The Bears (24-15, 9-7 in the Pac-10) sported a new look on Friday after a four game losing streak. They might consider keeping it after the way the bats woke up in pounding the Beavers.

Superstition runs rampant in baseball clubhouses, so Danny Oh rolled his pant legs up and Dixon Anderson cut his hair before Friday's game against Oregon State, taking it upon themselves to chase away the bad mojo surrounding Cal's four-game skid.

More directly responsible for the Bears' 11-3 victory were the lineup changes made by coach David Esquer. Batting in the leadoff spot, Tony Renda went 2-for-4 with two RBIs and two stolen bases. Oh, bumped down to seventh, doubled, tripled and scored three runs.

"I think it gives us a little more balance," Esquer said. "And the top of our order is an RBI spot. Our bottom of the order's done a good job of getting on base and when it rolls back to the top they've got to be ready to drive in some runs."
