Cal Takes Game Two, 13-3

BERKELEY -- California jumped to an early 4-0 lead in the first inning on Friday and never looked back in a 13-3 BYU loss.

California quickly began where it left off the previous day with huge innings. Friday the Bears began by hitting a grand slam off BYU starter Bryce Searle in the first. A single and two walks loaded the bases for first baseman Chris Errecart, who poked his two-out four bagger over the right-center wall. The freshman finished 3-for-4 with four RBI.

The Bears increased their lead to 5-0 when David Weiner tripled in Justin Nielson.

Ryan Chambers scored the first Cougar run on a single by Ben Saylor in the third inning. But Cal came right back in the fourth with two-straight extra base hits, knocking Searle out of the game. Searle took the loss, giving up seven runs in his three-plus innings of work.

Third baseman Rob Itri provided the Cougars with their final two runs in the sixth inning on a two-run home run, knocking in Saylor who had led off the inning with a single. Itri and Saylor both finished the night 2-for-4.

After scoring a lone run in the sixth, Cal increased its lead to 12-3 in the seventh inning, scoring four runs on four singles. A single and an error in the eighth gave the Bears their final run.

Junior Kyle Crist picked up his first win for Cal, pitching five innings, getting six strikeouts and allowing one run off four hits.

The final game of the three-game series is scheduled for noon (PST) on Saturday. The game can be followed live on Gametracker. A link to the webcast can be found at www.byucougars.com.
