Pac-12 Baseball Weekly Rundown - May 17, 2023

May 17, 2023

LEADING OFF: No. 5 Stanford successfully defended its Pac-12 regular season title last weekend and clinched the No. 1 seed in the Pac-12 Baseball Tournament for a second consecutive year, but the rest of the conference has left plenty of drama for the final weekend. 

The Cardinal, the preseason favorite, delivered the program's first back-to-back conference crowns since 2003 and 2004 and became the first Pac-12 team to win consecutive titles since Oregon State in 2013 and 2014. 

While six teams - Stanford, Washington, Oregon State, USC, Oregon and Arizona State - have officially secured their spots in next's week postseason tournament in Scottsdale, the Cardinal are the only ones who know their seed. With eight seeds yet to be determined and the remaining five teams - UCLA, Arizona, Washington State, California and Utah - fighting for the final three berths, every team sans the 2023 champions and an Oregon State squad that is on its conference bye week has something to play for.

The two biggest surprises of the season, Washington and USC, find themselves with a chance to secure a top-three seed after the Huskies were picked to finish seventh in the preseason poll and the Trojans 10th. The Huskies and Trojans both enter their final series having won six straight and sit in second and fourth place, respectively, in the standings. UW hosts California at Husky Ballpark and USC travels to Tucson to take on Arizona with the Bears and Wildcats fighting for their postseason life.

It is no coincidence that Washington and USC are led by the two first-year coaches in the league, the Huskies by Jason Kelly and Trojans by Andy Stankiewicz, who took over for stagnant programs after highly successful runs in previous stops - Kelly as an assistant and associate head coach most recently in the SEC and Stankiewicz as a head coach at Grand Canyon where he turned the 'Lopes into a top program in the West. It hasn't taken long for either skipper to make their mark in their new homes with Washington on its way to securing its first NCAA postseason berth since its College World Series run in 2018 and USC on the verge of returning to the postseason for the first time since 2015.

No. 18 Oregon State currently sits in third, but is idle after closing out its league slate 18-12 overall. The Beavers can earn the No. 2 seed for a second consecutive year, but they will have to scoreboard watch to find out their seeding fate as they host Western Carolina (Pac-12 Insider) to conclude the regular season.

Even though Oregon and Arizona State will play next week in Scottsdale, both teams have hit speed bumps as of late with injuries playing a role. The Ducks are at Utah and the Sun Devils host UCLA with both squads looking to get back in the win column and put momentum back on their side heading into the tournament. The Utes and Bruins, meanwhile, need to collect some victories to stay in the conversation for next week.

Rounding out the weekend schedule is Stanford visiting Washington State with the Cougars eyeing their first Pac-12 Tournament berth after missing out a year ago.

All six series will take place Thursday, May 19 - Saturday, May 20 with all five Pac-12 series airing live on Pac-12 Network channels. The second annual Pac-12 Baseball Tournament kicks off Tuesday, May 23 at Scottsdale Stadium. 


  • The Pac-12 has the fourth-best RPI ranking as a conference behind the SEC, ACC and Big 12.
  • Thru May 16, the Pac-12 has 10 of 11 teams in the Top 90 in Adjusted RPI, one of only three conferences in the nation (ACC, SEC) to have nine or more in the Top 100. Four are in the top 40. Stanford has the league's top RPI ranking at No. 15, followed by Oregon State at No. 31, Washington at No. 32 and Oregon at No. 39. Arizona State sits at No. 54 with USC checking in at No. 56, Arizona at No. 58 and UCLA at No. 59. Washington State and California are at No. 84 and No. 87, respectively, with Utah rounding it out at No. 144.


  • The Pac-12 and the SEC are the only conferences with every program having a winning record in non-conference play. Overall, the Pac-12 has the third-best non-conference winning percentage among all conferences so far in 2023 with a 167-70-1 mark. The SEC is on top with a 276-63-1 record, followed by the ACC in second at 262-77.
  • 9 of 11 league teams are at .500 or better with one week remaining in the regular season. Six teams (Stanford, ASU, Oregon, Oregon State, Washington and USC) are .500 or better in league play.
  • Through May 16, the Pac-12 owns a 103-42 (.710) record against teams from the other four D1 conferences in the West Region (Big West, Mountain West, WAC, WCC). 

ON THE ROAD: 20-of-26 games against opponents in the A5 have been played away from home, including all 10 games against the SEC. Overall, Pac-12 teams have played 102 games away from home (non-conference plus neutral site).

RANKINGS ROUNDUP: The Pac-12 has two teams ranked and two more receiving votes in the latest USA Today's Coaches Poll. Overall, the league has at least two teams ranked in five of the six major polls. 

  • USA Today: #5 Stanford, #18 Oregon State, RV - Washington, USC
  • D1Baseball: #3 Stanford, #10 Oregon State, #24 Washington
  • Baseball America: #4 Stanford, #17 Oregon State, #24 Washington
  • Collegiate Baseball: #3 Stanford, #18 Oregon State
  • NCBWA:  #5 Stanford, #16 Oregon State, #25 Washington, RV - Oregon, USC
  • Perfect Game: #4 Stanford, Also considered - Oregon State, Washington


  • Thanks to a little help from Washington and USC handing Oregon and Arizona State losses, Stanford winning two of three at home over Arizona was enough to secure their second straight Pac-12 regular-season title and the No. 1 seed in next week's Pac-12 Tournament. It is the 21st overall for Stanford and first back-to-back crowns since 2003 and 2004.
  • The Cardinal continue to be superb in close games in 2023 with a 16-4 record in games decided by two runs or less. Preseason All-American Quinn Matthews leads the Stanford pitching staff with a 3.08 ERA and his 113 strikeouts rank second in the nation. The left-hander notched at least 10 strikeouts in six consecutive outings from March 31 - May 5. Stanford's Alberto Rios became the first the season to earn Pac-12 Player of the Week honors in consecutive weeks and the first Cardinal to accomplish the feat since 2017 after he hit .556 with four home runs, 11 RBI and a 1.333 slugging percentage during a 3-1 week for Stanford.
  • Washington is one of college baseball's hottest teams with six straight wins and victories in 11 of the last 12. The Huskies, coming off their first sweep of Oregon since 2009, can finish as high as second place with a sweep over Cal this weekend, which would be its highest since 2016. UW entered the national rankings this week for the first time this season, checking in at No. 24 in both the D1Baseball and Baseball America Top-25 polls. Kelly has done a masterful job in his debut season in Seattle with the Huskies' 32 wins the second-most by a first-year head coach in program history. 
  • USC's Stankiewicz has led a complete turnaround in LA. He picked up his first signature series win against then-No. 3 Stanford at home the weekend of March 10, the Trojans' first over the Cardinal in eight years. Stankiewicz and the Trojans then secured their first series win at home over rival UCLA since 2005 on the weekend of April 23. The Trojans started off strong winning four consecutive Pac-12 series to start conference play for the first time since 2001, while USC's seven series and 16 league wins have far surpassed last year's totals of two and eight, respectively. Winners of six straight, the Trojans will play in the Pac-12 Tournament for the first time after missing out last year and will have a chance at the No. 2 seed in Scottsdale. 
  • With its series win at UCLA, Oregon State climbed the rankings this week, sitting as high as No. 10 in D1Baseball's Top-25. The Beavers closed out its Pac-12 slate winning seven of its last eight Pac-12 series with the only loss during that stretch coming to Arizona State in Tempe. Overall, OSU has won 24 of their last 32 since getting swept at Stanford on March 19. The Beavers continue to rank top-30 in the country in ERA (4.30, 26th) with the pitching staff led by senior right-hander Trent Sellers, whose 93 strikeouts rank second in the conference and 26th in the country. 
  • Arizona State has dropped three straight Pac-12 series (Oregon, Stanford and USC) but collected enough wins in the first-half of their league schedule to secure a berth in the tournament for a second straight year. The Sun Devils need just one win against UCLA to guarantee a top-six seed. Overall, ASU has won five Pac-12 series in 2023 while its 29 wins are already two more than its total from last spring. 
  • Oregon's hot streak hit a buzzsaw the last two weekends with series losses to the two of the hottest teams in the league in USC and Washington, but its resume remains strong with series wins over Stanford and Arizona State this year and an 11-game winning streak at one point midseason, marking the program's longest since the 1964 team won 12 straight. Oregon's long ball total hit 84 last weekend, extending its new program record for most home runs in a single season.
  • California secured its first sweep at UCLA since 1991 on May 7 to keep pace for a tournament berth, but missed out on securing a spot after dropping two of three to Washington State last weekend. The Bears still have a shot at playing next week if it can sweep the red-hot Huskies on the road or hope for some other results on the weekend to go in their favor.
  • Arizona's offense has been one of the best in the country, ranking in the top-15 in D1 in batting average (.318, 11th), hits (586, 8th), doubles (130, 3rd) and triples (27, T2nd) and is second in the Pac-12 in scoring (8.5 rpg, 19th). Arizona has multiple stars at the plate, with Mac Bingham leading the league in hits (77), Chase Davis' 17 home runs tied for the lead in the Pac-12 and Kiko Romero collecting a Pac-12-best 75 RBI (ranks sixth in the country). The Wildcats, however, will need to find a way to slow down a surging USC squad in order to make the tournament for a second straight year.
  • UCLA has had to lean heavily on their hurlers in 2023 as injuries in the field have limited the Bruins' offense in recent weeks. Senior right-hander Kelly Austin has been a bright spot with his 3.04 ERA ranking fourth overall in the conference. Despite four straight series losses, the Bruins need just two wins against Arizona State to see their name on the bracket in Scottsdale.  
  • Utah is not out of it yet either, but will need a sweep at home over Oregon and some favorable results around the league to reach Scottsdale for the first time. Redshirt junior Jayden Kiernan has been an offensive beast for the Utes, leading all Pac-12 hitters with a .407 average heading into the final weekend to go along with a 13-game hitting streak.
  • On April 17, the Pac-12 swept D1 Baseball's and the NCBWA's National Player and Pitcher of the Week awards, marking the first two from the Pac-12 to earn the honors this season. California's Kade Kretzschmar, the 2022 Ivy League Player of the Year and graduate transfer from Dartmouth, had a monster week for the Bears from April 10-16, hitting 15-for-21 (.714) with a pair of home runs, three doubles, 10 RBI, six runs scored, two walks and a stolen base to help Cal go 4-1 and take two of three at Utah. Oregon's Jace Stoffal dominated Stanford, allowing three hits and just four baserunners in a complete-game shutout in a 4-0 series-opening win. 
  • After his red-hot performance in April, Kretzschmar was named the NCBWA's Player of the Month, announced by the organization on May 3, after he hit .462 and had a Pac-12 best 36 hits, eight home runs and 12 multi-hit games over a 19-game stretch.
  • Washington's Kiefer Lord earn his second Pac-12 Pitcher of the Week honor this season on April 24, becoming the first UW pitcher to earn it more than once during the same season since Husky legend Tim Lincecum won it five times in 2006. 
  • During its series win over then- No. 21 Oregon State on the weekend of April 21, Arizona State became the first team since 2001 to score double digits against the Beavers in each game of the series, while it was the Sun Devils' first win over a ranked opponent since 2017.
  • Arizona State's sweep over rival Arizona on the weekend of March 24 was its first since 2019 and only its second since 2009.
  • Washington State has turned in some stellar performances during Pac-12 play in 2023. On April 16, the Cougars won a league series against Arizona in Pullman for the first time since 2009, while it was their first back-to-back series wins over the Wildcats since 2006-07. Earlier in the season, WSU's two-game sweep on the weekend of April 1-2 (game three of series was canceled due to weather/game two postponement) was its first series win over UCLA since 2017 and the Cougars opened Pac-12 play by taking two of three at Oregon State on the weekend of March 10, Washington State's first series win in Corvallis since 2009. While the Cougars have had some struggles as of late, a series win against California this weekend would give them a chance to still make the conference tournament for the first time.
  • Stanford's Rios set a Cardinal record and matched the Pac-12 record with 11 RBIs in a 24-9 Stanford victory over CSU Bakersfield on Sunday, March 5. The 11 RBIs matched the previous Pac-12 record of 11 set by UCLA's Bill Scott vs. Washington in a game that started on March 29, 1999 and was completed on March 30, 1999 due to rain.

2023 MLB OPENING DAY: Former Oregon State standout and the 2019 No.1 overall pick Adley Rutschman may have made his MLB debut for the Baltimore Orioles in 2022, but Thursday, March 30 marked his first Opening Day in the big leagues. Rutschman had a monster day, hitting a home run in his first at-bat and going 5-for-5 overall with 4 RBI in a 10-9 Baltimore win over Boston, joining Hall-of-Famers Billy Herman and Babe Ruth as the third player ever to go 5-5 and get multiple RBI on Opening Day. UCLA great Gerrit Cole made some history himself, recording the most strikeouts by a Yankee pitcher on Opening Day with 11 in New York's 5-0 shutout of the Giants. Rutschman and Cole highlight a total of 54 former Pac-12 stars on 2023 Opening Day rosters. It's the second-most players from a conference behind only the SEC (SEC 89, Pac-12 54, ACC 42, WCC 21, American 20).

CARDINAL PICKED TO REPEAT: For a second consecutive year the Pac-12 coaches took defending champion Stanford atop their preseason poll with the Cardinal receiving nine first-place votes for a total of 99 points.

UCLA collected the other two first-place votes to come in second with 90 points and Oregon State was in third with 77 points. Arizona (74 points) and Oregon (68 points) rounded out the top five in fourth and fifth, respectively. 

INAUGURAL PRESEASON ALL-CONFERENCE TEAM: For the first time in Pac-12 history, the conference announced a Preseason All-Pac-12 Team, voted on by the league’s coaches. 

Stanford led the way with eight selections. Preseason All-Americans Braden Montgomery (UTL), Ryan Bruno (LHP), Carter Graham (INF), Quinn Mathews (LHP) and Tommy Troy (INF) earned the honor along with Cardinal infielder Drew Bowser, outfielder Eddie Park and pitcher Joey Dixon.

The 32-person team also includes preseason All-Americans Travis Bazzana (INF) and Ben Ferrer (RHP) from Oregon State, Chase Davis (OF) from Arizona and pitcher Alonzo Tredwell of UCLA. 

Tredwell and UCLA teammate Cody Schrier (INF), both 2022 Freshman All-Americans, were two of six Bruins selected, which was second-most behind Stanford. 

FRESH (AND FAMILIAR) FACES:  The Pac-12 has a pair of new head coaches in 2023 - Washington’s Jason Kelly and USC’s Andy Stankiewicz - but neither are new to the West. 

Kelly in particular is no stranger to the Pac-12, returning to Washington to begin his head coaching career after previously spending seven years as the Huskies pitching coach from 2013-19 under Lindsay Meggs, who announced his retirement following the 2022 season. Kelly was a key part of UW’s first-ever trip to the Men’s College World Series in 2018 before stints as the pitching coach at Arizona State and last season at LSU. Kelly was also previously honored as the 2018 D1Baseball National Assistant Coach of the Year.

Stankiewicz, a former Major League Baseball player, came to USC last summer after a highly successful 11-year run at Grand Canyon in which he won five regular season Western Athletic Conference titles and was named the WAC Coach of the Year four times. Over the last two seasons, Stankiewicz guided Grand Canyon to its first ever NCAA Division I postseason appearance in 2021 then led the program to its first ever at-large bid this past season.

AMERICAN MADE: Two Pac-12 players were part of the 26-man roster for the 2022 Collegiate National Team that represented Team USA and finished in third place at Honkbalweek Haarlem last July at  Pim Mulier Stadium in Haarlem, Netherlands. The final squad was named after completing the 2022 Collegiate National Team Training Camp, a five-game intrasquad series played throughout North Carolina. The roster included RP Ryan Bruno (Stanford) and RP Ross Dunn (Arizona State). 

2023 PAC-12 BASEBALL TOURNAMENT: After an exciting inaugural event last May, the Pac-12 Baseball Tournament returns to Scottsdale Stadium May 23-27, 2023 for year two at the Spring Training home of the San Francisco Giants. The tournament will look different in 2023 after the Pac-12 coaches approved format changes during the offseason.

Switching from a double-elimination format to pool play, the top nine teams in the Conference standings will earn berths to the tournament. The teams will be split into three pools based on their regular season finish with the top team from each pool advancing to the semifinals. The fourth semifinal spot will be determined by the top record of the non-advancing teams, with any tiebreakers going to the higher seed.  

The champion will receive the Conference’s automatic bid to the NCAA Tournament. The Pac-12’s current agreement with the City of Scottsdale runs through 2024.
