SoCal Roundup: Extra! Extra!

“Extra! Extra! Read all about it!”

USC continued its walk-off magic, UCLA got the first win in a big regional rematch with Cal Poly and Long Beach State broke out the whooping stick.

SoCal Roundup: USC Upsets No. 2 Fullerton

Today was our first opportunity to see the Southern California teams face off with each other in mid-week action — something that makes the SoCal teams unique.

Rather than playing schools from directional schools or baby small conferences like might happen in other parts of the country, the SoCal coaches match up with each other, creating a great atmosphere and competition.

Unlike last season when Cal State Fullerton started the season 10-0, the Titans look vulnerable after a second sloppy game in four days cost Fullerton at USC.

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.

SoCal Roundup: No. 1 Fullerton Upended

It only took until Day Two for the list of undefeated Southern California teams to trim to just one (not including UC Santa Barbara, who has yet to play).

But the team with a still unblemished record is not No. 1 Cal State Fullerton or fellow top 10 squad, UCLA. Instead it is the USC Trojans, who have needed 26 innings to determine a pair of games with Northwestern.

USC isn’t the only team playing extra baseball early on. Five of the SoCal games went into extra innings this afternoon.

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

Washington State 9, #1 Cal State Fullerton 7 (11 innings)

The Titans clawed back from a 7-3 deficit to tie the game in the eighth inning, but in the ninth inning when Fullerton had an opportunity to collect a walk-off win after J.D. Davis tripled with one out, the Titans couldn’t get the job done. Continue reading
