Pacific also hosts Air Force on March 26 and 27 and Fresno State and San Jose State in mid-week games. March also holds the first two WCC series of the year when Pacific will play Saint Mary's and Loyola-Marymount on March 15-17 and 22-24 respectively.

The first four games in April are on the road. Pacific heads to UC Davis on April 2, then heads to Gonzaga to test the defending conference champions April 5-7. Pacific returns home to host UC Davis on April 9. Pacific closes the month of April with six of its seven games at home. The Tigers host San Francisco April 18-20 and BYU April 25-27.

In May, the Tigers start off by wrapping up their longest rest period of the season. Pacific does not play from the completion of their series against BYU until they travel to San Diego for a three-game series April 10-12. After taking on San Diego, Pacific plays a mid-week game at Nevada before returning home to wrap up the regular season against Portland. The game on May 16 against Portland will be Pacific's fireworks game, with a firework show for all fans in attendance after the game.

The season wraps up with the WCC Championship at Banner Island Ballpark in Stockton. The WCC has not released official dates for the Conference Tournament at the time of this release.
