SAN DIEGO – Cal baseball went undefeated at the University of San Diego Tournament, defeating the host Toreros, 5-2, in the Golden Bears’ second game Monday (March 3) after earlier in the day topping Baylor, 5-3. David Esquers‘ squad – which exploded for five runs in the third inning against San Diego on a two run double by Devin Pearson and RBI singles from Devon Rodriguez, Derek Campbell and Nick Halamandaris off former Cal player Louie Lechich – is now 8-2 overall and have won six straight games. The Toreros fell to 8-2.
Between rainouts Friday and Sunday, the Bears had defeated Baylor, 8-5, on Saturday.
The winning pitcher for the Bears against San Diego was senior left-hander Kyle Porter (1-0), who threw 5.1 innings with six hits, one run, one walk and three strikeouts. Freshman right-hander Lucas Erceg earned his first career save by forcing a double play with the bases loaded in the bottom of the ninth inning.
Versus the Baylor Bears, the Bears were led by junior second baseman Brenden Farney and sophomore catcher Mitchell Kranson with two RBI apiece, while junior third baseman Chris Paul (two doubles) and sophomore first baseman Nick Halamandaris had two hits apiece.
On the mound versus Baylor, sophomore right-hander Ryan Mason picked up his second win in relief, coming in in the sixth inning and throwing 2.0 innings with four hits, one run, no walks and a strikeout. Senior right-hander Trevor Hildenberger earned his third save of the year, pitching the final 1.1 innings with one hit, no runs and one strikeout.
“These were two big wins on the road for our second tourney title of the year (Cal had gone 3-0 Feb. 21-23 at Auburn Tiger Classic),” said Esquer. “These games in San Diego had the feeling of an NCAA Tournament with rainouts and schedule changes. I am proud of our guys for coming out with energy right to the end. A lot of credit goes to our bullpen, who passed the baton to the next guy and the next guy came through.”
Cal is next scheduled to host Bay Area rival Stanford in a non-conference Tuesday, March 4 at 6 p.m. at Evans Diamond. The game will be shown on the Pac-12 Networks.

Golden Bears Win Season-Opener Versus Ranked Longhorns
BERKELEY – Behind an impressive performance from freshman right-hander Daulton Jefferies and a 3-for-4 day from junior Derek Campbell, Cal baseball shutout No. 18 Texas, 7-0, in the season-opener Friday night (Feb. 14) at Evans Diamond.
Jefferies, from Atwater, Calif., won his first collegiate start, throwing 6.0 innings with six hits, no runs, one walk and four strikeouts. Campbell had a pair of doubles and scored two runs in his 3-for-4 day. Texas was plagued by five errors, allowing six unearned runs, including three errors in the Golden Bears’ five-run fifth inning.
“It was a great opening night by a freshman pitcher,” said Cal coach David Esquer. “We couldn’t have asked for a better performance by Daulton against one of the top programs in the nation. He was as composed as any young pitcher I have ever seen. We knew he was capable, but you never know how a young player is going to react in his first game. Offensively, Campbell and senior Vince Bruno got things going early, which took some pressure off some of our young hitters.”
Cal scored the game’s first run in the third inning on Bruno’s sacrifice fly to center, scoring senior shortstop Mike Reuvekamp, who had led off the inning with a single. Reuvekamp’s run was unearned as he had advance to third on Texas starter Parker French’s (0-1, 5.0 innings, four hits, six runs, no earned runs, three walks, four strikeouts) throwing error on a Campbell sacrifice bunt.
The Bears exploded for five runs in the fifth inning, with Campbell leading off with a double, followed by Longhorn errors from French, first baseman Kacy Clemens, and Andy McGuire during the inning that allowed Cal to take a 6-0 lead. The Bears added a seventh run in the eighth inning when Campbell had a one-out double and scored of sophomore center fielder Devin Pearson’s RBI single to left center field.
Cal will next host Texas in a doubleheader beginning at 1 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 15 at Evans Diamond. The Bears will conclude the four-game series with a 1 p.m. start on Sunday, Feb. 16, at Evans Diamond.
