LEADING OFF:  It’s a Top 25 matchup between in-state rivals in Corvallis this weekend as #24 OREGON visits #10 OREGON STATE.  The Ducks offense has been red hot, scoring 7+ runs in 5 straight games.  Jacob Walsh was named NBCWA Co-National Player of the Week last week after a 4-game span that saw him go 12-17 with 4 home runs, 4 doubles, 8 RBI and 8 runs scored.  The Beavers are 19-1 at home this season and have also homered in 22 straight games.  Dallas Macias has had a hot bat the last 3 games, going 6-11 with 5 RBI including a 2 homer game at Cal on Sunday.

#20 ARIZONA enters the weekend winners of 10-straight conference games, their longest ever and the longest in the Pac-12 since Oregon State won 10 in a row in 2019.  Shortstop Mason White has 20 RBI in the last 14 games, hitting .333 in that span.  The Wildcats will visit a WASHINGTON team that has won their last 2 home conference series. The Huskies put up 13 runs in the 8th inning on Tuesday to turn a 3-1 deficit into a 14-3 win.  Cam Clayton has hit safely in 9 straight games (16-35, .457) with 9 runs scored and 11 RBI.

The hottest team in the conference is CALIFORNIA, winners of 9 straight overall and coming off their 3rd sweep of the season & first sweep of a Top 5 team since 2016.   Seth Gwynn followed up on his Pac-12 Player of the Week honor on Monday with another 3 hits and 2 runs scored in Tuesday’s win at Pacific.  The Bears get Bay Area rival STANFORD this weekend, who are coming off a series win over Oregon.  Trevor Haskins has hit safely in 7 straight games and 16 of his last 17, raising his average from .197 to .311.

UTAH enters their weekend series with UCLA tied for 2nd place, just 2 games behind Arizona.  Core Jackson has been red hot the last 5 games, 13-26 (.500) with 11 RBI and 8 runs scored, as he leads the Pac-12 in conference play with a .408 AVG.  The Bruins hit 4 home runs on Tuesday, including the first multi-homer game for freshman Roch Cholowsky.

Just 2 and a half games out of first, USC hits the desert this weekend for a series with ARIZONA STATE.  Austin Overn has multiple hits in 6 of the last 7 games, and the sophomore is just 1 triple away from tying the Trojans career record of 20.  The Sun Devils are coming off their first sweep of UCLA since 2010, with Jacob Tobias hitting 3 home runs with 9 RBI in those 3 games.

WASHINGTON STATE is the lone Pac-12 squad in non-conference play this weekend as they host a 25-win Fresno State squad.  Cole Cramer has a 5-game hitting streak (9-18, .500) with 7 runs scored.
