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.
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.
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.
LiL Lep would be proud. Oregon State center fielder Max Gordon robbed Oregon's Ryon Healy of extra bases with a fantastic twisting, leaping catch in the bottom of the fifth inning of last night's... Full story at Bob's Blitz ~ http://www.bobsblitz.com
IT WAS A good old fashioned pitcher's duel. Unfortunately for Oregon State, it didn't start on their end until the third inning. The Ducks scored three runs in the first two innings and OSU was unable to get untracked at the plate in a 3-0 loss to Oregon in the first of a three game series. The two schools are now tied atop the standings in the Pac-12.
It comes down to this. Civil War Series, baseball style.
This weekend the Oregon State Beavers (41-8 overall, 20-4 league) travel to Eugene to take on the Oregon Ducks (42-11, 19-5 respectively). With only a one game edge in the loss column, the Beavers need to keep their twelve game winning streak going to win the conference title. And a possible national seed for the NCAA Tournament...
I was hoping it would come to this.
Early this baseball season, people were talking about how good both Oregon State and Oregon would be in 2013.
While looking at the hot starts for both the Ducks and Beavers, fans would cast one eye on the schedule and see the series between the teams May 17-19 at PK Park. The question that usually went unspoken was ... would a Pac-12 Championship...
Mikah and Alijah Holder currently hold six and seven scholarship offers, respectively. The latest university to throw its hat into the ring is Yale, which had a coach visit them earlier this week, as did Arizona, Oregon State and U.C. Davis. Meanwhile, Coach Howell of BYU has been in contact the twins, who are still trying to see if they can make it out to BYU for Junior Day on June 8.
There's a certain civility to the Civil War baseball rivalry between Oregon and Oregon State.
Since the Ducks brought back baseball in 2009, the rivalry with the Beavers has been growing. But this season both teams are nationally ranked in the top 10 and sit 1-2 in the Pac-12 standings.
The outcome of this weekend's Civil War series between the two teams could lead to the...

Seeking to overcome the loss of transfer point guard Ahmad Starks and not signing former commit LJ Westbrook, the Oregon State Beavers added a point guard recruit for the 2013 recruiting cycle on Thursday, landing Canadian Malcolm Duvivier. His mother posted a Tweet with the news. Super Excited and Proud! Congrats to my son Malcolm Duvivier who has signed his [...]
IN A BASEBALL SEASON filled with big moments for Oregon State, the next four games between the Beavs and Oregon could be the biggest of all. OSU heads to Eugene for a three-game series starting on Friday, with the fourth game against the two teams slated for Monday in Corvallis. The Pac-12 title and postseason position may well lie in the balance.
Oregon State badly needed a point guard to come in, in 2013 and they found a good one late.
OREGON STATE defensive tackle Blake Harrah, a redshirt senior, is leaving the Beavers' football program due to health reasons, the Oregonian reported on Tuesday. Harrah was plagued by knee injuries during his time at OSU after transferring from Saddleback JC in 2011.
OREGON STATE HAS won just about every which way you can this season. On Sunday, the No. 5 Beavs did it again, holding off a Stanford rally to win 5-4 and post a road sweep at Sunken Diamond over the No. 25 Cardinal.
OREGON STATE HAS another series win in their pocket, now they'll go for the sweep. The No. 5 Beavs knocked off Stanford for the second straight day, 10-4, on Saturday. Dylan Davis came up big at the plate for OSU, driving five runs. The win sent the Beavers to their fifth consecutive series victory at Sunken Diamond. Oregon State is 11-3 against the Cardinal in California during that stretch.
NO. 25 STANFORD had been pointing to this weekend for a while, the chance to play host to No. 5 Oregon State, notch a few wins and improve their standing. Oregon State, however, just kept rolling along when the two teams opened their three-game series.
It has always been the tale that teams who peak at the end of the season are the ones who usually end up as champions. Playing well in the end is where it counts. So, here we go Beavers, here we go.
Last weekend, Oregon State’s baseball team swept California in three games down in Corvallis. They followed that up with a mid-week victory over the Portland Pilots and now have...

ANOTHER SERIES, ANOTHER sweep for No. 5 Oregon State. Jake Rodriguez, Danny Hayes and Tyler Smith all homered in the finale, leading the Beavs to a 6-4 win over California in front of 3,121 fans at Goss Stadium.
Oregon State 2014 quarterback commit Nick Mitchell was one of the top signal-callers at the Chicago Elite 11 Friday.
Gary Payton is a legend in the Northwest. He is the last glowing image of Oregon State basketball success on the big stage. He’s half of the tandem – along with Shawn Kemp – that lives on as the torchbearers of a forlorn franchise.
Now, he has a chance to extend his influence to Portland Trail Blazer faithful.
According to The Oregonian’s Jason Quick, Payton wants...
The Kentucky Derby is this weekend and if the Oregon State Beavers baseball team was in a horse race, one could say they are in the final straightaway heading for the far turn. In their peripheral vision is a slight glimpse of the finish line. Longshot? Not likely. Destiny’s darling? Let’s hope so. Flowers, banners, trophy and last but certainly not least, the dog pile. Keeping...
The Pittsburgh Steelers drafted Oregon State wide receiver Markus Wheaton in the third-round of the 2013 NFL draft on Saturday and on Monday his college position coach Brent Brennan was on ESPN 970 to talk about his former player with my podcast co-host David Todd.
Brennan was first asked to describe the kind of player that the Steelers drafted.
"He's an outstanding human...

CORVALLIS–It was an eventful end to the spring for Oregon State. In the spirit of not giving away too many secrets, Mike Riley kept the spring game strikingly similar to the practice regimen the Beavers have abided by these last four weeks – a lot of running and short, quick pass plays. Perhaps the biggest difference was the increased focus on young players, and a few stood out...
