Cal Baseball vs. No.2 Oregon State Friday Gamethread

Bears hope to ambush No.2 OSU Beavers this weekend - Cal Baseball Facebook

Bears face a tough opponent this weekend in the 2nd ranked Oregon State Beavers. The Golden Bears still need to basically win all their remaining series to make it to the NCAA postseason.

California Golden Bears (19-21, 7-11) vs. No.2 Oregon State Beavers (31-8, 14-4)

When: 7 PM PT

Radio: KALX (90.7 FM)

Game Update: Twitter (@Cal_Baseball)

This is a bit of a deja vu. For the second time in three weeks, the Golden Bears welcome the Pac-12 leading team to Evans Diamond. After being swept by the Washington Huskies in 3 close games two weeks ago, the Bears will try to have a much better fate against the Oregon State Beavers, who are also ranked No.2 in the country.

For the Bears to make it to the postseason, they really can't afford to drop any series, more importantly, they cannot afford to be swept in any series. Fortunately for the Bears, the team already have had 8 wins over ranked team under its belt for the season. This includes a road win over Cal Poly. These games being at home will hopefully allow the Bears to steal one or two this weekend and keep their post season hope alive.

Bears are coming off winning 2 out of 3 at Stanfurd last weekend and then survive a nerve-wrecking 1-0 win on Tuesday over USF.

Here are your potential lineup for the weekend:

By the way, this is the one time that you don't mind being mugged near Evans Diamond.

I don't think the Mug has any logo on it, but it is still a pretty sharp looking cup (not to mention a fun video starring Derek Campbell playing a pitcher).
