Cal Vs. USF: Golden Bears Hold Strong For 5-3 Victory At Evans Diamond

No. 25-ranked Cal Golden Bears baseball team used some great pitching and opportunistic offense on Tuesday eventually wrapping up a 5-3 victory over the San Francisco Dons at Evans Diamond.

Senior Chad Bunting, sophomore Andrew Knapp and junior Mitch Delfino all had RBI doubles, scoring three runs in the first two innings off of USF starter Jordan Remer (1-1) pitching only 1.2 innings, with two hits, three runs, two walks, and two strikeouts. .

Senior right-hander Joey Donofrio picked up his first collegiate victory in relief for the Golden Bears, while sophomore Trevor Hildenberger picked up his first collegiate save with the final two outs in the top of the ninth inning.

The Golden Bears improved to 5-2 on the season, while the Dons dropped to 5-3.

Up next for Cal are the Lehigh Mountain Hawks, who come to Berkeley for a three game set at Evans Diamond. Series starts Saturday, March 3 at 2 p.m., then a doubleheader on Sunday, March 4 beginning at 11 a.m. and again at 2:30.
