That will come sometime shortly after 9:30 a.m. Monday morning, when the college baseball tournament selection begins airing on ESPN.
On Sunday, Arizona hit a two-run homer in the sixth inning to break a 1-1 tie and OSU couldn't get the bats going down the stretch. Still, OSU won three of its last four Pac-10 series including the final one over Arizona, and went 10-5 over its last 15 games to close the regular season.
The danger for the Beavs, and other teams who entered this weekend considered to be on the bubble, was if multiple upset winners of conference tournaments emerged, such as in leagues like the Big South, Mountain West,
Sun Belt and/or Southern Conference. But Southern Mississippi (35-22) was the lone conference tourney winner among those four who could be considered an upset.
With the Beavs' official RPI expected to finish in the high 20's, combined with their season résumé that includes a 4-1 record over rival Oregon, virtually every projection has them now making the postseason.
The Pac-10 baseball record for postseason teams is five, a mark that figures to not only go by the wayside but be shattered on Monday.
With Arizona winning today, and Cal posting a series win over Oregon, it's looking very possible the Pac-10 could see eight teams from the conference invited to the field of 64.
Beavs drop finale but win series, to play on?
