Pac-12 Weekend Preview (March 1st-3rd)

Pac12LogoCoach’s Corner

In preparing for the weekend, I caught up with Oregon State head coach Pat Casey to talk about his thoughts on how the season has gone so far for the Beavers. Oregon State is 8-0 and off to their best start since 1962. “Obviously when you start 8-0, you feel like you did a lot of things well,” Casey said. We played fairly well on the defensive side of the game. I think we could have swung the bats better.” The Beavers enter the weekend with a .297 team batting average, but will look to improve upon that number against a team in Bryant who has only played three games this season.

The No. 22 ranked Sun Devils traveled to Knoxville to take on the Volunteers over the weekend. In game one, RHP Trevor Williams secured his first victory of the season by throwing seven innings and striking out eight as Arizona State won 4-0. Trevor Allen hit a three-run homerun for the Devils. In game two, after Arizona State scored two early runs, RHP Drake Owenby for Tennessee was able to stifle Arizona State.

The Pac-12 is one of the best conferences in college baseball. It’s a safe statement after the University of Arizona claimed their fourth National Championship in school history by sweeping the two-time defending champion South Carolina Gamecocks in 2012. Their coach was also rewarded. Andy Lopez was named the National Coach of the Year by the National College Baseball Writers Association (NCBWA). Arizona was also able to lay claim to the Pac-12 title last season; an honor in which they shared with another national power, UCLA. UCLA finished one game better than Arizona in the overall record, and advanced to the College World Series in Omaha, Neb. They meet in the winner’s bracket with Arizona getting the better of their conference rival. Still, two teams in the College World Series, is a signal to the rest of the NCAA that the Pac-12 is once again a dominant conference. Continue reading
