Cal v. San Diego Baseball Open Thread

Ok, so we're new to SBN, but they seem pretty big on these open thread thingies.  Anyway, with coverage of today's baseball game limited to just radio (KALX, 90.7 FM if you're anywhere near Berkeley), I thought it'd be worth it to give this thing a try.  Basically, I'll be sorta liveblogging this thing in the comments section, and anyone else that is listening, watching from Long Beach, or just wants to chime in is welcome.  I got nowhere to be, so if you're stuck at work, this is the place to be.

Inning and a half gone, no score.  The Bears (the visitor) have gotten one man as far as second base in their two half innings, while Ross limited the Toreros to just a bunt single in the bottom of the first.

Edit:  The Bears are down 1-0 through 6 innings, as Tyson Ross, who has looked sharp
all day, finally gives up an RBI double following a 2-out walk.  As good as Ross has been, San Diego's Brian Matusz has been better, giving up just two hits and striking out seven through six innings.

Edit 2:  San Diego has busted it open, scoring 4 times in the bottom of the 7th.  Tyson Ross just tired out or something.

Edit 3:  And it's official.  San Diego defeats California 5-0 behind a complete game shutout from Brian Matusz (3 hits, 10 Ks).  The Bears will try and extend their season tomorrow at 2pm against the loser of Long Beach State and Fresno State.

Edit 4:  (Final edit, I swear)  And the matchups are set.  Cal vs. Long Beach State tomorrow at 2pm.  Loser's season is over, while the winner still has a long road to go.
