USC Trojans News Brief: Baseball Beats Cal, Men’s Volleyball Beats Irvine


  • The Trojans have been stagnant of late on the diamond, but the club picked up a big series victory on Saturday, with a 3-2 win over the Cal Bears at Dedeaux Field. After Cal scored a run in the top of the ninth to tie the game, Garrett Stubbs took a bases loaded walk for a walk-off walk to give the Trojans the win. The win is just the fifth Pac-12 victory of the season, as the Trojans are now 5-6 in the conference, and 19-10 overall. Up next for the Men of Troy is a mid-week tilt against Loyola Marymount, followed by a trip to Tempe next weekend to take on Arizona State, who are 10-5 at home this season.
  • USC’s Men’s Volleyball team just keeps winning. On Saturday, the No. 1 ranked Trojans took down the nation’s second ranked team , UC Irvine, 3-1 on Senior Day. The win was the Trojans 15th in a row and the second straight at Galen Center after the team was relocated the North Gym for three matches when Nickelodeon took over the Galen Center for their annual Kids’ Choice Awards last week. The Trojans will finish up the season with trips to Long Beach State and Cal State Northridge, and are just two wins shy of clinching the regular season Mountain Pacific Sports Federation title.
  • USC’s No. 1 ranked Men’s Tennis team held serve with a 6-1 win in Tucson over the Arizona Wildcats, giving the Trojans a 43-match winning streak. They’ll be at Marks Stadium this upcoming weekend to face the Bay Area schools, followed by a visit from the Bruins on April 20th.
  • Keeping with tennis, the fourth ranked Women of Troy beat Arizona State 6-1 on Saturday, and have yet to lose a match in the Pac-12 this season, just like the men. Their schedule to end the regular season mirrors that of the men, as they’ll be in Palo Alto and Berkeley next weekend, followed by a trip across town.
