Currently, the Beavers are the consensus No. 1 ranked team in all six major college baseball polls. It's the first time they've held such a ranking since their 2007 College World Series title. They are now 20-1 overall and 6-0 to begin Pac-12 conference play -- the first time since 1999. After a weekend sweep against Top-10 nationally ranked Arizona, Oregon State holds the country's best earned run average (1.48) and is the only team in the nation with a sub-2.00 ERA.

A part of the stellar pitching staff are two Oregonians in right-handers Sam Tweedt and Jake Thompson. Thompson, a native of Florence and Siuslaw High School attendee, leads the rotation with a 5-0 record and holds a 1.42 ERA in 38 innings of work. Through seven appearances -- six of them starts -- he also is second in strikeouts (43) and batting average against (.151). Tweedt hails from South Salem, attending South Salem High School and has made five appearances with four of them as the starter. Through 21.2 innings, he has accumulated a 3-0 record and a 2.08 ERA, while striking out 16.
