Highlights from Game 2
Green's streak of 57 games as the Trojans' starting shortstop was snapped after a strained back muscle knocked him out of last night's game and is day-to-day.
Junior right-hander Ryan Cook (Clovis/Clovis HS) threw six solid innings, allowing only three runs (two earned) on eight hits in his first start of the season. Anthony Vasquez, Kevin Couture and Robert Stock combined with three scoreless innings to close out the game.
Highlights from Game 3
Freshman right-hander Chris McCaffery (Hillsborough/St. Ignatius HS) came out of the bullpen and threw 2 2/3 scoreless innings in his collegiate debut to earn the win for the Trojans.
Buss finished with a 2-for-6 day with four RBI and an 8-for-15 performance (.533) on the weekend with two home runs and seven RBI. Senior designated hitter Mike Roskopf (Prescott, Ariz./North Carolina State) went 3-for-5 with a two-run single and two doubles while senior first baseman Derek Perren (Chatsworth/L.A. Pierce College) was 2-for-5 with two RBI.
A nice way to start the season. SC takes on San Diego State on Tuesday in San Diego.
