Cal Baseball Wins Season Opener, 8-7, Over UC Riverside
Feb. 20, 2009
BERKELEY, CALIF. - Freshman Danny Oh hit a pinch hit two-run homer in his first collegiate at-bat to help propel Cal baseball to a 8-7 win over UC Riverside in the 2009 season-opener Friday at Evans Diamond. Oh, from Mill Creek, Wash., hit his two-run shot to right field off of UCR right-hander Kevin Dickey (0-1, 0.2 inning, four hits, two runs), to give the Golden Bears an 8-6 advantage in Cal's four-run seventh inning. UC Riverside came back with a run in the top of the eighth inning to get with one run, but freshman reliever Erik Johnson was able to strikeout Trevor Hairgrove for the final out of the eighth and then got the Hilltoppers out in order in the ninth inning for his first collegiate save.
The winning pitcher for the Bears was sophomore right-hander Yasser Clor, who relieved starter Kevin Miller in the sixth inning and threw 2.2 innings with two hits, one run and two walks to earn his first collegiate victory.
