This is more like it. Bears even the series against Washington State with a dominant 7-0 win to keep slim postseason hope alive.
Daulton Jefferies and Alex Schick combined to dominate on the mound in this one, combining for an one hitter. The Bears' most compelling argument for the postseason is how both of these guys are finally healthy. Jefferies went 5 innings, allowing just one hit while striking out 6. Schick went the other 4 innings, while being perfect in allowing no hits nor walks.
It was a 12 hit parade for the lineup to score the 7 runs. Bears got healthier offensively as well with senior Brian Celsi back after breaking his thumb in practice about a month ago. Celsi had two RBI's in this one.
Bears wrap the regular season at Washington State at 2 pm PT.
Golden Bears drop a disappointing 4-1 decision on Friday to Washington State. Good news may be that Daulton Jefferies could be today's starter. After a lengthy absence, Jefferies came back and started the game against Utah on Monday. The potential late first round or second round pick in the upcoming June MLB draft showed that he is healthy, although he may not be sharp enough to get the strikeouts.
If Jefferies is not the starter, there is a chance that senior Ryan Mason, who probably got his start pushed back because he also pitched in the Monday game, may start tonight's game.
