#1 Barbara, the Oregon State Beavers (21-12) are doing the Pac 12 proud with a huge win on Saturday over Loyola Chicago Ramblers (26-6) 65-58. The Beavers dominated in the first half had a close second half with the Ramblers. The Beavers play the No.2 Houston Cougars (28-3) tonight in another attempt to advance.
#2 Former San Francisco Giant Pablo Sandoval 34, has made it to the Atlanta Braves opening day roster. Sandoval in spring training was undeniable hitting .375, with three doubles, four RBIs, in 15 exhibition games. The surprising thing about it no one expected Sandoval to make it and he was a non roster invitee.
#3 San Francisco Giants third baseman Evan Longoria who had suffered an inflamed heel that prevented him from playing third base was back at the hot corner on Saturday against the Seattle Mariners. Longoria as a designated hitter has left little to the imagination hitting .360, nine hits, four home runs, and ten RBIs.
#4 Turning to the Oakland A’s manager Bob Melvin is trying to decide what order his relievers will be coming into ball games, he’s got Trevor Rosenthal as the closer, left handers Jake Diekman and Adam Kolarek are candidates to pitch in the eighth inning, Yusmeiro Petit, Sergio Romo, JB Wendelken, and Lou Trivino are expected to pitch later innings but Melvin is still thinking it through what situations and what innings.
#5 Barbara look for A’s starter Cole Irvin he might replace Mike Fiers who will start the season on the injured list due to an inflamed hip. Fiers recovery is coming along but look for Cole who pitched six innings of shutout ball on Friday night striking out ten hitters on the Los Angeles Dodgers line up which consisted mainly of starting players.
