Arizona State at Oregon State
Oregon State took two out of three from Arizona State over the weekend. On Friday the Beavers, beyond LHP Matt Boyd, won the opener by a final of 5-0. Boyd went the distance and only allowed one hit. He struck out a career high 11 batters. Outfielder Michael Conforto led the Beavers with three hits, while designated hitter Dylan Davis drove in two RBI. While Boyd’s outing on Friday was impressive, the most outstanding performance of the weekend took place Saturday, as LHP Ryan Kellogg threw a no-hitter in the Sun Devil 4-0 victory. Kellogg struck out three and did not walk a batter. The no-hitter was the first against Oregon State since March 27, 1994 when Lewis and Clark State accomplished the feat. Arizona State had two errors to spoil the perfect game. Four Sun Devils had multi-hit games, while outfielder Jake Peevyhouse drove in two RBI. One of the RBI came on the outfielder’s first home run of the season. On Sunday, the Beavers were able to bounce back and claim the series victory with a 4-3 victory. Neither starter worked past the fifth, while a Michael Conforto sacrifice fly gave the Beavers the lead. The Oregon State bullpen was able to work around walks in the later innings to seal the victory. Continue reading Pac-12 Weekend Recap (March 22nd-24th)

PRINCETON, N.J. — The Princeton Tigers made a return to the top of the Ivy standings for the first time since 2006, and did so largely due to the play of junior catcher/outfielder Sam Mulroy (Bethesda, Md.) and RHP/first baseman Mike Ford (Belle Mead, N.J.), who were voted the 2011 Ivy League Player of the Year and Rookie of the Year, respectively, in a vote by the League’s eight head coaches.
