Baseball Open Thread: OSU vs. Arizona, Game 1

New, 50 comments

The Oregon State Beavers look to continure their winning ways tonight against Arizona in Corvallis. The Beavers are looking to pad their Tournament Resumé. You can listen to the game in the Portland Area on 1550 KKAD.

The first pitch is scheduled to be thrown out at 5:35 PM Pacific. I should be in the thread for most of the game.

Arizona is 32-20 on the season.

Oregon State's task this weekend is simple: win the series. That begins tonight, when the Beavers can get the weekend started right with a win over Arizona. 

The series matches up two teams fighting for the lives in the postseason. Each team feels like they need two of three to secure a spot in the bracket. 

Arizona head coach Andy Lopez:

"I told the guys, 'One (win) makes it very, very interesting if we don't get in, two slams the door and three, well, you probably get a very good seed,'" he said. "I hope we get in. I think we deserve it."

Oregon State head coach Pat Casey:

"If we win two of three, I would think there's no question we're a lock to get in. If we win one-- with our RPI and our conference RPI, I would think we'd get in. But the committee makes those decisions."

Something has gotta give. 

GO BEAVERS!
