SoCal Roundup: Let’s Play Two!

There were five doubleheaders as teams tried to salvage as much playing time as possible after Mother Nature had wiped out several games on Friday and Saturday.

The much-anticipated series between No. 17 Cal Poly and USC finally got underway (and then quickly faced another rain delay). The squads got a pair of nine-inning games in and the results couldn’t have been more different.

One part of UCLA’s team tried to outdo itself for the third day in a row as the Bruins looked to stay unbeaten in the Irish Classic in Cary, NC.

Cal State Fullerton, UC Santa Barbara, UC Riverside and San Diego State all looked for sweeps, even though that meant swiping both games of a doubleheader for the latter three squads. And Loyola Marymount and Cal State Northridge both tried to right the ship against Pac-12 opponents.

We’ve got your quick roundup of all the action in the area:

Sunday Roundup for March 2nd

On a weekend full of top 25 showdowns, Cal State Fullerton made sure they stood out. Going to Eugene, OR to face an 8-0 Ducks team was a tall task but the Titans not only won the series but swept Oregon in their own ballpark, an incredible feat to say the least. Fullerton struggled a bit in the first two weeks of the season coming into the series at 4-3 overall, but showed why the club had such high expectations and a pre-season #1 ranking. Pitching dominated for the Titans throughout the series as they took games 9-2, 3-2, and 5-4 today to finish off the sweep. Continue reading Sunday Roundup for March 2nd

SoCal Roundup: Rain, Rain Go Away

“Rain! Rain! Go away! Don’t ever come back until baseball season is over.” (or something like that)

There still were some great games played by some SoCal squads. Could James Kaprielian overcome UCLA’s struggling offense? How would Thomas Eshelman respond after struggling his last outing?

We’ve got your quick roundup of all the action, plus photo galleries from around the area:
