Preview:

Whittier (5-15): Winners of four of their last seven games, the Poets will look to continue their hot streak in non-league play. WC is fresh off a sweep of Caltech and a 10-3 win over Principa on Wednesday. During the Invitational look for the bats of Darby Weppner and Jacob Storrer to lead the offensive attack. In addition to his duties at the dish, the Poets will rely on the arm of Weppner, along with Mike Rueda, to keep opposing offenses at bay. Last year the Poets were 2-2 in California Invitational play.

Ithaca (0-4): Off to a slow start at 0-4 the Bombers will enter the California Invitational in search of their first win.  So far Ithaca has dropped two games to Chapman University 6-0 and 4-3, and one to each Rutgers-Newark, 16-4, and Redlands, 4-1.

#14 Pomona-Pitzer (13-5): The Sagehens most recently picked up a 2-1 series win over Claremont-M-S and will match up with the Poets in non-league play. Pomona-Pitzer has already taken three games from the Purple Sox in their SCIAC opener in February. 

Puget Sound (8-7): Taking 2-of-3 this past weekend from Whitworth College, the Loggers will look to ride their momentum into California. Puget Sound had an impressive win over Pacific Lutheran, 8-5, early in the year, but lost to Linfield, 6-3. Both are common opponents shared with Whittier.

Rutgers-Newark (2-6): Rutgers beat Ithaca in their last outing 16-4, but have lost by double digits to both Redlands 22-1 and Chapman 31-0. The Scarlet Knights will seek their first road win while in California.
