As the Toreros come off of a successful week, we are preparing for another great weekend full of great opportunities!

After claiming wins from Long Beach State, Cal Poly, Missouri and Fresno State, the team is beginning to show promising signs. Our pitching staff is really settling in, and it is quite impressive to see.

Top to bottom, our staff is continuing to produce quality outings from highly touted prospects like Brian Matusz and Josh Romanski, underappreciated veterans like Matt Couch and emerging stars like Kyle Blair and Sammy Solis, not to mention the countless performers coming out of possibly the deepest pen the Toreros have seen.

Offense comes and goes in this game, but if we continue to pitch and play defense, I see this team playing well into June. On the offensive side of the ball, it is tough to ignore the struggles as of late, but we are hard at work to perform on a more constant basis at the championship level we can. We have the ability to really hit and really execute, and when things go right, I really believe there isn't a team that can beat us.

If there is one thing that is almost guaranteed once you become a Torero, it's that you will have the opportunity to play against the best in the nation. Our schedule continues to be jam-packed with opponents that give us the opportunity to get better. This weekend, we take on a solid Oklahoma State opponent and the defending National Champion Oregon State Beavers as well as conference foes Santa Clara and LMU.

With a slew of Torero arms locked and loaded - combined with a hungry offense - the Toreros are poised for battle.
