Rainy San Diego Classic begins
Meanwhile, Nevada is in Long Beach, which is supposed to see rainy conditions as well. UNLV hosts a home tourney with showers in the forecast, while Boise State is in Moraga at the St. Mary's tournament with ... wait for it ... showers and wet field conditions forecast at least through Saturday. Finally, San Jose State heads to the Libby Matson Classic in Stockton this weekend and, well, you know.
We may have just found the cure for the worst drought in California history: plan a softball tournament and it's sure to begin raining.
Thursday's Mountain West results
San Diego State 2, BYU 0 -- Sophomore pitcher Danielle O'Toole scattered five hits and struck out eight in a shutout win over the Cougars (7-10). The Aztecs out-hit BYU seven to five, and both teams left eight runners on base.
No. 2 Tennessee 3, San Diego State 1 -- Not many teams in the country get the chance to host the Lady Vols in a non-conference game, but the Aztecs did on Thursday, but couldn't take advantage. Ellen Renfroe picked up her second win over a Mountain West team in five days, holding SDSU to four hits in a complete-game victory.
UC Santa Barbara 6, Nevada 4 -- The Gauchos (12-4) came from behind with a 4-run seventh inning to defeat the Wolf Pack in Long Beach. Nevada trailed 2-1 entering the bottom of the sixth inning before scoring three times to take a 4-2 lead entering the final inning of play.
Long Beach State 4, Nevada 0 -- Pitcher Erin Jones-Wesley allowed three singles and that was all in a shutout of the Wolf Pack. Nevada committed three errors, leading to a pair of unearned runs. The 49ers (10-6) had nine hits against Megan Dorth, who went the distance.
