• No. 11 Virginia clinched a road series win against No. 10 Clemson with an 8-7 victory Saturday. Sr. RHP Tyler Wilson (5.2 IP, 6 H, 3 R, 2 ER, 0 BB, 7 K) was solid in a no-decision for the Cavs, but Clemson surged ahead with four runs in the seventh against the UVa. bullpen. Virginia answered with three in the eighth to tie it, then won it on John Hicks' RBI single in the ninth.
• Louisiana State has proven that it is one of the nation's elite teams, clinching a series against Cal State Fullerton with a 7-6 win. After the Titans came from behind to tie the game with a pair of runs in the eighth, LSU went back ahead for good on Tyler Hanover's bases-loaded walk in the bottom of the frame. Freshmen carried the Tigers: Kevin Gausman (7 IP, 4 H, 4 ER, 2 BB, 5 K) was solid on the mound, and JaCoby Jones had three hits.
• Arizona State clinched a road series win at Auburn with a 9-5 victory Saturday. Unheralded So. DH Joey DeMichele paced ASU's 17-hit attack with a 5-for-5 day (including three doubles), and Matt Newman had two homers and four RBIs.
• California trailed 6-1 after five innings but scratched out five runs over the next four innings to force extras against Rice. Both bullpens were outstanding thereafter, but Cal scored a run in the 15th to win 7-6. Kevin Miller threw seven innings of one-hit, shutout relief for the Golden Bears, and Kyle Porter got the win with four innings of one-hit ball.
• The most stunning result of the day—and probably the season—came in Fort Worth, where Houston Baptist improved to 1-14 with a 7-4 upset of No. 7 Texas Christian. Matt Purke (3.2 IP, 3 H, 4 R, 1 ER, 3 BB, 4 K) got the start and sustained his first career loss against a previously winless Houston Baptist club. Unbelievable.
