Wow, look how far we've come. From the choice of following games on KALX or gametracker, there are no less than six ways to keep track of the action. Personally I'd recommend booting up the KALX stream while watching ESPN on mute. Or, if you're feeling adventurous, listen to the ESPN broadcast and take a shot every time the announcers mention that Cal baseball was going to be cut after this year and see if you can make it to the 7th inning stretch.
Power righty Erik Johnson (7-4, 2.91) has been announced as Cal's starter. Virginia has avoided the temptation to save Danny Hultzen (12-3, 1.49) for game 2 and the Cavalier lefty will attempt to avoid the fate that befell #1 draft pick Gerrit Cole of UCLA when he faced Johnson earlier this year.
The climax to an unlikely, unbelievable, unforgettable season starts now. GO BEARS!
