Let the Second Season Commence…..

It was a record-setting regular season for the Chico State baseball team notching 41 against only 8 defeats and now the Cats enter the most important time of the year, the post-season.

Chico opens CCAA Tournament play against Cal State Los Angeles. The Wildcats swept the Golden Eagles in mid-April at Nettleton Stadium beating LA 11-8, 7-1 and 8-1 . LA is playing better baseball having won 6-of-their-last-7 after losing 8 in a row.

Chico sends CCAA Pitcher of the Year and Newcomer of the Year Casey Costello to the hill this morning. Costello led the nation in wins with 12 and notched a glittering 2.05 ERA.

Baseball Returns To Wrigley As Cubs Seek Series Edge

By Chandler Guadagnin

ws-gm-3-pitcher-comparison

World Series baseball returns to Wrigley Field for the first time in 71 years tonight, as the Chicago Cubs will look to take advantage of what is sure to be a raucous crowd, seeking a 2-1 series advantage. To accomplish this, Chicago will look to righty Kyle Hendricks. The Cleveland Indians will look to silence the audience as they will hand the ball to their right handed Josh Tomlin.

In his last start in the Postseason, Game 6 of the NLCS, Hendricks bested a shaky Clayton Kershaw. Hendricks shutdown a potent Dodgers offense, going seven and a third shutout innings and allowing only two hits while walking no one.

It was more of the same for Tomlin in his last start. Against the Blue Jays in Game 5 of the ALCS, he went five and two thirds innings, allowing just one run on 3 hits; while walking two and striking out six, to help the Indians to a ALCS Game 2 victory.

With both starting pitchers being so dominant this postseason, it may well be that, the team to score first will claim Game 3. Another X factor will be the effectiveness of the bullpens; and, if it occurs, which ‘pen cracks first.

Chicago’s offense will be without a big bat in the middle of the order, as Kyle Schwarber has been held out of the Cubs lineup. Schwarber who has not played the outfield since his collision and subsequent injury on April 7th, has not been cleared by  the doctor to play the field tonight and will only be available to pinch hit in games 3, 4, and 5.

Catch all the action of historic game 3 from Wrigley Field at 5:00PM PT on Fox or listen via ESPN Radio. Be sure to log on to www.kpaysports.com following the final out for postgame analysis.

Chico State hoops on the road against LA and Dominguez Hills

The Chico State women continued their amazing run through the CCAA with a couple of big road wins in Southern California. The Wildcat women gutted out a 73-67 win over second-place Cal State Los Angeles on Friday night. The Cats got 16 points from Hannah Womack, including four three-pointers as the Cats beat their closest pursuers in the CCAA.

The Wildcats made several hustle plays that led to victory including this sequence late in the game….

This three-pointer from Womack on an in-bounds play underneath the Chico bucket would be the dagger Chico needed….

Chico would bounce back the next night and take on a solid and improving Cal State Dominguez Hills program. Former Chico State coach Molly Goodenbauer had her freshman laden team coming at Chico. The Wildcats led by 17 in the first half but saw the Toros whittle that lead to one late in the game. Chico got this big bucket from Jazmine Miller to go up three with under three minutes to play….

Chico would beat the Toros 70-63 and now sit at 13-1 overall and 9-1 in the CCAA. Wildcat senior Monnie Davidson-Mays would be named the CCAA Player of the Week after her strong offensive and defensive efforts for the Cats. The Cats have a two-game lead in the CCAA over Cal State Los Angeles and Cal Poly Pomona. The Cats will play Monterey Bay and Cal State East Bay coming up this weekend at Acker Gym. The women will play at 5:30 on both nights with our pre-game on Newstalk 1290 KPAY at 5:06pm both nights.

 

It was not a great weekend for the Chico State men as they dropped a pair of road games in tough venues in LA. The Cats suffered their most debilitating loss both physically and mentally on Friday night losing to Cal State Los Angeles 54-53. The Cats not only lost the game, but they lost two starters in the final 5-plus minutes. Jason Conrad was hit hard going for a dunk and suffered a concussion and Amir Carraway pulled his hamstring.

The Cats got off to a great start jumping out to a 13-0 lead on LA. This Rashad Parker three made it look like it might be an easy night for the Cats…..

Defense led to some offense for the Cats late in the first half as the Wildcats would grab a nine-point lead right before the break…

But, Cal State LA would clamp down as it turned into the defensive struggle one would expect from two of the best defensive teams in the country. The Wildcats would have the lead, but seven missed free throws in the second half doomed the Wildcats as they found themselves in a tie game in the waning moments….

Chico had one last chance, but couldn’t take advantage of it as the clock expired…..

On Saturday the Wildcats would be missing three starters and it showed as they scored 3 points in the first 10 minutes of the game and were routed by Dominguez Hills 67-41. With the losses the Cats fall to 8-6 overall and 5-5 in the CCAA and fell into sixth place. The Cats welcome Cal State Monterey Bay and Cal State East Bay to Acker Gym this weekend. Game time for the men is 7:30 on both Friday and Saturday nights.
