    PAC-10 TEAM NOTES

    ARIZONA (6-4, 0-0): After just playing in one extra-inning game last season, the Wildcats have already played three extra-inning games through 10 games. SO C Jett Bandy hit .550 as Arizona took two of three against No. 18 Cal State Fullerton. Bandy leads the club in nearly all major categories, including runs scored (15), hits (20), batting average (.564), doubles (5), home runs (4), RBI (13), batting average (.465), slugging percentage (.860) and on-base percentage (.531). 

    ARIZONA STATE (11-0, 0-0): The Sun Devils pushed their record to 11-0 with four wins at the Coca-Cola Classic in Surprise, Ariz. SO 2B Zack MacPhee ranks first in the league in on-base percentage (.638), runs scored (15), RBI (16), triples (7) and total bases (40). He ranks second in slugging percentage (1.143) and hits (22). Last season Arizona’s Bobby Coyle led the Pac-10 with seven triples on year. Through 11 games, MacPhee has already matched that number.   

    CALIFORNIA (7-3, 0-0): JR RHP Kevin Miller earned his first-career Pac-10 Pitcher of the Week after limiting No. 17 Arkansas to four hits and no runs in 6.0 innings. It was the fifth shutout of the season for the Golden Bears. As a team, the Bears rank third in the league in batting average (.355), slugging percentage (.523) and RBI (77). 

    OREGON (9-5, 0-0): The Ducks swept Fresno State 4-0, locking up their first sweep in the modern era, and first since 1980. Last week, SR C Eddie Rodriguez went 11-for-16 for a .688 batting average. He also had a .875 slugging percentage and had 14 total bases. SO INF KC  Serna leads the Conference with 23 hits. 

    OREGON STATE (7-3, 0-0): The Beavers went 2-1 in the Coca-Cola Classic in Surprise, Ariz. JR LHP Tanner Robles spun 7.2 innings of scoreless baseball in a 9-0 victory against Utah Valley. He recorded nine strikeouts and did not allow a walk. FR DH Matt Boyd hit his first-career home run in a 6-4 loss to No. 11 Arizona State. 

    STANFORD (7-4, 0-0): The Cardinal won the first two games of the UC Santa Barbara series in its last at-bats, both times after trailing. JR 1B Jonathan Kaskow’s pinch-hit single in the ninth won Friday’s contest, while JR INF Jake Schlander connected on a solo homer on the first pitch of the 11th-inning to take the series.

    UCLA (9-0, 0-0): SO RHP Gerrit Cole improved to 3-0 on the season. He allowed only  one run and two hits in 7.0 innings, recording nine strikeouts without issuing a walk as UCLA defeated Nebraska, 13-1. He becomes the first Bruin pitcher to go 3-0 in his first three starts in a single season since 2004 when Casey Janssen did so.  

    USC (5-6, 0-0): SO P Andrew Triggs went 7.1 innings and struck out a career-high nine batters, but did not figure into the decision in USC’s 3-2 loss to New Mexico on Friday night.  SO INF Ricky Oropesa leads the team in slugging percentage (.571), on-base percentage (.439), runs scored (11), doubles (4) and home runs (4). 

    WASHINGTON (6-5, 0-0): SO RHP Andrew Kittredge struck out 10 over 7.2 innings as the Huskies defeated Long Bech State, 6-4, to win the series weekend over LBSU. SO OF Caleb Brown leads the club in batting average (.385), slugging percentage (.641), on-base percentage (.489), runs scored (10), hits (15) home runs (2) and triples (2). 

    WASHINGTON STATE (9-1, 0-0): This season, Cougar pinch hitters are a combined 10-for-22 (.455), while the bullpen is 3-0 with three saves and a 2.68 earned run average. As a team, WSU ranks near the top in many statistical categories in the Pac-10, including second in runs scored (88) and doubles (28), third in on-base percentage (.428), and fourth in batting average (.349) and slugging percentage (.506).
