BATON ROUGE, La. – Senior Robby Price and junior Casey Lytle each had three hits and two doubles, while Brett Bochy pitched 2 1/3 innings of hitless relief as the Kansas Jayhawks knocked off previously unbeaten, and top-ranked Louisiana State, 11-9 Friday night in front of a packed house at Alex Box Stadium.

Here are my thoughts about the college baseball action that took place on March 5th.
The San Diego Toreros were nearly a consensus pick receiving six out of eight first place votes in the West Coast Conference Preseason Poll. They have failed to live up to the expectations as they have started the season 4-6 including getting shutout today by a solid Kentucky squad. The biggest issue I see with the Toreros is the fact they have a team ERA of 5.35 which is unacceptable with the caliber of the pitching staff led by Sammy Solis, Kyle Blair, and AJ Griffin. They will have to wait a day for their chance to take out some frustration as they play Sunday against Monmouth.

PRINCETON, N.J. — It has been since the late 1980s that Dartmouth hoisted a championship in Baseball. In 1987, the Big Green, led by star pitcher Mike Remlinger, brought the old EIBL championship to the friendly confines of Hanover, N.H. Since then, six other Ivy League teams have won the title as the Big Green waited for another shot at glory. That all changed in 2009 as Bob Whalen’s squad emerged to take the Ivy League Baseball Championship in the rubber match of a three-game series with Bill Walkenbach’s Cornell squad, all the while ending the 22-year drought.
