Corvallis, Ore. – No. 1 in the polls. No. 1 overall seed. Limping into the postseason after losing three of four to end the season.
Since senior second baseman Andy Peterson sustained a sprained ankle at the bottom of a celebratory pile on May 17 – when Oregon State defeated Washington 1-0 on Logan Ice’s walk-off double – the Beavers have struggled to score runs. Continue reading 2014 Corvallis (OR) Regional preview
The Pac-12 and the Mountain West were the only two conferences with Southern California squads still active, but that didn’t mean there was any less drama on the final day of the college baseball regular season.
USC went for a second upset — and the series win — of the No. 1 team in the nation. UCLA was trying for the sweep of No. 13 Washington. And San Diego State was trying to swim the rough currents of the Mountain West loser’s bracket for the second straight year.
Could the Aztecs knock top-seeded UNLV off for the second time in as many days?
Have to keep the roundup of the exciting final full day of Southern California action to a minimum tonight as I’m headed out from Banner Island Ballpark in Stockton, Calif. after the WCC Championship and driving to Las Vegas, Nev. for the Mountain West finale tomorrow.
(Well, I ended up getting booted from Banner Island before I could finish up, so I made a pit stop in Barstow to rest the legs and finish up the SoCal Roundup. I will have more from the WCC Championship later when I arrive and settled in at UNLV.)
But here’s Saturday’s SoCal Roundup complete with photo galleries from Cal State Fullerton and Banner Island Ballpark:
The Mountain West Conference Tournament had a couple of exciting finishes and officially has a team swinging a mean scythe. The West Coast Conference has its championship game participants and it will be a familiar face-off.
Oh…and some guy named Garza happened to throw nine innings without the other team getting a hit and there might have been an upset of the No. 1 team in the country.

Two-way players are becoming more and more rare in the college baseball game, but their value has never been higher with the 11.7 scholarship limit. In Southern California, there have been a number of two-way studs, including Michael Lorenzen last year with Cal State Fullerton.
This year, Pepperdine’s Aaron Brown and San Diego’s Louie Lechich have been dynamic Sunday starters when they aren’t roaming the plains in centerfield and hitting bombs in the middle of their respective teams’ lineups. But who would come out on top when the two duo players faced off with each other? See who helped their squad win the big series rubber match in Malibu.
That plus rubber matches at San Diego State, Cal Poly, USC and Cal State Fullerton. Find out how things shook out on Sunday in Southern California.
