USD aiming to stay atop conference standings against one of its biggest conference rivals
It doesn’t seem to matter which program is enjoying the better season, whenever USD and USF get together it remains competitive.
Over the past decade and a half in West Coast Conference play, the two schools have split their 14 series. The Toreros won last year’s series at Fowler Park by taking two of three games.
USD (16-7, 5-1 WCC) shares the conference lead with Gonzaga as it travels this weekend to USF (14-14, 3-3), which is intent on not falling too far behind in the standings.
The Dons, averaging .221 batting and scoring fewer than four runs a game, will have to be more productive offensively to have a chance. USD, by contrast, is hitting .293 while averaging 6.4 runs a game.
USD junior catcher Caleb Rickett earned WCC Player of the Week last week and is now batting .315 with three homers while handling the Toreros pitching staff.
Toreros sophomore first baseman Kevin Sim leads the WCC with nine homers and his 27 RBIs is one off the conference lead in the category.
This week: Friday-Sunday at USF 3 p.m./1 p.m./1 p.m.
UC San Diego (8-15, 1-2 Big West) returns to conference play following Tuesday’s 4-0 victory at San Diego State.
UCSD starting pitcher Cole Dale tossed three scoreless innings against the Aztecs and teammates Lonnie Morris, Zach Ernisse and Ryan Rissas each added two apiece. The effort dropped the Tritons’ team ERA to 4.91, the lowest it has been since opening the season with five wins in six games.
A similar trend would be welcome this week at Long Beach State (13-10, 3-3), which is second in the conference in hitting (.275) while averaging 5.3 runs a game.
The Dirtbags are coming off Tuesday’s 5-4 win at Pepperdine. UCSD won two of three meetings between the schools when they met last year at Triton Ballpark.
This week: Friday-Sunday at Long Beach State, 6 p.m./3 p.m./1 p.m.
SDSU (5-19, 0-9 Mountain West) travels to preseason favorite Nevada (11-12, ) in the midst of the Aztecs’ longest losing streak to open conference play.
Nevada had some struggles of its own the past week in a pair of nonconference series, losing two of three games at Missouri State and two games versus Oregon State.
SDSU’s challenges are primarily due to an anemic offense that ranks last in the conference in batting (.226) while averaging fewer than four runs a game. It’s quite a contrast to a year ago when the Aztecs batted .335 and scored 9.1 runs a game (third in the nation).
Nevada is led by senior third baseman Josh Zamora (.364, 9 HR, 32 RBIs), who is bidding for the Mountain West triple crown. He leads the conference in homers and RBIs and is seventh in batting average.
This week: Friday-Sunday at Nevada, 6 p.m./6 p.m./1 p.m.
Sea Lions update
Point Loma Nazarene (23-3, 9-3 PacWest) matches up with Biola (12-12, 8-4), which slipped to .500 on the season with three losses last week against Azusa Pacific but finds itself just a game behind PLNU in the conference standings (though these are nonconference games).
Biola’s pitching staff is reeling after allowing 56 runs in those three losses. It doesn’t get any easier against a Sea Lions team that leads the PacWest with a .303 batting average while scoring nearly seven runs a game.
PLNU sophomore third baseman Otto Kemp leads the conference in OPS (1.166) and is among the top three in home runs (8), RBIs (26), runs (32) and slugging (.695).
The Sea Lions continue to lead the conference with a 2.07 ERA (Fresno Pacific is second at 3.69), with starters Baxter Halligan (1.10), Dylan Miller (2.25) and Jack Gonzales (2.31) ranked 1-2-3 in the category.
This week: Friday vs. Biola (DH), Noon, Saturday at Biola (DH), 11 a.m.
Cal State San Marcos (10-16, 6-10 CCAA) will be challenged by the California Collegiate Athletic Conference’s top pitching staff from Cal State Monterey Bay (20-9, 15-5), which ranks 20th in the nation with a 3.63 ERA.
The No. 21-ranked Otters are a half-game behind first place Chico State in the CCAA standings following a four-game sweep of Stanislaus State. The Cougars are tied for sixth place.
Cal State San Marcos junior right-hander Garrett Apker (3-1, 2.54 ERA), coming off a complete-game win last week at Chico State, ranks second in the conference in strikeouts (50) and strikeouts/nine innings (11.54). Apker is 25 strikeouts shy of Johnny Holtman’s school record of 168 career Ks.
This week: Friday-Sunday vs. Cal State Monterey Bay, 3 p.m./Noon (DH)/11 a.m.

USD keeps coming back against Saint Mary’s in Sunday’s finale and comes away an 11-6 winner
If USD chose a word to represent its three-game West Coast Conference sweep of Saint Mary’s it would probably be this: relentless.
That would describe Friday’s 4-2 victory, which designated hitterRJ Teijeiro delivered with a two-run homer in the bottom of the 10th inning at Fowler Park.
It also would account for the effort of sophomores Brycen Mautz (5-1) and Conner Thurman, who combined on a five-hitter in Saturday’s 4-1 win.
And relentless is most certainly how to characterize Sunday’s 11-6 victory, which required USD to respond twice from three-run deficits.
The Toreros (15-7, 5-1 WCC) moved into a first-place tie with Gonzaga (16-6, 5-1) with the sweep.
Saint Mary’s (14-10, 0-6) opened Sunday’s finale with three runs in the first inning. USD responded with three runs in the second. The Gaels went up 6-3 with three runs in the top of the fifth and the Toreros came back with three in their half of the inning to tie it.
USD broke the game open with a five-run eighth, stringing together three singles with an error, a bunt and a stolen base for the first three scores before outfielder Jack Costello added an exclamation mark with a two-run homer.
USD senior right-hander Garrett Rennie, who returned this season from Tommy John surgery, got the relentless theme started Friday with his best outing of the season. Rennie limiting the Gaels to one run on five hits over 7 1/3 innings with eight strikeouts.
This week: Tuesday at Cal Baptist, 6 p.m., Friday-Sunday at USF 3 p.m./1 p.m./1 p.m.
San Diego State (5-18, 0-9 MW) was swept for the third straight week in the Mountain West, extending SDSU’s record winless streak to start conference play.
The Aztecs’ offensive struggles — they lost to Fresno State on 3-1, 8-2 and 4-0 scores — continued against the Bulldogs (12-12, 6-3). SDSU actually outhit Fresno State (five hits to three hits) on Sunday, but couldn’t string anything together.
SDSU resumes the Trolley Series against UC San Diego on Tuesday at Tony Gwynn Stadium. The Aztecs won 14-7 last week at UCSD, representing their only victory in the past 11 games.
This week: Tuesday vs. UC San Diego, 6 p.m., Friday-Sunday at Nevada, 6 p.m./6 p.m./1 p.m.
UC San Diego (8-15, 1-2 Big West) outscored Cal Poly in the teams’ three-game series. Unfortunately for the Tritons, most of the runs came in Saturday’s 12-1 win at Triton Ballpark.
The Mustangs (13-10, 5-1) opened the series with Friday’s 7-1 win — recording 20 of 27 outs on strikeouts — and closed it out with Sunday’s 4-2 victory.
UCSD catcher Emiliano Gonzalez had a game-high four RBIs in the Tritons’ win. Gonzalez and teammates Brandon FitzGerald and Marc Fila each had three hits in the game.
This week: Tuesday at SDSU, 6 p.m., Friday-Sunday at Long Beach State, 6 p.m./3 p.m./1 p.m.
Sea Lions update
Point Loma Nazarene (23-3, 9-3 PacWest) won its ninth series of the season behind the PacWest’s top pitching staff, which allowed only 13 runs over four games against Holy Names (13-19, 6-13) and actually saw its staff ERA rise from 2.07 to 2.21.
Senior left-hander Baxter Halligan (6-1, 1.10 ERA) allowed four hits and one run over six innings with 10 strikeouts to get the series started Friday with a 2-1 win. The Sea Lions added an 8-3 victory in the doubleheader.
Holy Names edged PLNU 5-4 in the first game of Saturday’s doubleheader before the Sea Lions responded with a 5-3 win in the second game.
Freshman first baseman Jakob Christian went 8-for-16 — including a two-run homer in the finale — with four RBIs to lead the Sea Lions in the series.
No. 3-ranked PLNU is tied atop the PacWest standings with Azusa Pacific (17-10, 9-3), which has won 11 straight games after losing three of four against the Sea Lions to open conference play.
This week: Friday vs. Biola (DH), Noon, Saturday at Biola (DH), 11 a.m.
Cal State San Marcos (10-16, 6-10 CCAA) salvaged the final game of its four-game series at No. 18 Chico State, finally getting some pitching in Sunday’s 2-1 victory.
Junior right-hander Garrett Apker (3-1) went the distance in the win, allowing four hits and no earned runs with 11 strikeouts.
Chico State (22-6, 15-4) scored in double digits in each of the three previous games — winning 18-4, 11-3, 10-6 — while strengthening its hold on first place in the California Collegiate Athletic Association.
The Cougars watched their team ERA rise to 7.64.
This week: Friday-Sunday vs. Cal State Monterey Bay, 3 p.m./Noon (DH)/11 a.m.
NYC Amazon Workers Vote to Unionize, a First for the Company

NEW YORK — Amazon workers in Staten Island, New York, voted to unionize on Friday, marking the first successful U.S. organizing effort in the retail giant’s history and handing an unexpected win to a nascent group that fueled the union drive.
Warehouse workers cast 2,654 votes in favor of a union, giving the fledgling Amazon Labor Union enough support to pull off a victory. According to the National Labor Relations Board, which is overseeing the process, 2,131 workers rejected the union bid.
The 67 ballots that were challenged by either Amazon or the ALU were not enough to sway the outcome. About 57% of the more than 8,300 workers on the voter list cast their ballots.
Federal labor officials said the results of the count won’t be verified until they process any objections that both parties may file. Any objections are due by April 8.
The victory was an uphill battle for the independent group, made up of former and current workers who lacked official backing from an established union and were out-gunned by the deep-pocketed retail giant. Despite obstacles, organizers believed their grassroots approach was more relatable to workers and could help them overcome where established unions have failed in the past.
Tristan Dutchin, who began working for the online retailer about a year ago, is hopeful that the new union will improve working conditions at his workplace.
“I’m excited that we’re making history,” Dutchin said. “We’re about to unionize a multibillion, trillion-dollar company. This will be a fantastic time for workers to be surrounded in a better, safer working environment.”
Chris Smalls, a fired Amazon employee who has been leading the ALU in its fight on Staten Island, bounded out the NLRB building in Brooklyn on Friday with other union organizers, pumping their fists and jumping, chanting “ALU.” They uncorked a bottle of champagne.
Meanwhile, Amazon workers in Bessemer, Alabama, appear to have rejected a union bid but outstanding challenged ballots could change the outcome. The votes were 993-to-875 against the union. A hearing to review 416 challenged ballots is expected to begin in the next few days.
The union campaigns come at a time of widespread labor unrest at many corporations. Workers at more than 140 Starbucks locations around the country, for instance, have requested union elections and several of them have already been successful.
John Logan, director of labor and employment studies at San Francisco State University, said the early vote counts in New York have been “shocking.” The nascent Amazon Labor Union, which is leading the charge on Staten Island, has no backing from an established union and is powered by former and current warehouse workers.
“I don’t think that many people thought that the Amazon Labor Union had much of a chance of winning at all,” Logan said. “And I think we’re likely to see more of those (approaches) going forward.”
After a crushing defeat last year in Bessemer, when a majority of workers voted against forming a union, the Retail, Wholesale and Department Store Union got a second chance to organize another campaign when the NLRB ordered a do-over after determining that Amazon tainted the first election.
Though RWDSU is currently lagging in the latest election, Logan said the early results were still remarkable because the union has made a good effort narrowing its margin from last year.
Amazon has pushed back hard in the lead-up to both elections. The retail giant held mandatory meetings, where workers were told unions are a bad idea. The company also launched an anti-union website targeting workers and placed English and Spanish posters across the Staten Island facility urging them to reject the union. In Bessemer, Amazon has made some changes to but still kept a controversial U.S. Postal Service mailbox that was key in the NLRB’s decision to invalidate last year’s vote.
In a filing released on Thursday, Amazon disclosed it spent about $4.2 million last year on labor consultants, which organizers say the retailer routinely solicits to persuade workers not to unionize. It’s unclear how much it spent on such services in 2022.
Both labor fights faced unique challenges. Alabama, for instance, is a right-to-work state that prohibits a company and a union from signing a contract that requires workers to pay dues to the union that represents them.
The union landscape in Alabama is also starkly different from New York. Last year, union members accounted for 22.2% of wage and salary workers in New York, ranked only behind Hawaii, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. That’s more than double the national average of 10.3%. In Alabama, it’s 5.9%.
The mostly Black workforce at the Amazon facility, which opened in 2020, mirrors the Bessemer population of more than 70% Black residents, according to the latest U.S. Census data.
Pro-union workers say they want better working conditions, longer breaks, and higher wages. Regular full-time employees at the Bessemer facility earn at least $15.80 an hour, higher than the estimated $14.55 per hour on average in the city. That figure is based on an analysis of the U.S. Census Bureau’s annual median household income for Bessemer of $30,284, which could include more than one worker.

Men’s basketball outscores Biola University in fourth consecutive win

On Nov. 20, the CPP men’s basketball team traveled to La Mirada, California to play against Biola University at the Chase Gymnasium, defeating the opposing team with a 60-49 final score. Entering the game with three consecutive non-conference wins, the victory gave the Broncos a 4-0 record.
Throughout the first half, the Broncos maintained control of the game, reaching halftime with a score of 28-20. At the start of the second half, Biola went on an 8-0 run to tie the game 28-28. Initially struggling to preserve their lead during the match, the Broncos did not waste time in finding their footing and claiming victory.
According to Head Coach Greg Kamansky, the team struggled to find a consistent rhythm of play, given the number of new players who joined the team this season. However, his hopes of dominating future conference matches remain intact.
“We’re just happy to play basketball. You know the old cliche: if something gets taken away, you don’t realize how important it is until it gets taken away,” Kamansky said. “We pretty much have almost a whole new team so we’re basically starting with a lot of new players, new stuff going on and so, to be honest, we don’t know what to expect.”
For senior guard Phoenix Shackelford, who finished the game with 10 points, four rebounds and two steals, this season is special. It will be his last before graduating.
“Basketball is my life; it’s everything to me,” Shackelford said. “I was trying to find every way to play basketball. They were taking the hoops down at local parks, so I had to drive like 30 minutes just to play basketball.”
Despite the struggles the team faced in establishing player dynamics on the court, Kamansky believes the Broncos retaliated against Biola’s aggressive offense well.
“What I was most proud of is that we responded,” Kamansky said. “After they caught us, we didn’t fold, and it was a good experience for us. I was really happy about that.”
One of the few returning players on the team, senior guard and forward Tavian Henderson has made continuous efforts to be vocal and use his experience to help his teammates.
“I try to use that to my advantage to be able to lead our team and whatever that may be whether that’s directing the core with play calls or calling out certain spots that guys need to be,” Henderson said. “That’s one of my main goals is going to games: to make sure we’re situated and putting ourselves in the best position to win the game whether that’s offensively or defensively.”
Henderson ended the game with his first collegiate double-double, with 12 points and 12 rebounds. The team finished the game shooting 45.3% over Biola’s 34.5%.
Advancing in conference play, Kamansky is specifically focused on playing each game more strategically than the last. Because each matchup is different, the Broncos will have to adapt to each opposing team as the season progresses, according to Kamansky.
“Our end goal is making the NCAA tournament,” Kamansky said. “Our region’s really tough, but that’s our ultimate goal. Anything can happen if we prove we can win games and we won a championship one year. So, making the tournament and then hopefully we’re prepared and ready to go from there.”
After defeating Stanislaus State 66-54 on Dec. 2, the Broncos now have an overall record of 5-1.
