HAYWARD, Calif. - The Sunday finale of a three-game California Collegiate Athletic Association (CCAA) baseball series between No. 7 University of California San Diego and Cal State East Bay has been canceled. After about a 90-minute delay past the scheduled 11 a.m. start time, the umpires deemed the playing conditions unsafe following overnight rains in the Bay Area.
The Tritons and Pioneers thus split their series, having each taken a game during Saturday's doubleheader at Pioneer Baseball Field. UC San Diego grabbed the opener, 9-4, before dropping the nine-inning nightcap, 6-1, that result snapping a nine-game win streak, the program's longest since 2011.
UCSD returns home by bus on Sunday with records of 13-3 overall and 5-1 in the CCAA.
Next up, UC San Diego is back in home action with another three-game series against a CCAA North foe, hosting Cal State Monterey Bay. The doubleheader on Saturday, March 11, is slated for a 1 p.m. start at Triton Ballpark in La Jolla. The 1987 NCAA Division III College World Series team, UCSD's first, will be recognized for its 30-year anniversary season.
