The Cal Bears, playing in the losers' bracket of the College World Series, defeat Oregon Saturday, 6-3, as Jolene Henderson (Sheldon H.S.) scattered six hits and struck out nine. Cal scored three times in the first inning and twice in the second to take an early lead.
This means Cal must face Alabama Sunday and defeat the Crimson Tide twice to advance to the CWS championship round. In the other semi-final match-up defending champion Arizona State will take on Oklahoma Sunday.
The championship round is the best-out-of-three and will begin Monday. Look for Lindsey Ziegenhirt's blog here shortly.
