Rating: 5.0/5 (1 vote cast)

Folks asked for my take on UCSB. I haven't seen them this year, but I saw them in-person quite a bit last year, and they were mediocre. I don't fear them at all because great pitching will shut down decent hitting. UCSB's pitching is bad (4.01 team ERA), and they don't play well on the road. Beavs should be fine.
Cliff has a writeup you can read here. I'd say it's accurate.

Here's the schedule:

05/31/13 vs. Texas A&M vs. UC Santa Barbara Corvallis, Ore. 12:05 p.m. PT
  vs. Texas-San Antonio Corvallis, Ore. 5:00 p.m. PT
06/01/13 TBD Corvallis, Ore. TBA

    Kansas State can swing the bat but Wichita State's pitching and defense has been abysmal. Making little league mistakes. Still think Arkansas comes out of that regional but Kansas State's offense is impressive.

      Their pitcher Mengden is having one of those Schultzy types of days today.  Lots of wild pitches, a balk, fell off the mound at one point and UCSB getting several hits.  Already got pulled in the 4th.  5-1 UCSB

      Sims was asked to pitch too long in a game which was too big at a venue which was bigger than he was used to.
      At that, the Beavs nearly made up for all the cards stacked against Sims. They didn’t force him to make as many pitches as they could have.

      Excellent theory, that not giving up an out when ya only have three left.  However, with Peterson's skills/record turning sac bunts into singles, he may  be the exception which (generally) proves the rule.

          ESPN got something right on their tournament selection show, when the hosts questioned the Ducks national seed more than once due to their lack of hitting.  Also, I'm too lazy to find the link (on Oregon Live somewhere), but interesting article about the lack of attendance at PK Park for the regionals with the writer specualting it's due to Oregon's boring brand of baseball under Horton.  Basic premise,one base at a time may be great for the purists, but it ain't gonna fly with Duck fan base who need instant gratification a la Football and to some extent Basketball.

            I think it has more to do with the unwillingness of the large Portland fanbase to make the time comittment to either basketball or baseball.  A two hour Thursday night basketball game becomes a seven hour slog and a baseball game… who knows, could be eight hours plus the possibility of freezing cold weather. 

            The population of Eugene simply doesn't have the affluence to soley support either basketball or baseball, with the least expensive tickets in the $15-20 range.  JB

    Nice job by the Beavs to escape with a win once again. I'll take 2 wins despite not playing well. However, Smith, Conforto and Rodriguez have got to start hitting. Just 2 of 23 in the regional combined, Jake is 1 for his last 18 overall. If the Beavers get those three going, they'll be extremely tough to beat.

    Illini get screwed out of the tying run, getting it taken off the board on a very questionable call. Then proceed to have an epic meltdown in the last two innings. They should have beaten Vandy. Coach makes some really dumb decisions and players make some really boneheaded plays. Vandy can really swing the bats. Impressive line up that will make you pay for mistakes.

        I should probably clairfy, those were the keys to winning baseball games from my high school coach. Timely hitting is the tricky one of the three because it's pretty arbitrary, my take on it is getting hits when you absolutely need it.  And so far this regional we have a done a good job, but that first inning Wetzler was getting hit hard, Conforto misplayed a ball, and of course leaving men on base.

      Never happen, but how creative would it be to put Hendrix in to run for JRod.  Espo has shown good D, but bringing him in cold is not at all likely.

    How 'bout that, Wetzler a pretty easy 1-2-3 inning.  On to the ninth, still Beavs up 3-1
    Peterson to lead off the Beavs t9.

    Seems not so long ago we watched Hayes go through a slump, now he comes around with 3 RBI's today and great performances lately.

    His RBI single here makes it 4-1 Beavs with runners on 2 and 3, one out for Barnes.

    http://www.usatoday.com/story/sports/ncaaf/2013/06/03/pac-12-limiting-contact-football/2384731/

     

    Pac 12 to set new rules in July which will limit the amount of full contact practices the teams can conduct each week.  Wonder how this will help/hurt recruiting if it's not a policy adopted by every conference?  You have to think some players would like the limited contact and the toll it takes on their bodies over the course of a career, but teams will have a hard time adjusting to full speed in game situations if they don't practice the game the way it's played.

    I'm all for protecting the players, but at what point does it turn into flag football?
