The Bears look to wrap up a sweep of the Beavers at Evans Diamond today. Cal has won the first two games by a combined total of 25-7.

Freshman standout Jones earned his ninth win of the season by throwing 7.0 innings with eight hits, four runs, two walks and two strikeouts. He had yielded three runs to the Beavers in the top of the third inning on Andrew Susac's RBI double, followed by Tyler Smith's two-run double to give OSU a 3-0 lead, and gave up another run to the Beavers in the fifth inning on Travis Andrew's RBI single.

But Jones was able to render OSU scoreless the rest of the way while Cal's offense mounted its comeback. Jones' nine wins is the most for a Bear since David Cash tallied 10 wins in 2001.

Cal came back from a 3-0 deficit with three runs in the fourth inning on sophomore center fielder Chad Bunting's sacrifice fly and sophomore right fielder Danny Oh's two-run single through the right side of the infield. After the Beavers had scored their run in the top of the fourth inning, the Bears tied the contest, 4-4, on Renda homer with one out in the bottom of the fifth.

From that point on, Cal continued to score runs, tallying four runs in the sixth inning and six runs in the seventh inning. Sophomore shortstop Marcus Semien, Renda and junior second baseman Brian Guinn had RBI singles in the sixth, and Krist notched a sacrifice fly. The big hits in the seventh inning were Guinn's two-run single to center field, a two-run RBI single by junior first baseman Mark Canha and Krist's two-run homer (team-leading ninth of the year).
