Roundup: Game 7's for OSU, Stanford, UW baseball
Three Pac-12 teams remain in the championship hunt in baseball, including top-seeded Oregon State. It has a game 7 (of the regional) against UC Irvine Monday night in large thanks to Scott Schultz’s two-hit complete-game shutout of the Anteaters Sunday night. Jason Quick of The Oregonian writes that Schultz saved Oregon State’s season, but it wasn’t his most impressive performance (raising a daughter, maintaining a relationship with his girlfriend/mother of his daughter, going to school and pitching all at once is).
Stanford and Indiana will play for all the marbles Monday as well, and this is because Wayne Taylor’s pinch-hit homer kept Stanford alive Sunday. The blast helped Stanford upend Indiana 10-7, which came after Stanford’s 12-4 win over Youngstown State earlier in the day.
Washington is the other baseball team still kicking, but men’s crew won its fourth straight IRA title Sunday so that’s what we’re gonna link, ya feel me?
The Pac-12 is completely out of the softball season now that Oregon’s season came to a close with a 2-0 loss to No. 2 Alabama Sunday.
