading the nation in anything this year? (I just want to see some mention next week of Conforto smacking two three-run homers against Nevada. If pac-12.org doesn't, then it is incumbent on you to edit and add that info.)
