25.May.2010 Baseball Briefing
The Beavers head into the final weekend needing to win 3 of 4 to make the post season.
Key game: Wednesday versus Oregon. If the Beavs win, I think they take 2 of 3 from ‘zona and get it done. The Wildcats are clawing for their lives, too, so it won’t be easy.
The Oregon game will be “worth less” (to voters) since it’s technically not a conference game, but if they do drop it they’d have to take 3 straight. That is tough. Beating Oregon leaves room for error, and that means relaxed players and better baseball. Hence, it’s the pivotal game, and the Ducks want revenge. Beaver beware.
2-2…that’s playing with fire. It might be enough, but my guess is if the Beavs go 2-2 and it’s 2008 all over again, and they’re the 65th team.
