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).

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.
