Pac-12 Softball Facts

• SERIES TIME: The Utes were the first team to take a series from ARIZONA STATE. Utah won two out of three games and claimed their second Pac-12 series in a row.

• TOP TEN WIN: Oregon State claimed their first win on the road against a top-10 team in six years when the Beavers defeated then-No. 10 CALIFORNIA 1-0 last Sunday. It is the first win at Cal for OSU since 2008.

• RAIN RAIN GO AWAY: The Cardinal and Huskies had to fight the rain this past weekend to be able to complete their three game series. Their first game was rained out Friday and was then rescheduled as a double-header on Saturday. The teams were only able to play on game Saturday and pushed the other game back again to Sunday. Finally on Sunday the teams were able to complete a doubleheader but not without a rain delay during play.

• NO SWEEP WEEK: There was not a single sweep in Pac-12 play this week with every team claiming at least one victory.

Going into last week's games Utah was holding the 11th ranked Pac-12 spot and ASU was ranked second behind OREGON.

• MERCY RULE: UCLA posted their first mercy-rule win against then-No. 22 ARIZONA since 2005 and their first in Tucson since 1999. The Bruins posted a 9-1, six inning triumph over the Wildcats last Saturday.
