Cal State Fullerton and UC Santa Barbara matched up in a wacky contest that featured a Thomas Eshelman walk, a Joey Epperson strikeout, 18 runs and no resolution. There was a resolution at Dedeaux Field even though it took 13 innings.
That plus more in a roundup of Friday’s Southern California college baseball action with photo galleries from three of the matchups:
Cal State Fullerton was shutdown by a freshman. UC Irvine took a pair on the chin. Long Beach State lost in 11 innings. UC Santa Barbara and Cal State Northridge combined to give up 30 runs. Only UC Riverside seemed to escape the Southern California Big West blues on Saturday afternoon.
That plus all of Saturday’s other Southern California college baseball action, including some photos from Cal State Northridge, Long Beach State and Cal State Fullerton along with video interviews from Long Beach and Fullerton: Continue reading
There were some aces that were missing their sharp kitchen utensils on Friday afternoon. Instead of knifing through lineups like they were ripened pears, pitchers like West Virginia’s Harrison Musgrave, Irvine’s Andrew Morales and Fullerton’s Thomas Eshelman struggled to have the success they normally have.
Granted, those three staff aces are still going to give their team a chance to compete every time out, so were their squads able to pick them up when they didn’t have their A+ stuff?
That plus all of Friday’s other Southern California college baseball action, including some photos from the last two days at Cal State Northridge, some highlights and clips from Pepperdine and Cal State Fullerton: Continue reading

MALIBU, Calif. — Tony Cooper couldn’t quite replicate his Friday afternoon four-hit, four-RBI performance, but Pepperdine was plenty happy with the outfielder’s three RBI on Saturday in an 8-7 win against BYU at Eddy D. Field Stadium.
Cooper only had one hit, but he provided it when it mattered most. With two outs in the sixth inning, Pepperdine had a pair of runners in scoring position and had just tied the ball game. Cooper lined a 1-1 fastball into centerfield to score both runners and put the Waves ahead for good.
