#6 Oregon St. (40-8, 19-4) at #25 Stanford (26-19, 11-12) / 1 PM / Sunken Diamond, Palo Alto, CA / KEJO 1240 AM & KPOJ 620 AM
Oregon St. goes for several record book milestones as well as their 3rd consecutive Pac-12 series sweep today at Sunken Diamond against Stanford.
Having already won the series with a 10-4 win Saturday, the Beavers are looking to equal the 2005 team for most wins in the regular season in program history, and the 1993 team's record for second most conference wins. A victory today will surpass the 2005 team for most in the conference since the 1999 reunification of the North and South divisions of the Pac.
Junior LHP Ben Wetzler (5-1, 1.46) will be looking for his 6th Sunday win in a row, as well as the above records, for Oregon St.
Stanford didn't settle on who to start with to try to salvage something of the weekend until midday today, when they decided to go with junior RHP Sam Lindquist (2-1, 3.09), who has most often worked as the closer for the Cardinal. Lindquist, who went to high school with Oregon St.'s Matt Boyd, has only worked 32 innings in 20 appearances, allowing 25 hits and 13 walks, with 29 strikeouts.
Jake Rodriguez will be sitting out today, after being ejected yesterday, and Ryan Barnes is also not starting, so today's lineup for the Beavers is:
