Oregon State and Oregon meet at 2:00 PM west coast time today to continue the three game series between the Beavers and Ducks. After today's game, the two teams will meet again at 1:00 PM tomorrow for the series finale.
Oregon State comes into today's game with a record of 38-15, 17-8 in the Pac-10. The Beavers have good wins against Connecticut, Arizona State (3), Stanford (3), UCLA (2), and California (2). Oregon State has other solid victories against Gonzaga (2), Oregon, Long Beach State (2), and Arizona (2).
The Beavers are currently on a three game losing streak after back-to-back losses against USC and a loss to rival Oregon last night. The Beavers fell by a score of 8-3 on Saturday and 4-3 on Sunday, and last night it was a 4-1 victory for Oregon. The Ducks would jump out to a 2-0 lead against the Beavers and never look back on a chilly night at PK Park in Eugene.
The Beavers came into this week ranked 7th in the Perfect Game USA Top 25.
The Ducks come into the game with a record of 31-26, 9-16 in the Pac-10. The Ducks are currently on a two game winning streak after defeating Portland on Tuesday and the Beavers last night.
After last weekend's series loss against Washington State, there is no way for the Ducks to make the NCAA Tournament. Of course, though, that doesn't mean Oregon wouldn't love to spoil Oregon State's party and keep them out of contention for a national seed.
Aaron Jones and KC Serna led Oregon at the plate in last night's 4-1 victory by picking up 2 RBI's each. These will be the final games of Oregon's 2011 season.
Josh Osich (6-3, 3.44) will get the start for Oregon State today, while the Ducks will send out Christian Jones (6-2, 3.36). In Osich's last start, Josh went 5.2 innings, giving up 3 runs (2 Earned) on 6 hits. In Jone's last start, Christian went 8 innings, giving up 3 runs (All eanred) on 7 hits.
