#11 Oregon(22-6, 8-1 Pac 12) hits the road this week after sweeping Washington, Portland and Arizona last week. The Ducks are currently on a 7 game winning streak and are 15-3 in the friendly confines of PK Park. Oregon is 7-3 on the road and they look to improve that number this weekend.

Arizona State (15-8-1, 4-5 Pac 12) welcomes Oregon for a three game set this weekend. Coach Horton’s team swept the season series last year with the Sundevils. Junior Outfielder Casey Hoffman has heated up for the Arizona State. In last weekend’s series with UCLA he went 5-for-14 (.357) with six RBI, two home runs, two doubles and five runs scored. He finished the series with #4 UCLA last weekend  with a .929 slugging percentage and a .400 batting average.

On the mound for the Sundevils, the hot hand is currently Righthander Trevor Williams, who threw seven shutout innings last weekend against the Bruins, helping Arizona to a series opening win. He gave up eight hits, but stranded six runners on base. Williams also picked up his fourth win of the season.

Arizona State just finished a two game series with Wichita State and won both games as they head into the series with the Ducks this weekend.

Following a three game stint with Arizona This Weekend, Friday(6:30PT), Saturday(6:30PT), Sunday(12:30PT), Oregon heads to Corvallis for a showdown with Oregon State next Tuesday(4pm PT, Pac 12 Networks) and finish out the roadtrip at Cal and Portland. The Ducks return home on April 19th and welcome UCLA to PK Park.
