What a week it’s already been for college baseball. Tuesday saw seven top-25 teams fall in midweek action, including then-undefeated UCLA. It all setting up another exciting slate of weekend series we can’t wait to see.
As we do every week, let’s break down the 10 series we’ll be sure not to miss this coming weekend in DI college baseball.
No. 2 Vanderbilt at No. 6 UCLA kicks off the Southern California Baseball Classic
There’s plenty of action at Jackie Robinson Stadium this weekend at the Southern California Baseball Classic, but the Friday night showdown between these two top-10 heavyweights is the main event. There’s a lot of good news for Vanderbilt heading into this series. Mason Hickman, Kumar Rocker and Jack Leiter have been lights out on the bump and Austin Martin is filling the bill as the offensive leader. Opposite the Commodores, UCLA was absolutely rolling until a Tuesday shocker, losing to UC Santa Barbara. The Bruins were a perfect 11-0 and three of their starting pitchers have sub-1.00 ERAs while Matt McLain has gotten off to the hot start UCLA needed him to.
