Cal baseball hopes to find groove against Arizona

Cal baseball is spiraling downward quickly. After an excellent start to their 2015 season, the Bears (23-14, 10-8 Pac-12) are suffering from a serious rough stretch with three straight series losses, including a shutout against rival Stanford, 0-4, on Tuesday. But the Bears hope to turn their season back around

Cal baseball drops 2 of 3 against No. 3 Bruins over weekend

Heartbreaking. That’s the word that describes Cal baseball’s late inning collapse against No. 3 UCLA (28-8, 14-4 Pac-12) on Saturday night. It was the final game of the series, with both teams having split the first two contests. Cal, the loser of its last two series, needed this upset badly
