    OREGON STATE (5-2, 0-0): JR RHP Greg Peavey turned in a phenomenal performance,  throwing his first-career shutout in a 1-0 victory over Tennessee, earning Pac-10 Pitcher of the Week honors as well as the Golden Spikes Spotlight Player of the Week. Peavey scattered three hits, stuck out a career-high nine batters and did not allow a Volunteer base runner to get past second base. He lowered his ERA from 3.60 to 0.64 and opponents are now batting .149 against him.  

    STANFORD (4-3, 0-0): After jumping out to a 4-0 start, the best start since the 2000 CWS season, the Cardinal were swept by No. 3 Texas.
