This Week in Pac-12 Baseball

Download Complete Release

• Six Pac-12 teams are ranked in Baseball America's top 25 poll: Arizona (4), UCLA (5), Stanford (6), Oregon State (20), Oregon (22) and Arizona State (24).

• No. 4 Arizona has been named College Baseball Insider.com's Team of the Week after sweeping then-No. 2 Stanford over the weekend. On Friday, the Wildcats scored four runs in the bottom of the ninth to come back from a 7-4 deficit and defeat the Cardinal, 8-7. Pac-12 Pitcher of the Week Konner Wade carried a no-hitter into the sixth inning of game two of the series on Saturday. The Arizona sophomore allowed three hits, one walk and one earned run in his first career complete game as the 'Cats clinched the series victory, 4-2.

• Three Conference series resulted in sweeps last weekend: Arizona over Stanford in Tucson, where the Wildcats handed Stanford its first series loss of the season; Oregon over Arizona State in Eugene, where Ducks RHP Alex Keudell pitched the first complete-game shutout of the senior's career on Saturday; and UCLA over Utah in Salt Lake City, where Sunday's 16-0 victory gave the Bruins their largest margin of victory in a conference shutout since May 7, 1983, when they dropped Arizona, 20-0. UCLA junior outfielder Beau Amaral led off that game with a home run, becoming the first Bruin to do so since Brandon Crawford in 2006.

• Arizona's Wade, Oregon's Keudell and California junior third baseman Mitch Delfino have been named to College Baseball 360's Primetime Performers Honor Roll for Week Seven. Delfino provided three RBI in a 7-6 win at Fresno State last Tuesday and contributed a home run and an RBI single to secure a 6-5 series clincher against then-No. 18 Texas on Sunday.

• Oregon sophomore RHP Jimmie Sherfy leads the nation in strikeouts per nine innings with 13.66 (46 strikeouts over 30.3 innings pitched). Stanford junior LHP Brett Mooneyham comes in at 14th nationally with 11.55 (53 strikeouts over 41.3 innings pitched).

• The No. 4 Wildcats rank fifth among Division I schools in batting average at .327. Indiana State ranks first at .332. Four of the Conference's top 10 hitters belong to Arizona: Seth Mejias-Brean (.393, 6th), Alex Mejia (.386, 7th), Robert Refsnyder (.382, 8th) and Joey Rickard (.361, 10th).
