OSU climbs in a pair of national rankings
March 14, 2005
CORVALLIS, Ore. - Oregon State moved up to No. 22 in the Baseball America magazine national rankings that were released Monday and received votes worth 26th place in the USA Today/ESPN Top 25 coaches poll. That represents a climb of one spot in the Baseball America poll from a week ago and a jump of two spots in the coaches poll for the Beavers (13-3 overall).
OSU slipped two spots to 30th place in the Collegiate Baseball newspaper national rankings, and the National Collegiate Writers Association national rankings will be released Tuesday. The Beavers won two of three games at the Yellow Book USA Classic this past weekend, beating Cal State-Northridge 4-1, losing to host Pepperdine 9-4 and beating Winthrop 8-2.
This coming weekend, Oregon State hosts Sacramento State in a non-league series at Goss Stadium at Coleman Field. Games will be Friday at 4 p.m., Saturday at 1 p.m. and Sunday at 1 p.m. and all three games can be heard on www.osubeavers.com.
The series starts a stretch of a dozen straight games within the state for OSU, with 11 of those 12 at home. After playing Sacramento State, the Beavers host Dallas Baptist from March 24-26, Brigham Young from March 28-29 and California from April 1-3 to open the Pacific-10 season. The only road game in that stretch is March 22 at Portland.
