Oregon St. Visits Oregon

It's time for some more Civil War baseball!

#2 Oregon St. (34-8, 17-4) at Oregon (34-13, 13-8) / P.K. Park, Eugene, OR / 6:05 PM PDT / Pac-12 Channel / KEJO 1240 AM / No KPOJ 620 AM

Game Notes

Oregon St. travels south to take on Oregon tonight in the first of two non-conference Civil War battles tonight. The Beavers swept the Ducks weekend before last in the Pac-12 portion of their annual rivalry, and both teams swept second division dwelling opponents this past weekend.

Oregon St. took 3 from 9th place California in Berkeley, while Oregon swept 10th place Arizona at P.K. Park.

Although the game won't affect the Pac-12 race, both teams need the win for best results in their post-season pursuits. Oregon St. is endeavoring to hold on to what would be a National Seed, and therefore a guaranteed hosting of a Super Regional if they get through opening weekend of the NCAA Tournament.

Oregon still has a shot at hosting a regional, but even if that doesn't happen, climbing the ladder of the second ranks to get to the most winnable regional is still in order.

Being a mid-week series, and with critical conference series coming up, the weekend rotation pitchers are all likely out of the mix, and so the Pac-12 Pitcher of the Week Jace Fry will be a spectator tonight.

Oregon St. will start Dylan Davis (0-0, 0.00 ERA). Davis, normally the Beavers' right fielder, has made 2 starts this season, the most recent one being the second game at Sacramento St. 2 weeks ago. Davis worked 4 1/3 + shutout innings in the Beavers' 8-1 win, and allowed just 1 hit, though he did walk 4, and struck out 3. 2 walks and a hit batsman in the 5th led to Davis being lifted for Zach Reser before he went long enough to get the win as a starter.

Reser also worked 4 1/3 +, but got the win.

Oregon will determine who to counter with at game time.

But the conference Player of the Week, Oregon's Shaun Chase, should be. Chase went 7-for-11 (.636), with 7 RBI, one double, notably three home runs, and four runs scored.

Oregon St.. will counter with hot hitting leadoff hitter Jeff Hendrix, who went 7-for-14 in the series sweep of California.

It could also be a record setting evening for Michael Conforto, who is now only 1 shy of Andy Jarvis's team career record of 173.
