  1. Scout: Cal righty Joey Matulovich has his best outing in months, but TCU capitalizes on Bears miscue

    BERKELEY -- California sophomore righty Joey Matulovich hadn't gotten out of the sixth inning of a game since April 8 -- the last day he recorded a win. Since then, he'd gone 0-2 with a 10.59 ERA. He needed a win. Going 7.0 innings and striking out 6 against No. 6 TCU, while allowing just one earned run against the Horned Frogs sure reads like a win, but the youthful Golden Bears did what they've done during this late-season gauntlet against four straight top-10 teams: They made youthful mistakes.

    Cal (22-27) made four errors -- two leading to runs -- and committed a base running blunder that choked off a nascent rally in the seventh, with the heart of the lineup coming up, to drop the opener to TCU (38-13).

    "Two of the three runs, we didn't stop the ball from going into center field," said head coach David Esquer. "It's hard to give them those opportunities against a good team like that."

  5. If their star slugger hadn't played so many games for the Prune Packers, the outcome might have been different.
