Bears win! Finally! recap:

BERKELEY, Calif. – The California Golden Bears (24-15, 10-10 Pac-12) picked up a big 7-1 win to even the series with the Washington Huskies (24-15, 10-7 Pac-12) on Saturday night at Evans Diamond. Junior second baseman Robbie Tenerowicz was 2-for-3 with four RBI on the night, and freshman righty Tanner Dodson (2-3) was excellent in his seven innings, scattering seven hits, allowing just one run and striking out four Huskies. Senior third baseman Mitchell Kransonpitched in with a big two-run single in a four-run seventh, giving the Bears an opportunity to win the series on Sunday.

"Robbie [Tenerowicz] has really stayed to the middle of the diamond and has really calmed himself," head coach David Esquer said of Tenerowicz’s hot streak at the plate. "He’s not always trying for the big, dramatic blow each and every time. He’s really just found where the hits are and for him, it’s to the middle of the diamond and he’s stayed true to that. I give him a lot of credit for that."

Cal and UW will play the rubber game at 1 pm PT in yet another non-televised game. The Sunday finale concludes an 8-game homestand. The Bears will host Utah for 3 more games to wrap up the regular season home schedule.

Probably pitching match-ups:

Saturday - RHP Tanner Dodson (1-3, 3.15 ERA) vs. RHP Joe DeMers (3-2, 5.23 ERA)

Friday result: Washington 4, Cal 2

Head coach David Esquer has reshuffled his starting lineup yet again in the hope of jump starting the Cal offense. Bears have gotten their fair share of hits but the sequencing has just been terrible. Defensive lapses in the form of both errors and pass balls were critical to Washington's win on Friday night.

Here is hoping that the Bears can find a way to turn things around tonight and play up to their lofty potential.
