Todd McInnis pitched into the eighth inning with a no-hitter against Alabama on March 6th. Kiki Vazquez of UCF was named the hitter of the week.

Fullerton hosts Stanford

Cal State Fullerton will open the season on Friday against Stanford. Fullerton is expected to start All-American pitcher Wes Roemer on Friday to face off against Stanford ace Nolan Gallagher. The Saturday match up is Jeff Kaplan facing off against Jeffrey Inman. The Sunday match up will be Jimmy Bleich taking the mound for the Cardinal while Sean Urena will make his first appearance as a Titan. Fullerton lost a ton of talent from last year’s team but at Fullerton you reload instead of rebuilding. Stanford should be ready this season to contend for the Pac 10 crown like usual.

Roemer and Clark injured for Titans

Wes Roemer and Jared Clark both of Cal State Fullerton have recently been injured according to Aaron Fitt of Baseball America. He states that Roemer has a broken pinky finger on his throwing hand. The Titans are trying to have Roemer pitch through the injury. Jared Clark is out for the 2007 season with a torn ACL. This a huge loss for the Titans since Clark hit five home runs last season and was expected to contribute significantly this season. There are also some more news in notes in this article from Aaron Fitt.

Fullerton releases 2007 Schedule


The Cal-State Fullerton Titans and George Horton (one of my favorite managers) have released the 2007 Schedule. They will host Stanford, Arizona, and Rice each for three games series in the beginning of the season with a trip to UNLV thrown in just for fun (We know what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas). They will also play UCLA for three games (two at UCLA and one in Fullerton) and play a home and home with local rival USC. They also make two interesting road trips this season when they travel to East Carolina and Wichita State each for a weekend series. The Titans should continue to be at the top of the Big West conference and the national rankings.

Full Schedule available here.

Golden Eagles to Face Titans


There is some rumors on Southeast Baseball that Cal-State Fullerton Titans and the Southern Mississippi Golden Eagles have scheduled a home and home series in the 2008 and 2009 seasons. Southern Miss will go to Fullerton in March of 2008 and Fullerton will be visiting Hattiesburg in March of 2009. This is a good series for the Eagles as it will give them three more games against top of the line competition in the respective years.

Rest of the Super-Regionals


UNC heads to Alabama for a SEC-ACC matchup. UNC is a better team then Alabama with solid hitting and 2 first round picks in there pitching staff with Andrew Miller and Daniel Bard. UNC should sweep them in the series

South Carolina visits Georgia for the Super Regional. Georgia has a ton of good arms and a good pitchign staff as they should take this series.

Stanford at Oregon State should be a win for the beavers

Missouri at Cal St Fullerton is a very easy pick if you look at it on paper but Cal State will be taken to 3 games but win the series though.

Oklahoma at Rice will have the Owls come out on top.

Miami at Ole Miss is a win for the Hurricanes.

CSF Wins a Wild One


CSF just beat Arizona State 3-2 behind a two run ninth inning which included a walk-off balk which was called on the fourth pitch of an intentational walk for not coming to a stop which I did not see on the replays. This was a great game that might have been decided by a bad call from an umpire. Jason Urquidez and Ricky Romero pitched great and both deserved to win. Urquidez pitched 7.2 innings only letting up 1 run on 2 hits. Ricky Romero was just as impressive by letting up 2 ER on 3 hits while getting the complete game. His only mistake was a 2 run homer to Travis Buck.

This is the quote from the Crew Chief

“It was a violation of rule 9-3j (which says) the pitcher has to come to a complete and discernable stop,” crew chief and second base umpire Paul Guillie said following the game. “The call was made on the 3-0 count. The third base umpire made the call.”
