Baseball Hosts LMU to Begin Second Half of WCC Play

Santa Clara baseball begins the second half of West Coast Conference play with an April 25-27 series against the Loyola Marymount Lions at Schott Stadium this weekend. Friday night's series opener is scheduled for 6 p.m., followed by first pitch times of 3 p.m. Saturday and 1 p.m. Sunday.

Last weekend, the Broncos went to San Diego for the second time this season, and swept the host San Diego Toreros at Fowler Park. Junior T.J. Braff led the Broncos by going 4-for-5 with a home run, four RBIs and two runs scored in an 8-5 victory April 17. On April 18, Peter Hendron pitched 7.0 shutout innings and allowed only five hits to the WCC's leader in batting average as part of a 2-1 win. On April 19, the Broncos came back from a three-run deficit to win 5-3 in 11 innings. With the three-game sweep, the Broncos matched their win total against San Diego from the previous 10 seasons (3-27 from 2003-13).

Jason Seever Is Ready For Action
By Sarah Jackson ('14) /

SCB: Overall, how has your freshman year been for you so far?

JS: Overall, freshman year has been going great. Being away from home has been a fun experience and hanging out with teammates is a good time. The good thing about baseball is you get to meet so many great people and create friendships that would have never occurred if it weren't for the sport.

SCB: Why did you choose Santa Clara?

JS: I chose Santa Clara because it had a beautiful campus, an awesome baseball facility, and the coaches were great people that I would love to spend my college career with. Also it was close to home so I could visit my family whenever and my parents and friends could come out and see me play.
