Three Pac-12 baseball teams remain alive as of Monday morning, with the NCAA Tournament field about to be reduced to 16 teams following the completion of regional competition.
Oregon State, hosting UC Irvine (9 p.m. MDT), and Stanford, playing at Indiana (3:30 p.m.), are in true championship games. Washington will need two victories to overcome Mississippi on the road in the double-elimination format, with the first game starting at 1 p.m. after the start of the tournament was delayed because of rain.
Oregon and Arizona State have been eliminated. Monday's regional winners will advance to super regional competition next weekend, with a best-of-three format determining the eight qualifiers for the College World Series in Omaha, Nebraska.
