SoCal Roundup: Walk-Off Winners

Three games came down to the wire and required walk-off wins — two to help a pair of SoCal squads wrap up a series win and one to crush the heart of the opponent after a valiant comeback.

UCLA went for a sweep while USC tried to win its first Pac-12 series. Cal State Fullerton tried to rebound after being shutout Saturday night and something must be in the water in San Diego — a day after the Toreros put up 18 runs their crosstown rivals matched the output.

SoCal Roundup: Dull Aces

There were some aces that were missing their sharp kitchen utensils on Friday afternoon.

Granted, those three staff aces are still going to give their team a chance to compete every time out, so were their squads able to pick them up when they didn’t have their A+ stuff?

That plus all of Friday’s other Southern California college baseball action, including some photos from the last two days at Cal State Northridge, some highlights and clips from Pepperdine and Cal State Fullerton: Continue reading
