House Divided

Reser Stadium on the campus of Oregon State University

Today is the 2016 Civil War game in Corvallis. We’ll be watching on TV from Ashland. With a Duck and a Beaver in the family, the game will finally become interesting for us. Even though the ramifications aren’t as large as the game in Washington, yesterday, this may actually be a decent game for once as OSU and UofO have identical conference records for the first time in ages.

I’ve actually never been in Reser Stadium, a fact I need to get corrected next season. Today’s photo is from my daughter’s dorm.

Last weekend’s trip to visit Whitman College and Oregon State University featured “between storms” conditions nearly the whole time. As a big fan of crazy clouds, I was pleased.

Even though I’ve lived in Oregon for almost 16 years, and had visited the state many times before that, this was my first time in Corvallis. This building on the OSU campus was awesome, especially with the dark clouds closing in. Turns out the building is a residence hall! They didn’t make dorms like this where I went to school…

Big Leaguer

I mentioned last year that Michael Conforto was selected by the Mets out of Oregon State. In just a year he has made the big league club. And his first two games have been fantastic! So far he is 4 for 7 with two doubles, two RBIs, four runs scored and a walk.

College World Series Regionals begin

Andrew Moore of the Oregon State Beavers

@AndrewG_23

For the 2015 season Andrew Moore was 7-2 with a 1.73 ERA during the regular season of his junior year. His last start was his best as he faced the minimum number of batters (27) in a complete game victory. The two batters who got hits off him were doubled up. At the college level a strike out to walk ratio of 2:1 is good. Andrew’s is over 5:1.

Unfortunately for Oregon State, only one Pac-12 team gets to host, and they finished second in the Pac-12 at 38-16-1 overall and 19-10-1 in Pac-12 play. OSU will travel to Dallas for games against two teams from Texas and VCU. Play begins Friday.

The Ducks finished sixth in the Pac-12 (37-23, 16-14), barely made the tournament, and will travel to Springfield, Missouri looking to upset three higher ranked teams.

Ducks drop out; Beavers still alive

Oregon State University – Kavin Keyes

@Kavin_Keyes3 Both of the Ducks’ teams had their seasons end yesterday. The softball team will likely end up ranked #3. The University of Oregon baseball team was eliminated at Regionals in a tough, come-from-behind victory for the other team. They will likely end up ranked about #20.

The #1 ranked Beavers of OSU need a win tonight (6/2/14) at home to advance to the Super Regionals against Oklahoma State. Game time is 8 p.m. PST, and you can watch the game on ESPNU.

Andrew Moore

@AndrewG_23 When we last checked in on Andrew Moore we saw that he had been improving on his fantastic Freshman year stats in the early going of the 2014 season. How has he done since?

While he still has good numbers (4-3, ERA below 2.90) his numbers have mostly dropped from his Freshman year. The season is about half over so maybe he can still finish strong. His strikeouts per 9 innings has gone up, and he hasn’t yet given up a home run so those are good signs.
