RD, we were hoping you were going to come by and say hello. Sorry we missed you

Yeah.. maybe I will take my punishment and see you guys at your super regional... there is no way in hell we are getting seeded after not getting it done this week. I did not watch the last two games.. no pac12 channel. Listened to parker.. both losses. I figured that would happen. I feel like actually taking a break from baseball. To hard on my ticker... The baseball team must really feel like it has to carry the torch, since this is the first series win minus maybe girls basketball. I am surprised we notched 43 wins this year. Oh well. I had fun watching the girls win their regional online though, so I guess that counts for something. Super regional at home, so lots of fun coming up. Was the diving catch from altobelli as good as the first one? Just wondering.


RD, if you guys take care of business and win 3 of 4 games, you'll get a national seed. The Committe loves Horton. Just look at last year. The Ducks got swept by the superior college baseball team in the State of Oregon and still got a National seed.

DM, did you mean to say: "Even when they lose on Tuesday."

I agree with your assessment. I think the Ducks are an excellent team and worthy of a National Seed. However, after watching this weekend's series, they are a notch or two below the Beavs.

I'd actually like to see both the Beavs and Ducks take the Tuesday game less serious and play their entire bench. While I think the Beavs have a national seed wrapped up unless they lose all four of their last games, I think if the Ducks can win 2 out of 3 from Utah, they will be a top 8 seed.

Pac-12 predictions: 2013 Week 14 (RIVALRY WEEK)

DM and Pac 12 fans and friends, do you think that Arizona and Stanford still have a chance to make it to post season? What would they need to do during the last week of the season to earn a berth into the regionals?

Day three
  • Oregon State 12, Oregon 2. The Beavers jumped on Jake Reed for a run in the 1st when Michael Conforto knocked Tyler Smith in from second with a one-out single. Then Tyler Smith got a bases-loaded RBI walk in the 2nd, and Conforto blasted a two-out grand slam to put the Beavers up 6-0. Oregon State added a run in the 3rd on a to-out Tyler Smith single that knocked the ineffective Jake Reed out of the game. The Ducks scored a run in the 4th (unearned) and another in the 5th. Conforto (the projected player of the week) finished 3 for 5 with 6 RBIs. Dylan Davis and Kavin Keyes also had three hits for the Beavers and Tyler Smith had two hits and two RBIs. Scott Heineman led the Ducks going 2 for 4 with 1 RBI. The Beavers outhit the Ducks 17 to 6, and Over the three games, outscored the Ducks 21 to 5. With a two-game lead and three games left, the Beavers are in the driver’s seat for the Pac-12 championship.
    Oregon State wins series 2-1.

  • Arizona 7, Arizona State 6. Arizona State loaded the bases in the ninth, but ground into a double play to end the rally as they fell, 7-6, in the Territorial Cup. JP Maggi was 2 for 3 with 3 RBis for the ... for the Wildcats? [Check this.] Kasey Caufman and Michael Benjamin had three hits apiece for the Devils.

    Okay, the Maggi name seemed an ASU thing to me. I guess I never realized until now that the youngest of three baseball brothers had decided to go rogue and play for the Cats. http://www.arizonawildcats.com/sports/m-basebl/spec-rel/033012aaa.html
    Arizona wins series 2-1.

  • UCLA 5, USC 2. UCLA sophomore Grant Watson picked up his sixth win of the season, surrendering just two runs (one earned) in five innings of work. Kyle Twomey took the loss for USC, giving up five runs (four earned) in six innings pitched while walking four. The Bruins extended their winning streak over the Trojans to eight games and swept the season series with their crosstown rivals for the second consecutive year. UCLA has also won 23 of the last 28 meetings with USC, and they have swept their last three Pac-12 series and will enter the final weekend of conference play tied for second with Oregon and two games back of Oregon State for first.
    UCLA sweeps series 3-0.

  • Stanford 7, Cal 3. With today’s win, Stanford won its first three-game sweep on the Golden Bears' home turf since 2003. Stanford won each of its five games this season against Cal. The Cardinal (29-21, 14-13) posted a double-digit hit total for the day, knocking around the Golden Bears' pitching corps for 14 hits. Stanford collected 41 hits in the series at Evans Diamond.
    Stanford sweeps series 3-0.

  • Washington 5, Washington State 2. Five runs over the first three innings and a terrific outing from starter Zach Wright led the Washington baseball team to a 5-2 win over Washington State Sunday at GESA Stadium, completing the Huskies’ first three-game sweep over WSU since 2005. Ty Afenir was 2 for 4 with 2 RBIs for UW.
    Washington sweeps series 3-0.

  • Kansas x, Utah x. Utah has already won the three-game series, but after taking game one by a score of 1-0 and nearly run-ruling Kansas today, one has to wonder if the Jayhawks should be kicked out of postseason for the next couple years. Is the Pac-12’s 11th place team that much better than the Big XII’s 6th place team? We’ll see tomorrow....
    Utah leads series 2-0.

Ophi, I tend to agree, however, after the last two years, I really have no idea what the selection committe will do. Last year, the Ducks were swept by the Beavers and still received a top 8 seed. If my recollection is correct, I think they received a 5 seed. However, the year before, the Beavers were swept by the Ducks while leading the Pac 12 going into the last week and did not receive a national seed.


OpihiMan wrote:
They need to sweep Utah. My guess is they will be RPI 8 tomorrow, if they lose to the Beavs on Tuesday they will be 8 or 9 going into the weekend. A single loss to a team like Utah with such a low RPI will drop the Ducks to 9-10 even if they take the other 2. (This is all assuming nothing out of the sorts happens to any teams above them)

I do agree that Horton has pull, but, I think the committee is going to have a hard time handing a National Seed to a team with 10 RPI when another team less than 50 miles away (in a state without a bunch of teams...this isn't Texas, California, Florida, or the Carolinas) is awarded a national seed.

Five named to Pitcher of the Year watch list

As much as I would like to see a Beaver win this award, Kellog's no-hitter against the Beavers really places him as the front runner with Andrew Moore a close second. I would have nominated Sherfy, but after today's melt down against the Beavs, I think he is a distant third place.

By the Pac-12 Conference

WALNUT CREEK, Calif. - Five Pac-12 pitchers are among 22 players named to the midseason watch list for the Diamond Sports Pitcher of the Year Award presented by the College Baseball Hall of Fame. The Pac-12’s five representatives are tied for the most of any conference.

Representing the Pac-12 on the list are the following student athletes (in alphabetical order): Mark Appel, Sr., Stanford; David Berg, So., UCLA; Ryan Kellogg, Fr., Arizona State; Andrew Moore, Fr., Oregon State; Jimmie Sherfy, Jr., Oregon.

"All of these guys have put together really impressive numbers," said Raymond Richardson, Pitcher of the Year Award committee chair. "As the regular season winds down, they're making huge contributions to the success of their teams."

Appel, the Pac-12 leader in strikeouts (110), ranks fifth in the Pac-12 with a 1.97 ERA and boasts a .201 opposing batting average. The All-American is 8-4 in 12 starts this season and has has tossed four complete games. He has issued just 20 walks and allowed 15 extra-base hits in 91.1 innings this season.

Berg, who has pitched 30.0 straight innings without allowing a run, owns a Pac-12-best 0.64 ERA. He is 6-0 in 35 appearances and has tallied 13 saves. He boasts a .188 opposing batting average and has notched 60 strikeouts versus seven walks.

Kellogg, who sits at 10-0 for the season, is just the sixth Sun Devil to collect at least 10 wins in his freshman season. He owns a 3.36 ERA in 13 appearances (12 starts) and has thrown one complete game. He has fanned 47 batters and walked 14, while limiting opponents to a .233 batting average.

Moore, who owns the third lowest ERA is the Pac-12 (1.48), is 10-1 in 12 starts this season. He has registered 46 strikeouts versus 20 walks, and opposing batters have hit .203 against him. His opposing batting average ranks fourth in the Conference.

Sherfy, who is tied for the NCAA lead with 19 saves, needs just one more to break his own school record, which he established in 2012. He boasts a 1.00 ERA in 34 appearances this season and has struck out 50 batters while walking 13. He has held opposing batters to a .198 average.

The award will be presented on June 29 as part of the College Baseball Hall of Fame's annual Night of Champions event in Lubbock.

By the Pac-12 Conference

WALNUT CREEK, Calif. — Five Pac-12 baseball players have been named semifinalists for the 2013 Dick Howser Trophy presented by Easton Foundations, the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association announced Thursday. The award, given to the top player in collegiate baseball, is based on two rounds of national voting.

The Dick Howser Trophy, given in memory of the former Florida State University All-America shortstop and major league player and manager, who died of brain cancer in 1987, is regarded by many as college baseball's most prestigious award. Criteria for consideration of the trophy include performance on the field, leadership, moral character and courage, qualities that were exemplified by Dick Howser's life.

The semifinalists from the Pac-12 are Mark Appel, Sr., Stanford; David Berg, So., UCLA; Brandon Dixon, Jr. Arizona; Ryan Kellogg, Fr., Arizona State; Jimmie Sherfy, Jr., Oregon.

Appel, the Pac-12 leader in strikeouts (110), ranks fifth in the Pac-12 with a 1.97 ERA and boasts a .201 opposing batting average.

Dixon leads the Conference in stolen bases (30), runs scored (52) and batting average and ranks second in both slugging percentage (.574) and on-base percentage (.444). He is only the fourth player in school history to steal at least 30 bases, score 40 runs and tally 40 RBI in the same season.

Kellogg, who sits at 10-0 for the season, is just the sixth Sun Devil to collect at least 10 wins in his freshman season. He owns a 3.36 ERA in 13 appearances (12 starts) and has thrown one complete game. He has fanned 47 batters and walked 14, while limiting opponents to a .233 batting average.

The winner will be unveiled on Saturday, June 15 at 10 a.m. CT, the opening day of the 2013 CWS. USC’s Mark Prior won the award in 2001

Nick, there is no doubt Sherfy has talent. I almost feel that with Horton's need to prove a point, that he put his best pitcher in a very tough situation in which he fell apart. There was really not need to put Sherfy in the game. One has to wonder if his poor performance today will carry over into future peformances.

He went from 1.00 to 1.7? Really? From 1 game? Although I guess had he pitched more innings over the course of the year, it wouldn't have been such a drastic change. Putting him in must have been a complete act of desperation by Horton. In hindsight, it was kind of a silly move.

Been really enjoying the Beavers season this year. I think we have one of the best 3-man pitching rotations in the nation, with one of the best bullpens on top of that. And when our offense is clicking, there are not many teams that can compete against us.

Better late then never, so here is my predictions for the last week of the P12 season.
