Day three

Oregon State 4, Cal 2: Cal’s Tony Renda opened the game by blasting a 1-2 pitch over the left field fence. The Beavers scored two in their half, thanks to an RBI double by Jared Norris. Brian Stamps created his own two-out rally in the 2nd: He singled, stole second base, took third on a bad throw by the catcher, and scored on a wild pitch to make it 3-1 Beavers. Renda batted in the Bears’ other run in the 8th, with a double off reliever Matt Boyd that scored Austin Booker. Ben Wetzler went 7.0 IP and allowed one run (earned), 4 hits, striking out 7 and walking none for the win. Tony Bryant earned his ninth save. Oregon State has won all six Pac-10 series this year and remain in first place, a game ahead of ASU.

Oregon State wins series, 2-1.

UCLA 4, Oregon 0: Alex Keudell went 6.2 IP and kept the Bruins off the board. In fact, both teams traded big yellow zeros for seven innings, until UCLA led off with three straight singles off the Duck bullpen and scored one. UCLA scored three more against Scott McGough, who isn’t fooling anyone this year. UCLA’s Adam Plutko went the full nine for the shutout win. He struck out 7, walked 1, and gave up 2 hits.

UCLA sweeps series, 3-0.

Stanford 7, Washington 2: Washington led this game from the 1st inning until the bottom of the 8th, and UW starter Austin Voth limited the Cardinal to six hits and one run over six innings. But the Huskies’ bullpen collapsed yet again and allowed six runs in the 8th, turning a 2-1 lead into a 7-2 deficit. Brian Ragira led the Cardinal going 2 for 4, 2 RBIs.

Stanford sweeps series, 3-0.

Arizona State 17, CS Long Beach 9: Tied 2-2 going into the bottom of the 4th, ASU scored three to take a 5-2 lead, then plowed through for six more in the 5th and two in the seventh to blow it open 13-2. Trailing 17-3 in the 9th, the Dirtbags made things interesting by loading the bases, then clearing them with consecutive doubles, a single, and another double. THe teams combined for 26 runs, 30 hits, and 6 errors. Andy Workman led the Devils with a 4 for 5 day, 7 RBIs, 3 runs scored, 2 HRs. Joey DeMichele had a solo homer and went 2 for 5.

Arizona State sweeps series, 3-0.

UNLV 6, Washington State 3: Wazzu’s struggles continue. The Rebels did not overpower them today; they scored in six different innings once each. Cougar pitcher James Wise pitched six innings and allowed four runs (three earned) to take the loss. Catcher Collin Slaybaugh led the Cougs at the plate, going 3 for 4 with 1 RBI. I can’t see Washington State making the postseason any more.

UNLV wins series 2-1.

Arizona 15, Alcorn State 2: Arizona outscored the pride of the SWAC 33-6 over the three-game series. Alcorn State could very well be the SWAC’s representative to the postseason, so it would be safe to predict a two-n-cue performance as a 4 seed for the Braves.

Arizona sweeps series, 3-0.


Looking forward to seeing my score this week. I got a couple of the sweeps- ASU and Stanford, but the Duckies and Wazzu let me down.

Beaver announcer Mike Parker interviewed Brian Stamps for the postgame show. It's great to see Stamps providing some offense. What a terror on the bases today. He also had a couple of good defensive plays. I continue to be impressed at how articulate and humble these baseball players are. Casey has done a great job with them.

Great job! Well, my ballsy week paid dividends for me this time King-dude, but I don't think I'll find my way out of the basement area before the end of the season. Beavers sweeping Sun Devils really hurt!

Stick around. You're fun (for a little brother)


This is so dam exciting!

Kinda want to take Riverduck under our wings, but fortunately, us Beavers don't have wings Just a long tail and a very developed brain and ability to play baseball.

Only 2 Pac 10 teams???? I can't believe that Cal, UCLA, and Stanford aren't in the mix. OSU beat a very good Cal team and I noticed that Cal dropped from the top 25 in most polls. Also, UCLA swept Oregon on some great pitching. They probably have the best Fri/Sat starters in the Country.

What's up with the the Beavers starting Osich instead of Gaviglio? Doesn't look like the move worked out for Casey as Osich got slapped around and was yanked in the 4th after 85 pitches. The Huskie are thumping the Beavs 4-2 in the fourth.

Bob, Casey said on the pregame that they had intended to give him the extra day of rest this week a while back, then when they played a DH last Saturday, that made the decision easier for them. To top it off, Safeco is bigger than Husky Ballpark, which Casey called a bandbox, and Sammy's grounder-inducing pitching is better in that kind of environment.


Thanks DM. I missed the pregame show as I was watching my daughter's softball game. It looks like the comeback Beavers are at it again. Just went ahead 5-4 in the 5th.

Join the club. Gerrit Cole is getting mashed. 7 hits and 4 runs in the first two innings.


What's the deal with Cole. He pitched great last week but got beat up by the Beavs the week before.

SC beats the Devils 5-1. Gives the Beavers a little breathing room -- if they can hang on and beat the Huskies.

Was hoping to get a few more votes before posting this, but I'm bored and tired of waiting. Here's your pick analysis:
  • Oregon State, Arizona State, and UCLA are unanimous 18/0 picks to win.
  • OSU earned 15 sweeps, ASU 12 sweeps, UCLA 9 sweeps.
  • Stanford and Arizona are 16/2 favorites to win.
  • Stanford earned 5 sweeps; Arizona earned 2 sweeps.
  • Nobody voted for Cal this week.
  • We had 11 Beaver voters, 3 Devils, 1 Cardinal, 1 Bruin, 1 Roadrunner, and 1 unknown.
  • No Ducks voted in this week's predictions.
  • We have had no Wazzu, Arizona, or UW fans this year.
  • We are in the middle of the third straight year that nobody has even sighted a Cal fan. Not even a whiff of a Cal fan has been detected, and some of them can be smelled from quite a distance. Maybe we should start calling them the Golden Sasquatches, not just because some of their pitchers have as much hair as a sasquatch, but because their fans are so rare.
  • Last year we had a slight plurality of Devils, so this year marks a decided drop in Devil participation.


Matt, great info. It looks like OSU might have the only sweep of these three.

  • Oregon State, Arizona State, and UCLA are unanimous 18/0 picks to win.
  • OSU earned 15 sweeps, ASU 12 sweeps, UCLA 9 sweeps.

    Ducks leading 8-1 going into the 6th.. ended up losing 9-8. Unbelievable.



    I saw that. I couldn't believe Oregon blew a 7 run lead heading to the 6th. I saw they took a 8-1 lead and assumed it was over and then the next time I checked Stanford had just taken a 9-8 lead. That's pretty bad.
    Well we did beat you last time we played. I would be happy if we were the only ones to win a series against you this year. I will be voting that we get swept.. lol


    There are the ducks I'm accustomed to seeing.Owned

    well, last time we played you we did the owning. Anyway the way this season is rolling- a series win against the top in the pac would settle well with me.


    The Beavers are looking alot like the Duckies right now. They have blown a 6 run lead.

    I was looking at RPI in Boyd's World today. Beavers lose 1 game to UW and fall to 20th, down 9 spots.

    Kendall, I enjoyed reading your comments about OSU. I agree that the Beavers and Casey have performed above everybody's expectations this year. I just hope that by losing their the third game of the series with UW yesterday in the fashion they did doesn't impact their performance in their remaining 6 Pac 10 games. They were up 6-0 and just appeared to stop trying.

    Also, if they finish with an RPI in the 20-30 range, will they really earn a national seed?

    Riverduck, congrats on your Duck's series win over Stanford. I think there were just a few of us who got this pick right. I can't say I am proud of picking the Ducks to win the series as I really can't root for the Ducks. I'm convinced that Eugene and Hell are one in the same Your Ducks do concern me over the next couple of series, especially against my Beavs.

    Easy DM, easy. It all come down to left coast, right coast. There always has been, but maybe not always will be, right coast bias. Football and baseball (thaks to UCLA, basketball includes left coast). The big difference? Time. TV will not cover games out here that run until 11 p.m. because most folk will go to sleep and not watch. There is very little cross coast watching going here, but ESPN other carriers of college sports will carry 85% right coast and leave left coast out in the cold. And since TV runs the media perceptions, the right coast is considered the "stronger" coast. Not true, but that's how the perceptions run. I say screw 'em. We know the truth of it.

    I get that. Been living that for some time. My beef is the retarded metric that the NCAA baseball committee uses to select and seed teams. The conventional wisdom is that Oregon State will be a national seed. If we win the next two series--don't even have to sweep--we will be among the top eight seeds in the nation. But our RPI will be in the 20s. Kendall Rogers disparages the ISR and says "we don't use it" because the NCAA doesn't use it; they use the RPI. And yet he says OSU is a lock for the top eight. What does this say other than the RPI is useless? The ISR has OSU in the top eight. Doesn't that give you a hint that the ISR may be better at ranking teams if it more accurately approximates your personal assessment of who are the top ranked teams in the nation? And if we can all look at the Rat's Patootie Index and say, "yup...it sucks...not worth a duckturd," then why do people still use it like this: "Team X is 3-1 vs. RPI 25, 6-4 vs. RPI 50, and 12-6 vs. RPI 100"? The whole analysis of teams' performance versus other teams using the RPI becomes meaningless.

    Flush the RPI. Loo Flush


    DM, how do we get you on the selection committee?
