- UC-Irvine junior RHP Matt Summers pitched the fourth complete game no-hitter in school history in a 2-0 victory over Long Beach State on Friday evening. He used 105 pitches and faced one over the minimum in the complete-game effort to improve to 10-2 on the year and go undefeated in Big West games at 8-0. The right-hander walked Jeff Yamaguchi in the second but induced an inning-ending double-play grounder. Summers then hit Ino Patron with the pitch with two outs in the eighth but struck out Juan Avila to end the frame. The victory was Summers second straight complete game shutout.
- San Francisco edged Gonzaga 4-2 to grab a one game lead in the West Coast Conference race. The win by USF puts Gonzaga in the tough position to win their next two games if they are going to win the conference title. Kyle Zimmer (5-4) threw seven innings and struck out two and issued three free passes but allowed the two runs. Cameron Love went the rest of the way to earn the save. Ryan Carpenter was solid for the Zags with seven strikeouts, walked two and allowed eight hits but two balks called on him helped the Dons gain two runs. He went on to throw 6 1/3 frames before handing the ball to Andy Hunter, who struck out four and allowed two hits, one on a home run.
- Georgia struck with four runs in the first two innings and held on to defeat top ranked South Carolina 4-2 on Friday evening. The Bulldogs now need to defeat Vanderbilt in their next game to make themselves eligible for the NCAA Tournament as a win would clinch them finishing over .500.
- Gerrit Cole returned to his form this Friday with a dominating performance against Arizona State going eight innings giving up three runs on nine hits while striking out nine batters. The most impressive part of the performance ws the fact that Cole touched 100 MPH several times in the eighth inning as the Bruins won the game 10-3 over Arizona State.
