Even a massive lead in the ninth inning wouldn't stop Oregon State center fielder Max Gordon, the Pac-12's maestro of defensive web gems, from making a spectacular diving catch in Monday's 11-4 Beaver victory over Louisville.
Pitching and defense.
Analysts always seem to undervalue the critical importance of these two baseball facets when they forecast the College World Series. So naturally, LSU came into Sunday's Omaha-opening contest as the favorite against UCLA. But the Bruins, experts in both vital areas, executed perfectly and rode the Tigers' mistakes to a 2-1 victory in another classic Pac-12-SEC showdown.
Play that game in any other college baseball park, and Oregon State would be celebrating a 7-5 win courtesy Danny Hayes' two-out, two-strike walk-off home run.
Unfortunately, that did not happen in the cavernous confines of Omaha's TD Ameritrade Park.
The second round of the 113th U.S. Open is not quite in the books, so while the cut has not been made one thing is for sure: Washington's Cheng-Tsung Pan and Cal's Michael Kim are in serious contention for the major championship -- both are in the top 10 with Pan one stroke off the lead and Kim two shots back. The top 60 plus ties will move on to the third and fourth rounds at Merion Golf Club in Ardmore, Pa.
Five golfers who competed in the Pac-12 this year began play at the 113th U.S. Open Championship on Thursday at Merion Golf Club in Pennsylvania, and Washington's Chris Williams impressed early on with a 1-under through 10 holes. Due to two rain delays that lasted a combined four hours and 15 minutes, most golfers will have to finish their first round on Friday.
Despite having strong roots on the East Coast, Jonathan Leess’ allegiance to the Pac-12 Conference started early on in his adult life.
The Pac-12 Networks’ new Senior Vice President of Production Planning and Operations grew up on the East Coast and attended New York University. But after he moved in with childhood friend Warren Grafstein immediately after college, he became a West Coast sports fan.
