LONG BEACH — While the occupants of the Long Beach State dugout were wondering how he was doing it Sunday, UC Irvine sophomore starting pitcher Danny Bibona was wondering the same thing about battery mate Aaron Lowenstein. Bibona, who allowed six hits and one run in 6 2/3 innings to record his fifth victory in six decisions this season, did so in 90-degree-plus temperatures in the 4-1 Big West Conference triumph in front of 1,655 at Blair Field. But Bibona wasn’t finishing off 27 innings in 46-plus hours, the last 18 in sweltering daytime heat.

A man who ejaculated into a co-worker's water bottle on two occasions is hoping to have his conviction overturned on the grounds that he believes he didn't batter the victim, his attorney said. A jury convicted Michael Kevin Lallana, 34, of Fullerton of two misdemeanor counts of battery in February 2011, but his attorney, E. Thomas Dunn, said that because no force was used, Lallana didn't batter the woman. "What Michael Lallana did was morally disgusting … but not battery," Dunn said.
