At about noon today, the As take on the Blue Jays in Oakland. Two former Cal teammates, Brandon Morrow and Tyson Ross, will face off as the starting pitchers. Morrow pitches for the Blue Jays, while Ross pitches for his hometown As! The linked Yahoo article notes:
Ross, who has never started against the Blue Jays (16-14), was college teammates with Morrow at California in 2006.
I have no idea if this is the first time Cal pitchers have faced off in the majors. Does anybody have that information or know where we can get it? Well, either way, hopefully, it'll be a pitcher's duel where both players rep the B+G well. Also, as a note, As manager Bob Melvin also is a Cal alum! GO BEARS!
