Pac-12 Baseball Weekend Recap: Super Regional Edition


This past weekend, the Pac-12 hosted three super regionals and had a fourth team on the road. Number two national seed, UCLA, and Arizona advanced to the College World Series. Oregon and Stanford had their seasons end.

Los Angeles Super Regional – UCLA (47-14) and Adam Plutko trailed 2-1 through the first 5 ½ innings until the Bruins offense struck for five runs against TCU. Plutko went seven innings, allowing just two runs on seven hits in the 6-2 win. In game two, UCLA never trailed and Nick Vander Tuig went six, getting enough runs support in a 4-1 CWS clinching win.

Eugene Super Regional – Oregon (46-19) committed three errors in game one against Kent State. If not for a great defensive play by the Flashes, the Ducks might have completed the comeback but lost 7-6. In game two, Oregon bounced back to win 3-2 after trailing 2-0 scored three runs in the seventh innings. In the third game Kent State again jumped up 2-0 before Oregon tied the game up. The Flashes turned a leadoff walk into the game winning run on a walkoff bloop single.
