Oregon St. junior pitcher Jace Fry, who carried what could have been his second no-hitter of the month into the 8th inning at Arizona yesterday, has been named the Pac-12 Pitcher of the Week, after allowing 1 hit in 7 innings plus of 1 hit baseball.

The Beavers stayed at #6 in this week's Baseball America top 25 poll as well, but while there was a lot of upheaval further down, there was no movement in the top 7, with Florida St. staying at the top.

Cal-Poly stayed at #5 as well, but Oregon tumbled from #11 to #19, after splitting a pair at San Francisco, and then dropping the first 2 of 3 at Stanford, who will be in Corvallis to play the Beavers this coming weekend.

Washington, which beat Gonzaga, and then swept their series at USC, to take a 2 game lead in the Pac-12 standings, jumped all the way up to #14, while UCLA, which lost 2 of 3 against visiting Arizona St., slipped further, from #18 to #21. The Huskies current run of success has them ranked for the first time since 2006.

UC-Santa Barbara dropped from #15 to #17, after a 2-2 week, and pre-season #1 Fullerton St. continues to fall, dropping to #18 from #9 after dropping 2 of 3 to Wichita St.

The west did pick up a new ranked team though, as UNLV moved into the top 25 after the Rebs beat Utah Valley, and then took 2 of 3 at Nebraska.

Kendall Rogers' Perfect Game Top 25 also kept Oregon St. at #7 on his list, with the Seminoles his #1 as well. Rogers only dropped Oregon from #8 to #11 though. The Huskies debuted on his list as well, at #18, with UCLA dropping from #18 to #23.

Collegiate Baseball swapped South Carolina into their #1 spot, ahead of Louisiana-Lafayette, and elevated Oregon St. from #8 to #6, as Oregon dropped from #7 to #14 in their top 25. Washington moved up from #19 to #11, and UCLA dropped out altogether, replaced by Arizona St. at #25.
