UPDATE: Tonight's game was rained out and a double header will begin at 1:00 tomorrow with game 2 starting 40 minutes after the conclusion of game 2 . . . until more rain ruins our fun again!
Today Tomorrow begins the toughest series of the series for the Bears. For a preview of the action CGB went to Building The Dam, which has some of the best college baseball coverage in the entire internets. You can read my answers to their questions about Cal here. Thanks to ConnorOSU for answering our questions!
But after some inconsistent pitching by Wetzler (Who was then officially the #3 guy after Osich moved up) and an injury to Booser, James Nygren and Wetzler began to share the 3rd spot. Usually, it is as simple as a gut feeling by Coach Pat Casey on who to start on Sunday.
I think most Beaver fans have confidence in whoever takes the mound on Sunday. Sure, Wetzler and Nygren have been inconsistent, but outside of UCLA's Adam Plutko, who in the nation has an all-around solid Sunday starter?
I keep seeing Oregon St. referred to as the ‘surprise team’ of the year. I have a hard time being surprised when former back-to-back champs play good baseball. How surprised have you been by OSU’s great play?
Friday's game should be a pitcher's duel with two of the best Friday-night guys in the Pac-10 going head to head. I do like Oregon State though because we always seem to win on Friday's in Corvallis.
On Saturday, it's impossible not to pick Josh Osich after the performance he turned in last weekend, but in the series finale, I'll take California. I think we will see a sense of desperation from the Golden Bears like we saw from UCLA last Sunday, and plus, Cal is just too talented not to get out of Corvallis with at least one win.
