SoCal Roundup: West Coast Champs Crowned

Have to keep the roundup of the exciting final full day of Southern California action to a minimum tonight as I’m headed out from Banner Island Ballpark in Stockton, Calif. after the WCC Championship and driving to Las Vegas, Nev. for the Mountain West finale tomorrow.

(Well, I ended up getting booted from Banner Island before I could finish up, so I made a pit stop in Barstow to rest the legs and finish up the SoCal Roundup. I will have more from the WCC Championship later when I arrive and settled in at UNLV.)

But here’s Saturday’s SoCal Roundup complete with photo galleries from Cal State Fullerton and Banner Island Ballpark:

SoCal Roundup: Justin Garza No Hitter

The Mountain West Conference Tournament had a couple of exciting finishes and officially has a team swinging a mean scythe. The West Coast Conference has its championship game participants and it will be a familiar face-off.

Oh…and some guy named Garza happened to throw nine innings without the other team getting a hit and there might have been an upset of the No. 1 team in the country.

All that plus more in a super exciting final Friday regular season edition of the Southern California College Baseball Roundup:

SoCal Roundup: Tight Finishes

With a pair of Pac-12 games going extra innings and all but two other Southern California squads competing in games decided by two runs or less, Sunday was a day of tight action.

Only two series ended in sweeps, but was it UC Irvine, Washington, Pepperdine or Long Beach State that was able to take off the final game? And who won the rubber matches in the remaining series?

All of that plus more in a roundup of Sunday’s Southern California college baseball action with photo gallery from Cal State Northridge/Long Beach State and some great defensive highlights:

SoCal Roundup: Finding a Way

A number of Southern California squads had obstacles to overcome on Friday, but some were able to find a way to win, which is the name of the game once you get to this point in the season.

San Diego had a pair of heavily offensive innings, but was it enough on the road at San Francisco? UCLA and Arizona State’s aces struggled out of the gate, but one got better and led his team to victory. Find out who survived the battle.

UC Santa Barbara and San Diego State had their offenses get shut down, but one team was able to find a way to win. And Cal State Fullerton was on the road at Wichita State and without offensive leader Matt Chapman. Could the Titans get Thomas Eshelman enough offensive support?

All of that plus more in a roundup of all of Friday’s Southern California college baseball action with photo galleries from Cal State Northridge/Long Beach State and ASU/UCLA:

SoCal Roundup: Double-Double

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.

That plus all of Tuesday’s Southern California college baseball action with highlights from UCLA and a CBD photo gallery from Eddy D. Field Stadium in Malibu: Continue reading SoCal Roundup: Double-Double

Saturday Roundup (3/1)

Maryland senior Jake Stinnett was a cut above the rest on Saturday as the senior tossed the first no-hitter for the Terrapins since 2008 in a 4-0 win over UMass. Stinnett faced just two over the minimum while striking out nine batters. Coming off a week in which he was named the ACC Pitcher of the Week, he retired the final 11 batters of the game in dominating fashion. Maryland also won game two of the doubleheader 10-1.

SoCal Roundup: Fullerton & UCLA Walk-Off

After dropping their first game of the season, Southern California’s top ranked squads, No. 1 Cal State Fullerton and No. 9 UCLA, both bounced back with dramatic victories to ensure a series win.

It was a strong day in the Southland as 10 of the 11 SoCal teams in action scored victories. Long Beach State’s series sweep at the hands of No. 10 Vanderbilt and “one of the best pitching staffs I’ve ever seen,” according to Dirtbags’ head coach Troy Buckley, was the only blemish.
