This Week In The Pac-10, Apr. 1: Pac-10 baseball schedule, standings and rankingsby Scott Terrell on Mar. 31, 2010, under Sports
You want Pac-10 baseball news? You want an Arizona Wildcats preview? You want smooth HTML tables? We’ve got you covered!
The first full weekend of Pac-10 play is here. With Oregon bringing baseball back last year it’s great to be able to have all 10 teams playing conference series at the same time.
First, where we’ve been. The Pac-10 standings:
Next, where we are (in the polls):

Now for where we’re going. All series this week are Thursday through Saturday due to the Easter holiday.
ARIZONA (20-5 / 2-1) at Cal (13-10 / 0-3)
Both the UA and Cal blew a late lead on Sunday. The Bears are out to prove they’re not as bad as ASU made them look.
ASU (23-0 / 3-0) at
Oregon (18-8 / 1-2)
Can the Ducks build on the momentum of their thrilling comeback win? Can ASU lose?
OSU (16-5 / 0-0) at
USC (13-12 / 1-2)
The Beavers were cruising right along until getting swept in a double header at home against Long Beach. Are they a Pac-10 contender or, like Arizona, did they build this impressive record with a light non-conference schedule?
Stanford (12-7 / 2-1) at UCLA (21-0 / 0-0)
The series of the week. If UCLA is still undefeated after this weekend it means they’re really, really, really good.
WSU (14-7 / 0-0) at Washington (12-10 / 0-0)
The unseries of the week. Sorry, U-Dub, you’re not playing Dallas Baptist anymore.
For the Cats these next six games (with a bonus seventh game a week from Monday) will be the first road games of the year. Kurt Heyer’s sterling numbers and his classmates’ pretty batting stats will be put to the test. You have to think splitting the six Pac-10 games would be considered a success and then you try and regain the home field magic.
The UA game times are 2:30 p.m. Pacific/Arizona on Thursday and Friday, and 12 noon on Saturday. There are no night games in Berkeley because Cal’s Evans Diamond has no lights.
Can the Cats play lights-out under a foreign sun?
