Tough loss. I listened to innings 7-9 in my backyard swimming with the oldest.

We had a 11am LL game. Two LL games in about 16 hours. :rolleyes:

The top of the ninth a killer for us. A walk then balk then walk then Sacrifice putting 2nd and 3rd with one out. Count goes 0-2 the Stanford pitcher hits our guy in the back. Bases loaded one out. Then Jordan KO the Hundly pops out. Uggggggg.

If we can win tomorrow and take this Series I think hosting a regional game should be there for us.

Game Recap (http://www.arizonaathletics.com/ViewArticle.dbml?DB_OEM_ID=1600&ATCLID=120767)

PALO ALTO, Calif. – Stanford’s Chris Minaker singled home Jim Rapoport from second base with two outs in the ninth inning, as the No. 22-ranked Cardinal defeated No. 8-ranked Arizona 5-4 at Sunken Diamond on Saturday.

The loss snapped Arizona’s three-game winning streak, dropped the Wildcats to 34-17 for the year and ended any hope of an outright Pac-10 championship after Oregon State defeated USC 10-7 on Saturday. Stanford improved to 31-20 overall and to 11-9 in the Pac-10.

Stanford’s Rapoport led off the bottom of the ninth with a base hit off of freshman Eric Berger (6-1). Arizona closer Mark Melancon retired pinch hitter Ryan Seawell and Chris Lewis for the first two outs in the inning before issuing an intentional walk to Adam Sorgi and surrendering the game-winning hit to Minaker.

Tied 4-4 in the ninth, Arizona had an opportunity to take the lead when it loaded the bases with one out and Pac-10 RBI-leader Jordan Brown and team home run leader Nick Hundley due up. Stanford’s Matt Manship struck out Brown and got Hundley to foul out to end the threat and keep the game knotted.

In addition to leaving the bases loaded in the ninth, the Wildcats squandered numerous scoring opportunities throughout the game and finished with 10 runners left on base, including six in scoring position.

The ninth-inning victory made a winner out of Stanford reliever Greg Reynolds (2-2)

Arizona and Stanford will pay the rubber game of the three-game series at 1 p.m. on Sunday. UA’s Sean Rierson will take the mound for the Wildcats.

Junior Trevor Crowe broke Todd Trafton’s school single season extra base hits record with a leadoff double in the first inning. The double gave Crowe 45 EBH on the year and marked the eighth time this season he has led off a game for Arizona with a two-bagger ... Nick Hundley hit his team-leading 14th home run of the year in the second inning. It was his 18th extra base hit in 20 Pac-10 games this season ... Jordan Brown hit a two-run homer in the fourth inning (No. 12 for the year). It was his first home run since April 19 at New Mexico.

Don't bet on it.

If I'm not mistaken, two teams on the West get to host for the subregional, and there's no way those spots don't go to Oregon State, the Pac-10 champ, and Fullerton, the nation's No. 1-ranked team (by Baseball America).

It would have taken a miraculous run to the conference title for the UA to host its own subregional at Sancet-Kindall. Today's loss killed that dream.

OSU is champ ?

OSU has to sweep SC to ensure a tie for the Pac 10.

PAC 10 offical website (http://www.pac-10.org/sports/m-basebl/spec-rel/051705aag.html)
"Winners of eight in a row, the Pac-10-leading No. 3 OREGON STATE Beavers host No. 21 USC this weekend in Corvallis. Should the Beavers come away with a sweep of the third-place Trojans, they would ensure themselves of at least a tie for the Pac-10 title."

OSU 5-4 over SC Fri.
OSU 10-7 over SC Sat.
Go SC for Sunday.

There is still a chance. A small one.

This is what I read:


>>Beavers Clinch Tie For Pac-10 Baseball Title
No. 5 OSU rallies to beat No. 20 Southern California, 10-7

May 21, 2005

CORVALLIS, Ore. - No. 5 Oregon State assured itself at least of at least a tie for the Pacific-10 baseball championship Saturday afternoon, rallying from a four-run deficit to beat No. 20 Southern California 10-7 at Goss Stadium at Coleman Field. The Beavers (41-8 overall, 19-4 Pac-10) used a seven-run fifth inning to earn their 10th straight win before a sellout crowd of 2,322.

OSU can wrap up sole possession of the title when it hosts the Trojans (33-18, 12-8) on Sunday at 12 noon in the Beavers' final game of the conference season.<<

This was also from the Daily Star:

>>The Wildcats also dropped four games behind first-place Oregon State in the win column of the Pac-10 standings and ended any chance of the UA winning the league championship.<<

Now that I think about it, it doesn't make that much sense. OSU would be 19-5 in the Pac-10 if its loses tomorrow. If the UA wins out, it will be 19-5 with a 2-1 series advantage.

Seems like an SC win over the Muffs and four straight wins for the Cats would give the UA the edge. Why is this so complicated?
