SoCal Roundup: Let’s Play Two!

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.

We’ve got your quick roundup of all the action in the area:

SoCal Roundup: Saturday Aces

The rains again claimed most of the action in Southern California, but the teams on the road were able to get their games in (except for Long Beach State who fell victim to a ‘sub-freezing temperatures’ cancellation at Wichita State) and there were some really great matchups.

After missing him twice in Omaha last summer, UCLA finally had to face off with North Carolina State ace Carlos Rodon, but it was a different lefty that stole the show.

A pair of young top prospects took the mound in Eugene as Cal State Fullerton and Oregon battled to a one-run contest that wasn’t decided until the eighth inning.

We’ve got your quick roundup of all the action in the area:

SoCal Roundup: Rain, Rain Go Away

“Rain! Rain! Go away! Don’t ever come back until baseball season is over.” (or something like that)

Instead of an exciting matchup between USC and Cal Poly or some tripleheader USD Tournament action, all there was to do in Los Angeles tonight was listen and watch games online since everything in Southern California was cancelled on Friday.

There still were some great games played by some SoCal squads. Could James Kaprielian overcome UCLA’s struggling offense? How would Thomas Eshelman respond after struggling his last outing?

We’ve got your quick roundup of all the action, plus photo galleries from around the area:
