Mike Mayne, the Orange Coast College baseball coach from 1977-92, proved to be a bit prophetic with a statement he made before the College World Series began. “... We’re playing pretty doggone good right now and I think we can do some damage here [in Omaha],” Mayne, Fresno State’s pitching coach, told the Daily Pilot in a story published June 15, the day the Bulldogs began their improbable CWS run. “If we win that first game, watch out.” Mayne and Fresno State won that first game and did plenty of damage, becoming the lowest seed to win an NCAA championship on Wednesday night.

The NCAA baseball tournament selection committee didn’t seem to do any favors for UC Irvine, the nation’s top-ranked team. But that doesn’t appear to be much of a concern for the Anteaters, the Big West Conference champions playing in their first regional at home. “The team’s excited to host a regional,” UC Irvine pitcher Danny Bibona said. “We’ve gone on the road for the past few years for the postseason so we’re excited to be at home and to be playing in front of our fans.

Ted Silva, a former Cal State Fullerton All-American, has been chosen by UC Irvine baseball coach Mike Gillespie to become the Anteaters’ pitching coach. Silva was the pitching coach at Fresno State last season, after spending two seasons as volunteer assistant and pitching coach at Cal State Fullerton in 2005-06. Silva becomes the second full-time assistant for Gillespie, the former USC coach who was hired to fill the void created when Dave Serrano left to become coach at Cal State Fullerton.

FRESNO ? UC Irvine Coach Pat Douglass' men's basketball team was trounced by host Fresno State, 82-51, Sunday in the finale of the Basketball Travelers Classic in front of 10,163 at the Save Mart Center. But it was Douglass who said he owed an offseason favor to Bulldogs Coach Steve Cleveland, a UCI graduate who was MVP of the 1975-76 Anteaters and who still spends time every summer in Newport Beach. "I take my hat off to Coach Cleveland; he has a nice club," Douglass said after the Bulldogs (3-0)

Gillespie said determining who would start subsequent games in the four-team, double-elimination Los Angeles Regional that also includes UCLA and San Francisco, would be decided later, based upon the opponent. Summers, a junior right-hander who threw a no-hitter in his final regular-season start, was named Big West Conference Pitcher of the Year on Monday.

UCLA transfer Natalia Ledezma came to UC Irvine to win friends and influence scoreboards. The sophomore had managed the former by blending her unselfish style of play and an infectiously vibrant personality with a group of new teammates, a large number of whom contributed to the Anteaters' 19-3-2 campaign in 2010. Ledezma, a former ESPN Rise second-team All-American at La Mirada High who also played for the U.S. national team at the under-15, U-17 and U-18 levels, wasted little time achieving the latter as well.

Ramsey Hufford's dream is to play in the NFL. If that doesn't pan out, he wants an education to fall back on. Hufford, Newport Harbor High's 6-foot-4, 300-pound lineman, said on Tuesday he verbally committed to the UC Davis football program. He said academics played a key role in his decision to join the Aggies, an NCAA Football Championship Subdivision program, instead of Fresno State, which competes in the higher NCAA Football Bowl Subdivision. Fresno State and UC Davis each gave Hufford offers before his senior season at Newport Harbor, where he went on to excel at left tackle and defensive tackle.

With the UC Irvine baseball team this season, Moore has meant less for opposing hitters. Anteaters junior closer Sam Moore nailed down his nation-leading 15th save Saturday to help UCI claim a 5-4 Big West Conference victory over visiting Cal State Northridge. It was the fourth consecutive conference game that Moore has saved for UCI and the 6-foot-1, 200-pound right-hander has not blown a save opportunity this season. Moore got the final five outs Saturday, the 10th time he has pitched more than one inning to collect a save, and continues to defy the odds, as well as hitters, by collecting outs without big-time velocity.

With two teams firing in threes and draining the majority of their shots, including two three-pointers in the final 2.1 seconds, the most glaring miss was the opportunity to begin what may be a landmark UC Irvine men's basketball season with a victory Friday night. The Anteaters, who led for most of the contest and never trailed by more than one, fell to visiting Fresno State, 98-97, when senior guard Allen Huddleston banked in a leaning, 42-foot three-pointer just before the buzzer in overtime, the last of 25 combined three-pointers in the nonconference season opener for both teams at the Bren Events Center.
