Hello Dawg Fans,
Last night we got in late after going down to Los Angeles to play UCLA for a mid-week game. We were able to fight back from a 6-1 deficit to tie the game and force extra innings but ended up losing 7-6. These last two games have been disappointing for us because we have had opportunities to win both games but have been coming up a bit short. On the bright side we have shown to ourselves that we can compete with anybody and now we just need to get better at putting teams away.
This week has gone by very fast for everyone because we played yesterday instead of having four days of practice. It is the first week of the quarter for us so everyone is acclimating to their new classes and getting back to the routine of balancing school and homework. Everyone is missing how nice it was not to have to worry about school for the past two weeks.
Coming up this weekend we have another home stand against the northern California schools. On Friday we will be play Cal, followed by Stanford on Saturday and Sunday. As always the Pac-10 is tough this year and we know that every game will be a battle until the last out. We are excited to be playing at home again knowing we will have our usual great crowd support! Try and make it out to a game this weekend, Go Dawgs!
