SoCal Roundup: Kissing Your Sister

With UC Santa Barbara, Pepperdine and Cal State Northridge not having lights at their fields, it opens up the possibility of being able to catch multiple games in one day when those teams play at home and then other Southern California squads host night games.

But not having lights also opens up the possibility of games being suspended, postponed or even called due to darkness. That was the case on Tuesday when UCLA visited Santa Barbara and ended up going into extra innings where the game came to a completely unsatisfactory conclusion after 12 innings.

SoCal Roundup: Not Letting History Happen

SoCal Roundup: Best Catcher in the Country?

In college baseball, starting catchers often get the mid-week games off to rest their legs in preparation for the more important weekend series, especially during the conference season, but with an extra day of rest thanks to the Easter schedule, Shane Zeile was behind the plate for UCLA on Tuesday.

Check out how Zeile impacted the game, what else Savage had to say about him and get the full roundup of Tuesday’s Southern California college baseball action. We’ve got you covered with photo galleries from San Diego State, USC and UCLA:
