23.Mar.2012 Baseball: Arizona @ Oregon State (Game 1)
This weekend will present an interesting test for the Beavers' pitching staff. Arizona (ranked #5) has legit mashers in Robert Refsnyder, Alex Mejia, and Seth Mejias-Brean. The Beavers have some mashers of their own, though. Tyler Smith has been impressive. I compared him last week to Michael Young of the Rangers. He's somehow become that type of hitter. Conforto and Davis have been excellent, as advertised.
Wetzler, Child, and Fry will get the nods and face Heyer (4-1, 1.23), Wade (3-0, 2.97), and Farris (2-1, 3.94).
This series will come down to which team gets more quality starts, which makes me lean Arizona taking 2 of 3.
Game time is 5:35PT.
