East Bay Clash

Apr 12, 2021
Cal will face Saint Mary's for the fifth time this season Tuesday afternoon in Moraga.

BERKELEY – California begins its third consecutive four-game week with a non-conference battle against Saint Mary's Tuesday at Louis Guisto Field in Moraga, California. First pitch is slated for 3 p.m. (PDT) on the WCC Network.
The Golden Bears (17-13) and Gaels (14-15) are plenty familiar with one another, having already played a four-game split series against one another on March 4-7. Cal took three of four against the Gaels in the series.
Cal is coming off of a series loss at No. 22 Arizona this past weekend. Despite outscoring the Wildcats 13-10 across the series, Cal dropped games one and two before delivering a convincing 9-1 win in the series finale Sunday. It was the Bears' first series loss since the opening weekend of the season against Pacific (Feb. 19-22). Saint Mary's has lost seven of 10, including two of three at Gonzaga last weekend.
