Cal crushes Dallas Baptist in NCAA Super Regional

The California Golden Bears baseball program is one win away from advancing to the College World Series after clobbering Dallas Baptist, 7-0, in Game 1 of the NCAA Super Regional.

The scoring started in the 2nd inning when Chad Bunting belted a three-run HR to left field, more than enough run support for Cal's starting pitcher, Justin Jones.

The sophomore lefty was magnificent, allowing just one hit and one walk in six innings of work. However, he left the game while warming up before the top of the 7th, citing left bicep discomfort.

Logan Scott relieved Jones and continued the domination over the Patriots' lineup, giving up just two hits in three innings.

The teams will meet again tomorrow at 7:00pm PDT. Should the Patriots win, a do-or-die Game 3 on Monday will determine who advances to the College World Series in Omaha.

Notes: The California baseball program was one of five varsity sports at UC Berkeley that was eliminated in September 2010. However, after a fundraising effort raised nearly 10 million, the program was officially re-instated in April.

Kerr dreams of world with quiet Trump and LaVar Ball: 'Wouldn't that be great?'

In the real world, the President of the United States Donald Trump started a Twitter feud with LaVar Ball on Sunday. 

Trump believes he should have left three college athletes, including Ball's son LiAngelo, in a Chinese jail for shoplifting. In return, Warriors head coach Steve Kerr wants the two to simply stop talking.

"It would be nice for all of us if both of them would just be quiet," Kerr said to reporters at the Barclays Center. "Wouldn't that be great?"

"Modern life. Two people seeking attention and are both getting it, so I'm sure both guys are really happy," Kerr initially said when first asked about the two. 

Unprompted, Kerr then asked reporters for a request to help us all. 

"You know what would help, if all of you stopped covering both of them," Kerr pleaded. "Is that possible? You can probably stop covering LaVar. I don't think you can stop covering the President. I don't think that'll work."
