Cal has beaten Arizona, 6-3, this afternoon to take two out of three in the series and finish in second place (15-6) in the Pac 10. Arizona State had clinched the conference title Thursday night.

Talking about clinching conference titles, Michigan (18-2) did the same in the Big 10, with Jordan Taylor pitching a run-rule-shortened no-hitter over intrastate rival Michigan State.

The Big 12 championship is up in the air, with Texas and Missouri tied with 14-3 records at the moment. Mizzou won the first game of a doubleheader today over Iowa State, and is leading the second game 6-0 after three innings. Texas hosts Baylor Sunday.

In the SEC, which is the only major conference to still decide its champion by tournament, Tennessee and Georgia square-off in the final (7:00 pm Central, ESPN and online at ESPN3).  UPDATE: Tennessee has won the SEC tourney, 6-5 in eight innings.
