The Cal baseball team traveled to Stockton, Calif. Tuesday night to take on the University of the Pacific only to see the game washed out before it could take the field.

No makeup date has been announced. The Bears' next opponent will be No. 3 Cal State Fullerton in a three-game series opening up Friday at 2 p.m. at Evans Diamond.

v To compete with the Titans, Cal (7-12, 1-2 in the Pac-10) has to break out of its hitting slump. The Bears dropped two of three to Washington State last weekend in their first Pac-10 play of the season. The pitching staff turned in a good effort, striking out 16 Cougars Sunday, but it was not good enough for the victory. The Bears' hitters only managed to put three runs on the board in the loss.

Men's Tennis Rained Out

The Cal men's tennis team's home match yesterday with Sacramento State was canceled due to rain.

The match has been rescheduled for April 4 at 1:30 p.m. in Berkeley. The Bears' next competition will be on the road against No. 16 Fresno State Saturday.

Cal (4-2, 1-2 in the Pac-10) is coming off a close loss to No. 1 Stanford, which the Bears lost at the Hellman Tennis Center Saturday, 5-2. Cal took its undefeated rival to three sets in two of their four singles losses, but could not pull off the upset.

Track Hosts Cal

Invitational

The Cal track and field team opens competition this Saturday at 10 a.m. when it hosts the Cal Invitational at Edwards Stadium.

The Bears will compete with Nevada and a number of unattached runners in the meet, which will not be scored. Cal's first scored competition will be March 18 at the UCLA Quad meet.

Cal returns one of the best athletes in the country in decathlon competitor Bevan Hart. The two-time All-American finished second in the NCAA decathlon with 7,773 points last season, and is widely considered the favorite to win the event this season.

Meanwhile, the team returns only one female NCAA qualifier. Sophomore Jennifer Joyce finished 15th in the nation in the hammer throw, with a mark of 183-9. That was significantly less then the 193-0 toss she had at the Pac-10 Championships.
