Oregon State, the No. 1 overall seed, will lead the Pac-12's five entrants in the NCAA baseball tournament, beginning Friday at regional sites.
The Beavers are the only Pac-12 team that will host one of the 16 double-elimination regionals in the 64-team event. The regional winners will advance to super regional competition, with eight teams qualifying for the College World Series at Omaha, Neb.
Three of the Pac-12 contestants are No. 2 seeds. Oregon will play in Vanderbilt's regional, Washington will compete at Ole Miss and Arizona State will play at Cal Poly.
Stanford, a No. 3 seed, travels to Indiana. The Cardinal were thought to be on the bubble for selection, having tied with USC for fifth place in the conference with a 16-14 record.
