BIG PLAYS WERE all around as No. 4 Oregon State knocked off No. 6 Oregon 12-2 and took the series in Eugene. Michael Conforto went yard with a second inning grand slam to put the Beavs up 6-0. The very next inning, with the bases loaded, CF Max Gordon made a full extension diving stab on a deep ball that likely saved three runs. The win gave the Beavs a two-game edge in the Pac-12 standings.

Using a five-run eighth inning and a dominant pitching performance from freshman Andrew Moore, the No. 6 ranked Oregon State Beavers (42-9, 21-5) shut out rival No. 10 ranked Oregon (43-12, 20-6) at PK Park, 9-0 on Saturday afternoon at PK Park.
THIS ONE WAS BIG. No. 4 Oregon State's 9-0 win over No. 6 Oregon means the worst that can happen after the three-game series in Eugene is that the Beavs will remain tied atop the Pac-12 with a game to go against the two teams -- in Corvallis. And if OSU wins on Sunday, they take a commanding position.
JUST HOW MUCH of a statement did Oregon State make this weekend? Almost all of the top teams in the baseball polls had an abbreviated schedule this weekend, but most of them still lost a game. Will Oregon State's 2-1 road series win, over another highly ranked squad in Oregon, move them up? The best chance for said movement would seem to be in the Baseball America poll.
