SAN DIEGO — Ryan Boldt didn’t have much to say Sunday night when San Diego Padre great Trevor Hoffman presented him with the 2012 Perfect Game All-American Classic MVP Award. It didn’t matter; his play had already said plenty.
The lanky 6-foot-1 centerfielder from Red Wing, Minnesota finished 2-for-3 with a triple to help the West squad secure a come-from-behind 7-6 victory at Petco Park Sunday night.
Boldt showed off his wheels roaming the spacious Petco outfield and when he slid into third base (pictured above) with an easy triple on a smash down the left field line.
“I try to use my speed as much as I can,” the Nebraska commit said. “I just try to put the ball in play and run as much as I can.” Continue reading

MALIBU, Calif. — Half the Oklahoma defenders were running toward their positions when they stopped in their tracks. Pepperdine was on the field celebrating a victory, even though it was only the middle of the seventh inning.
The Sooners looked around confused while Pepperdine coach Steve Rodriguez conferred with the umpires in front of home plate. The umpires then walked over and said something brief to Oklahoma coach Sunny Golloway before the home plate ump waved his arms. The game was over.
MALIBU, Calif — Pepperdine’s Joe Sever beat out a bases loaded infield single for the game-winning RBI and freshman Aaron Brown pitched around a leadoff single to close the door in the eighth inning as the Waves defeated No. 19 Oklahoma 7-6 in a travel curfew shortened game Sunday afternoon at Eddy D. Field Stadium.
After both teams had agreed before the game that no inning would start after 2:00 PM, the back-and-forth affair was called in the middle of the 7th inning just after 2:05 PM. Continue reading
MALIBU, CA — Scott Frazier showed why he is one of the top sophomore prospects Saturday afternoon at Eddy D. Field Stadium. Frazier dominated No. 19 Oklahoma to help Pepperdine knock off the Sooners 10-0.
Frazier pitched seven scoreless innings for the Waves (1-1). He scattered five hits and struck out six while only walking one. Frazier fared much better than his counterpart Jonathan Gray, also considered one of the top sophomore pitching prospects. Gray allowed only two hits, but lasted only 2 2/3 innings for Oklahoma (1-1). He struggled mightily with his control walking six batters, mainly because he couldn’t command his fastball.
