Washington St. (22-31, 9-20) at #4 Oregon St. (44-10, 23-6) / 12:05 PM / Goss Stadium / Pac-12 Channel / KEJO 1240 AM & KPOJ 620 AM

Game Notes / Gametracker / No Live Stream

It's the end of the regular season, and the things we know are the 4th ranked Beavers will be hosting a regional next week, and the Cougars won't be playing in one. But there is still a game to be played.

With Oregon's 6-2 win Saturday at Utah, either a Beaver win or a upset this afternoon by the Utes is necessary for Oregon St. to finish alone atop the Pac-12, though the tiebreaker ensures the Beavers the championship and the conference's automatic post-season berth.

Washington St. would love to head into the off-season with the vast majority of their young roster returning on a winning note against the conference champions.

Oregon St. will send junior LHP Ben Wetzler (7-1, 1.46) out to try for his 8th consecutive Sunday win. Washington St. will counter with sophomore RHP Scott Simon (3-4, 3.68).

Oregon St. coach Pat Casey has tweaked the batting order again today, moving Danny Hayes ahead of Ryan Barnes. Here's today's OSU lineup:

Tyler Smith-SS

Andy Peterson-2B

Michael Conforto-LF

Dylan Davis-RF

Danny Hayes-1B

Ryan Barnes-DH

Kain Keyes-3B

Jake Rodriguez-C

Max Gordon-CF
