Berkeley, CA – The Cal Golden Bears enjoyed no luck of the Irish this weekend when they faced intrastate and PAC-12 rival, UCLA. The Bruins showed why they are defending NCAA champs (pitching) in sweeping Cal in a three-game set.
At Evans Diamond, the visiting Bruins (12-7) yielded a total of just four runs en route to 3-2, 3-1, and 6-1 victories.
One of the few bright spots for Cal was the hitting of junior Brenden Farney. Farney extended his hit streak to nine games and was 2-4 in Sunday’s finale.
Cal (10-8) will look to get well on Tuesday in a non-conference game at Fresno State (13-7). Ironically the Bears are a perfect 6-0 on the road this season. Freshman right-hander Alex Martinez (0-1, 1.38 ERA) will try to keep the perfect road record intact.
