•Players, teams of note:
Fresno State serving as tournament host for third time this season. Traveled to Judi Garman Classic in Fullerton last week, and lost four straight after opening with 9-0 win over Iowa. Of course, losses were to No. 1 Florida, No. 2 Oregon, No. 15 Baylor and No. 18 Arizona, so there is class relief in this spot. Brenna Moss (.488/.553/.588) is 12 for 16 in steals while adding on to school career record total. … Cal Poly, on three-game win streak, led by ace and El Diamante High alum Sierra Hyland (8-8, 1.98 ERA, 120 Ks, 113 IP). … Minnesota this past weekend took three from Stanford at Cardinal’s Louisville Slugger tournament. Sophomore RH and Team Canada star Sara Groenewegen (11-2, 1.05 ERA, 133 Ks, 80 IP/.369, 5 HR, 15 RBIs), Hannah Granger (.508, 5, 24) showing way.
