BERKELEY - Rain in the Stockton area has cancelled the Tuesday, May 25 baseball game between Cal (27-22) and Pacific (31-20). Two teams, preparing for weekend series, will not reschedule the game.

The Golden Bears will be looking to get back on the winning track after losing three Pac-10 games versus No. 10 UCLA last week, falling 8-7, 12-4 and 11-2. Cal concludes the 2010 regular season with a three-game conference series at No. 21 Oregon (37-19, 12-12), May 28-30 (game times 7 p.m., 5 p.m., 1 p.m.) in Eugene.

The selection show for the 2010 NCAA Division I Baseball Championship will be televised Monday, May 31 at 9:30 a.m. Pacific Time on ESPN. This season, the Bears have recorded three sweeps against Pac-10 opponents (Arizona, USC, Oregon State) and have victories over Top-25 opponents Rice, Arkansas and Stanford.

Sophomore shortstop Marcus Semien had a solid series against the Bruins last week, going 6-for-11 (.545) with a double, home run and three RBI. Semien is now batting .335 with a team-high 16 doubles, as well as two triples, four home runs and 34 RBI.

As a team, the Bears are third in the Pac-10 with a .322 team batting average. Individually, junior All-Pac-10 first baseman/outfielder Mark Canha is ranked in the Top-10 in the conference in five different offensive categories, including leading the league with 60 RBI. Canha is batting .333 with 11 doubles and eight home runs, and has a .446 on-base percentage.

Other top hitters for Cal include freshman designated hitter/third baseman Tony Renda (.347, 16-2B, 4-3B, 3-HR, 33 RBI), sophomore catcher Chadd Krist (.339, 14-2B, 3-3B, 9-HR, 37 RBI) and junior second baseman Brian Guinn (.328, 11-2B, 4-3B, HR, 27 RBI).

On the mound, Cal pitchers have notched seven shutouts this year and feature talented starters Erik Johnson (6-2, 3.52 ERA), Justin Jones and Dixon Anderson (4-3, 5.07 ERA). Freshman left-hander Jones is second in the Pac-10 with nine wins (9-5, 3.96 ERA), fourth with 91.0 innings and fifth with 28 strikeouts looking. Jones has been a part of two shutouts and has thrown two complete games this season.
