USC 3 - - Cal 4


What a heart breaker.

Here is the Official Box Score

Cal shortstop Michael Brady led off the bottom of the ninth with his third home run of the season Saturday as the California Golden Bears moved into a tie for fourth place in the Pac-10 Conference with a 4-3 decision against the USC Trojans at Evans Diamond. Matt Gorgen earned the win for the Golden Bears with 2 2/3 scoreless innings in relief as the Trojans stranded a season-high 14 runners despite 12 hits in the game.

Sophomore center fielder Nick Buss recorded his first four-hit game of the season with three singles, a double and two RBI while junior left fielder Lucas Duda went 2-for-2 with three walks. Freshman All-America candidate Grant Green (Anaheim Hills/Canyon HS) had a single in a 1-for-3 day and has now hit safely in 24 of his last 26 games.

Both teams have matching 26-24 overall records with Cal possessing a 9-10 conference mark while USC is now 8-11 in the Pac-10.

SC has a chance to get back into it with a win tomorrow. Game time is at 1:00 pm PDT.
