DROPPED OUT



CALIFORNIA (21)
Last Week: 2-2. Overall: 28-16, 12-9 in Pac-10 (3-11 vs. Top 25). Weekend Series: 6-3.
The Golden Bears dropped two of three at Oregon State to remain in fourth place in the Pac-10 heading into their exam break. After Friday’s series opener was postponed by rain, the Bears and Beavers split a doubleheader Saturday. The Golden Bears out-hit the Beavers 9-2 in the opener but were still shut out, as Erik Johnson (7 IP, 2 H, 3 ER, 6 BB, 9 K) fell to 5-2 on the season. Cal surged ahead with three runs in the fifth in the nightcap, highlighted by Tony Renda’s two-run homer against Josh Osich (6 IP, 6 H, 4 ER), and Justin Jones (9 IP, 6 H, 2 ER, 0 BB, 8 K) threw his third complete game of the season. Kevin Miller (2 IP, 3 H, 3 R, 2 ER) got the start Sunday in place of Dixon Anderson and took the loss.
