We compiled a whole bunch of Cal Baseball links a couple of days ago. Click here to look at that if you missed it.

Bears kicked off the 2014 season yesterday with a 7-0 win, behind brilliant pitching by freshman Daulton Jefferies, offensive output of Derek Campbell, and taking advantage of 5 Longhorn miscues.

The post game handshake line is probably one of my favorite thing about baseball.

Ryan Gorcey over at Bear Territory has plenty of details from the Bears' opening game and that recap is FREE. Definitely check that out for a better understanding of this year's squad.

Here is what head coach Esquers said of his freshman starter, Jefferies who tossed 6 brilliant innings with 4 K's:

"He looked comfortable, and he just has poise," said head coach David Esquer. "I think, down the line, he's going to have to get more hitters out with his breaking pitch. He was more fastball-change today, and he was dotting the fastball and had something on it. The better pitchers on Friday are going to have to pitch with a three-pitch mix, so that's going to have to improve, but to be quite honest, any pretty good pitcher can go five innings."

By the way, with his son being the Texas 1st baseman, Roger Clemens apparently was in the stands for the game yesterday.

GO BEARS!
