Everybody wants to cheer for these boys this year and we all know why. And so far, these dudes haven’t disappointed. This weekend, the Bears were golden for sure, putting absolute clamps on anyone and everyone that dared to wave a bat at them. UC-Berkeley beat No. 17 Coastal Carolina 17-0, North Carolina State 4-0 and Kansas State 8-1. The Bears gave up a grand total of 10 hits all weekend.
It’s tough to ponder that this is the California baseball program that athletic director Sandy Barbour and other university officials want to do away with.■ Renda hoping to send Cal baseball out with a bang (San Francisco Examiner)
You know, the Cal baseball team that earned wins over Kansas State, Coastal Carolina and N.C. State – all three solid teams – and outscored the trio by a whopping 29-1 over the weekend.
With an incredible showing, the motivated Golden Bears improved their record to 5-1 with important contests against San Diego, San Diego State, Oklahoma and Connecticut coming up this week.
If this really will be the last year in the 12 decades of baseball at Cal, then the Golden Bears have every intention to go out with a bang.
“We’re going to give them one hell of a last season,” Bears coach David Esquer said.
