The Pac-12 baseball regular season is over and eight teams will compete in the inaugural Pac-12 Baseball Tournament at Scottsdale Stadium starting Wednesday.

The tournament has a double elimination format and runs through Sunday, when the Pac-12 Championship Game will commence.

The winning team will receive an automatic bid to the NCAA Tournament.

The Arizona Wildcats are the No. 5 seed and will face No. 4-seeded Oregon to kick off the event Wednesday at 9 a.m.

Stanford claimed the top spot in the tournament with a 21-9 conference record and will face No. 8 seed Arizona State 45 minutes after the Arizona-Oregon game wraps.

Those four schools make up Division One on the bracket.

On the other side of the bracket, No. 7 Washington will face No. 2 Oregon State at 4:45 p.m. on Wednesday, and UCLA vs. Cal will follow to cap the first day.

The two winning teams on each side of the bracket will face each other on Thursday, while each losing team will participate in an elimination game.

Utah, Washington State and USC did not qualify for the competition.

The full bracket is posted online.
