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
