3/1: College Baseball: UCLA at UCSB: Both teams are coming off stellar 2015 seasons (UCLA went 42-14 and UCSB 40-17-1), but while the Bruins are loaded with 24 returning players from the Pac-12 championship team, the Gauchos needed reloading after 11 players were drafted or signed by major-league organizations. They do return starting pitcher Shane Bieber and leadoff hitter Andrew Calica. The new guys looked sharp last weekend, as UCSB swept four games against the University of San Francisco. After their Tuesday showdown with the Bruins, the Gauchos will travel to face Oregon, another Pac-12 power, in a weekend series. 2pm. Caesar Uyesaka Stadium, UCSB. $5-$8.
