2-0 lead put on ice as rain comes down

BERKELEY -- The first game of the Cal baseball team's three-game series against the visiting Ohio State Buckeyes was suspended this afternoon, after the two squads had played one inning, leaving the Bears up, 2-0.
The game will be continued on Sunday at 1 PM as the two teams try to play yet another doublheader.
Friday's game was pushed to Saturday as part of a twin bill, but heavy rains delayed the start time from 11 AM to 1 PM. When the tarp was finally rolled off, Cal junior righty Erik Johnson took the hill. Johnson struggled with his control, walking the first two hitters he faced on 11 pitches.
Designated hitter Josh Dezse sent a 1-2 sacrifice bunt up the third base line, putting runners at second and third.
Next, center fielder Brian DeLucia chopped a 1-2 outside pitch up the third base line again for Delfino, who alertly threw home to catcher Chadd Krist, who tagged shortstop Tyler Engle out at home.
Johnson then caught third baseman Matt Streng looking at strike three at his knees to end the threat and set the stage for his own offense.
Sophomore left fielder Vince Bruno led off the bottom of the first with a line drive single just to the left of the second base bag and into center field. Junior shortstop Marcus Semien then worked a five-pitch walk from Ohio State starter Dean Wolosianski, and another free pass to sophomore second baseman Tony Renda loaded the bases for Krist.
Krist sent a 2-1 fastball hopping through the left side, bounding right between Streng's legs to score two runs, both unearned.
At 1:33 -- just 31 minutes after Johnson delivered his first pitch -- the tarp went right back on the field.
BearTerritory will be back on hand Sunday at Evans Diamond at 1 PM.
