“We are very excited about the challenges our schedule presents to our team,” said Johnson. “Our players are getting a top level Division I baseball experience here with this schedule.

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:
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:
The Mountain West and West Coast conference tournaments got underway in Las Vegas and Stockton, Calif. How did the Southern California squads perform in tournament action? Find out…
All that plus the Big West teams in action in their final regular season weekend in this Thursday edition of the Southern California College Baseball Roundup.
Cal State Fullerton and USC both ended lengthy conference series droughts. But only one team did it in a positive fashion. Fittingly, UC Santa Barbara/Long Beach State and San Diego State/UC Irvine concluded their series with yet another tight game in each series finale.
Check out that plus much more in Saturday’s Southern California college baseball roundup that features photo galleries from Pepperdine, Irvine and Northridge:
There were three walk-off wins, but the most impressive performance came in a game that ended with neither team scoring a run the final eight innings. There were also two relievers that were lights out for a combined 10.1 innings.
Find out which pitchers were throwing up zero after zero in Friday’s Southern California college baseball roundup that features photo galleries from Pepperdine, Irvine and Northridge:
Rick Vanderhook didn’t travel with the team to San Luis Obispo and probably wouldn’t have liked what he saw had he went anyway. The nation’s top two closers, Sam Moore and Michael Cederoth, ended up deciding a game. See who came out on top.
But two unlikely heroes headline Thursday’s Southern California college baseball roundup that features video interviews and photo galleries from Northridge and Long Beach State:
Cal State Fullerton and UC Santa Barbara matched up in a wacky contest that featured a Thomas Eshelman walk, a Joey Epperson strikeout, 18 runs and no resolution. There was a resolution at Dedeaux Field even though it took 13 innings.
