The Pac 10 is winding down and we are currently up three games on Stanford, who played our instate rival Arizona this weekend and lost two out of three. Just this past weekend we faced the University of Washington in a home Pac 10 series. They came in with a good record and good pitching numbers across the board. We came out ready to play and ready to finish this stretch run strong. We were boosted by the return of Ike Davis, who had been rehabbing a rib injury. His return to our lineup brings back another big time weapon and presence. We took all three games from visiting Washington and put ourselves in place to control our own destiny for the Pac 10 championship.
This season has been flying by and I cannot believe we are coming in to the last Pac-10 series of my junior year. I remember back to my first series at Washington State during my freshman year and how anxious I was. Now, I can’t believe that we have just one weekend left and it’s winding down and we are one week from completing my third year in the Pac, let alone my college career. I’ve been trying not to think about the draft and just focus on winning every game day in and day out. Sometimes it can be hard though as p
eople are always asking how you are feeling and what are you going to do once
you are drafted. To be honest, I’d like to go out, win a national championship and finish what I started three years ago…then I can focus on everything else.
On Friday, we save the best for last, with a final regular season trip to Tucson to take on ourrival, Arizona. Those games are always played with a lot of passion and intensity and I cannot wait for that series.
Thanks for checking in, I’ll let you know how the trip to Tucson goes, the NCAA selection show and more next time.
Best Wishes this week in Tucson Brett! As an ASU season ticket holder and alumni, I have really enjoyed watching you and the team grow up.
I’m going to Tucson for this series and I can’t wait either! Things seem to be coming together for our team. This next month is going to be fun. Good luck!
