Spring break not entirely friendly to USC

first_imgSpring break was no break at all for the USC baseball team, as they played a packed set of games against strong opponents.Tapped · Sophomore pitcher Chad Smith gets the start today. – Brandon Hui | Daily Trojan The Trojans played seven road games over the break, flying across the ocean to take on Hawai’i and traveled to Northern California where they faced off with Pacific. USC went 4-3 and evened its season record at 10-10.Coming away with a winning record after such a long road trip might seem like a positive. But USC coach Chad Kreuter said a poll of the players and coaches would return a different answer.“They’d say it was disappointing [to go 4-3],” Kreuter said. “It looks good for a road record on paper, but we gave away the first game at Hawai’i and didn’t pitch or execute as well as we needed to.”After taking three of four from the Rainbows, USC dropped the first two games at Pacific before bouncing back Sunday with its largest offensive output of the season, scoring 15 runs and knocking 21 hits.Freshman Cade Kreuter started the onslaught in the second inning when he hit his first of two home runs. He finished the week batting .409 (9-22) to boost his average to a robust .360 — best among full-time starters.Sophomores Matt Foat and Ricky Oropesa also hit home runs Sunday. Foat had a big game going 2-4 with five RBI while Oropesa’s home run was the culmination of a stellar week.In his last five games, the left-handed hitting sophomore has batted .600 (12-20) with three home runs, four doubles and nine RBI — recording RBI in all five games.With a solid relief effort allowing two runs in 4.1 innings, sophomore Brandon Garcia picked up the victory Sunday. Garcia’s effort was emblematic of the team’s last six games — when the relief pitching was solid, the team won.In the March 12 series opener against Hawai’i, USC blew a 2-0 lead in the bottom of the seventh inning when it committed three errors. Sophomore starting pitcher Andrew Triggs didn’t help his cause committing two of them. The bullpen then allowed four runs the following inning to give the Rainbows an 8-2 victory.The Trojans took the next three games from Hawai’i, only allowing three runs and while winning 3-1, 12-2 and 9-0.Sophomore Ben Mount pitched his first complete game March 13, allowing one run on five hits and striking out eight. The following day, senior Kevin Couture pitched five innings to pick up the win while juniors Chris Mezger and Logan Odom threw four scoreless innings allowing only one hit.In the series finale, sophomore Chad Smith, senior Shuhei Fujiya and Garcia combined for the best pitching performance of the season — zero runs, three hits, 11 strikeouts.The team hoped to carry its success into the weekend series against Pacific but struggled from the mound. Triggs gave up six runs, Mount allowed four runs, the Tigers got to Couture for seven runs and the bullpen combined to surrender six runs in eight innings.Only Garcia’s relief performance and the offensive outburst on Sunday saved USC from being swept.Kreuter said the team’s pitching struggles are all very similar.“In the seventh or eighth inning, we give up runs in bunches,” Kreuter said. “It’s usually just one pitch. Something like a 1-2 breaking ball that we hang instead of getting in the dirt.”“The guys did a really good job of correcting that in Hawaii,” he said. “We’re heading in the right direction. We’ve just got to get over that hump and learn from those mistakes.”The Trojans will look to carry momentum from Sunday’s 15-9 win as they host Pepperdine at 6:30 p.m. tonight in their final tune-up game before the conference schedule begins this weekend.After his strong outing last Monday against Hawai’i, Smith will get the start.last_img read more

Take USC for example. Yet the Bruins (4-4, 2-3) have this blue-plate combo, on the road both times. The Utes (4-4, 1-4) have lost three in a row after a 30-24 win at Arizona on Sept. 23, and one of them was that one-point mishap at USC.Also in College Football Week 10: LSU at Alabama, Saturday at 5 p.m., Channel 2; Virginia Tech at Miami, 5 p.m., Channel 7; Oregon at Washington, Saturday at 7 p.m., FS1; Oklahoma at Oklahoma State, Saturday at 1 p.m., FS1; Stanford at Washington State, Saturday at 12:30 p.m., Channel 11; Clemson at North Carolina State, Saturday at 12:30 p.m., Channel 7; South Carolina at Georgia, Saturday at 12:30 p.m., Channel 2; Ohio State at Iowa, Saturday at 12:30 p.m., ESPN; Wake Forest at Notre Dame, Saturday at 12:30 p.m., Channel 4.

After a game in Jacksonville, another in London and then a bye week, they have the giant responsibility of entertaining what could be the NFL’s most disappointing franchise.

Why not come dressed as your favorite Dodger and see if you can sneak through security.And don’t be spooked by the prices that have recently posted for Game 6. The lowest-priced seats at the very top of the reserved level far down by the foul poles are going for about $920-plus. The so-called “best value” is a $4,995 spot in the club section on the first-base line. There’s also a $25,000 dugout club seat in row AA if you wish – not you, Marlins Man.One thing we did notice during Games 1 and 2 at Dodger Stadium last week was how, at times, it didn’t seem to be “World Series” enough. Between innings, the video boards still had those trivial fan contests – find the ball under the baseball cap, and whatever they do with throwing ping-pong balls into a plastic cup – which feel more appropriate when you’re just trying to pass the time during a regular-season contest. There was far too many “Make Noise!” coaxing, as if the fans couldn’t figure it out. And all the celebrity shots in the stands. Really? Would it be too much to ask for a few more  historic World Series clips with Vin Scully narration from past Dodgers’ Fall Classic victories? Find a company to sponsor it. We’re sure they’d be happy to be associated with something a little more classy than sassy.NO. 2: HORSE RACING: 34th BREEDERS’ CUP Details/TV: At Del Mar Race Track, Friday and Saturday, NBCSN and Ch. 4The surf and turf meet the sport’s greatest day for the first time, venturing south of Santa Anita to put a spotlight on how Southern California remains in the game despite the loss of Hollywood Park. The 13-race, two-day festival includes nine champions from past Breeders’ Cup events going after $28 million in prizes. The $6 million Classic (Saturday, 5:35 p.m., Ch. 4) has defending champion Arrogate back against rival and Pacific Classic winner Collected, Travers champ West Coast and top-ranked North American horse Gun Runner, who has become the early favorite with bettors. Trainer Bob Baffert has five horses pre-entered in the race before positions are drawn Monday, and he is trying to have a winner here for the fourth straight time.The lineup: Friday: Juvenile Fillies Turf (2:25 p.m.), Dirt Mile (3:05 p.m.), Juvenile Turf (3:50 p.m.), Distaff (4:35 p.m.) Saturday: Juvenile Fillies (noon), Turf Sprint (12:37 p.m.), Filly and Mare Sprint (1:14 p.m.), Filly and Mare Turf (2 p.m.), Sprint (2:37 p.m.), Mile (3:19 p.m.), Juvenile (3:58 p.m.), Turf (4:37 p.m.), Classic (5:35 p.m.)This brief Del Mar 16-race meet through Nov. 26 opens Wednesday with a first post of 12:30 p.m. More information: www.breederscup.comNO. 3: COLLEGE FOOTBALL WEEK 10ARIZONA AT USC Details/TV: At the Coliseum, Saturday, 7:45 p.m., ESPNArizona sophomore quarterback Khalil Tate, the Inglewood native from Serra High in Gardena, turned down a USC scholarship and made his first college start at age 17 against the Trojans last season, piling up 72 yards rushing with a TD and 58 yards passing. But USC wrangled a 48-14 win behind five TD scores by Sam Darnold. Things have changed a bit. Tate had 275 yards passing, 146 yards rushing and accounted for three TDs in the Wildcats’ win over then-No. 15 Washington State on Saturday night. The Trojans can clinch (unofficially) the Pac-12 South, meaning they have head-to-head wins over their closest pursuers with just a few weeks left in the regular season. It’s USC’s homecoming game, and the No. 17 Trojans (7-2, 5-1) have a 5-0 record against the No. 23 Wildcats (6-2, 4-1) when both meet as AP Top 25 ranked teams. Angels’ poor pitching spoils an Albert Pujols milestone NO. 9: NHL: MAPLE LEAFS AT KINGS Details/TV: At Staples Center, Thursday, 7:30 p.m., FSWThe Kings finish a six-game road trip with a stopover in St. Louis (Monday, 5 p.m, FSW) before entering November, where nine of the 14 games are at home. Toronto handed the Kings their first regulation loss of the season last week, a 3-2 decision where the Kings took an inordinate amount of penalties and were without Jeff Carter. Goalie Jonathan Quick is second in the NHL in goals-against (1.76) and save percentage (.946) and Drew Doughty leads in plus-minus (13), with the Maple Leafs’ 20-year-old center Austin Matthews second at 12 and fourth in goals with eight.Also this week for the Kings: Vs.
