This Week in Pacific 12 Baseball (Weekend of May 18 Edition)


Arizona has the opportunity to keep up with Oregon as both teams enter a series with weaker opponents. California follows right behind the Wildcats by a game back.

However, the Ducks are the only one to host a series. As long as they can at least win the series, they will be in the drivers’ seat to a Pac-12 championship and a potential top eight seed in the upcoming NCAA tournament.
