After The Ducks (24-8, 9-3 Pac 12) took care of business on Tuesday against #6 Oregon State(25-6, 7-2 Pac 12), they find themselves in First Place in the Pac 12 Conference as they hit the road for a three game series this weekend at California. Oregon and Cal have split the six games they have played since 2009 and Coach Horton’s club swept the Bears last season in Eugene.
The Ducks have flown south and are in the middle of an eight game road trip that started last weekend at Arizona State and continues this weekend in Berkeley. Oregon will face Portland up north next Tuesday before next weekend’s home series vs UCLA at PK Park.
Cal(16-16, 5-7 Pac12) is looking to get back to winning after being swept last weekend by Defending National Champion Arizona in three games. Junior catcher Andrew Knapp leads the Bears on offense. He leads the team with a .342 average, nine doubles with four home runs and 24 RBIs. Junior First Baseman Devon Rodriguez is another one to look out for with Cal. For the season he is hitting .297 with five doubles, four home runs and a team-high 26 RBIs.
