The only two Southern California teams that seem secure in the postseason matched up for the second week in a row with No. 27 Pepperdine traveling to No. 7 Cal Poly this time. A familiar middle-of-the-lineup face who had been struggling seems to be back in the groove as he led his team to a victory.
It only took one swing in the UCLA/Fullerton game and Michael Cederoth had an unusual outing as he tried to lead San Diego State to a win at Long Beach State. Cederoth also tried to trim the national saves lead on Sam Moore, but Moore got into Irvine’s game at San Diego even though the ‘Eaters jumped out to a 13-2 lead.

With UC Santa Barbara, Pepperdine and Cal State Northridge not having lights at their fields, it opens up the possibility of being able to catch multiple games in one day when those teams play at home and then other Southern California squads host night games.
But not having lights also opens up the possibility of games being suspended, postponed or even called due to darkness. That was the case on Tuesday when UCLA visited Santa Barbara and ended up going into extra innings where the game came to a completely unsatisfactory conclusion after 12 innings.

Both Pepperdine and Loyola Marymount have both been strong defensively and are among the top West Coast Conference teams, despite having to rely on a pair of freshmen shortstops.
But rather than being bothered by being thrust into the fire, Manny Jefferson and David Fletcher have thrived under the pressures of being regular starters for regional contenders just a season removed from high school ball. Both players made major contributions with the glove on Tuesday.

There were only five games on the Southern California slate Tuesday night, but there was still plenty of action. San Diego State tried to announce its presence with authority at Fowler Park and take the city rivalry season series for the second year in a row.
USC and UCLA tried to even season series while Taylor Sparks went ya-ya for UC Irvine and Cal Poly’s had a late inning offensive explosion.
All of that in a roundup of Tuesday’s Southern California college baseball action with photo galleries from three of the five matchups:
Long Beach Sate saw the return of an important rotation arm that could give them a boost the rest of the season, though he wouldn’t figure in today’s decision. See who is back on the mound.
Two other familiar faces provided today’s highlights as a pair of seniors that have battled through adversity produced a school hitting record and a first career save.

There were six games on the Southern California schedule Tuesday afternoon and evening and five of them came down to the wire with four one-run games and a 9-7 battle down in San Diego. Tuesday’s tight-knit action piggy-backed Monday’s walk-off win for San Diego State
A roundup of all SoCal squads that were in action Tuesday with a photo gallery from Monday’s exiciting San Diego State/Purdue matchup:
Staying close to home was a common theme for the SoCal midweek matchups for all but one team, which had one heck of a road trip just to get to their Tuesday matchup.
San Diego and San Diego State renewed their rivalry while USC faced off with former Trojan head coach Mike Gillespie. And LMU didn’t even have to travel east of Interstate 405 as the Lions faced off with yet another Pac-12 club.

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.
