The win gave the Beavs a two-game edge in the Pac-12 standings.

And if OSU wins on Sunday, they take a commanding position.

BASEBALL: Poll gazing

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.
