Three Cal State Northridge players, and one who has signed to play with the Matadors, were among the local players picked Friday, the second day of the major league amateur draft. Northridge most likely will lose Antelope Valley College third baseman Eric Cole, who was picked by the Houston Astros in the 20th round. Cole, who committed to Northridge last month, said he expects to sign with the Astros in the next few days. "I wanted to go to Northridge," said Cole.

One night after rapping out 17 hits, Cal State Northridge was handcuffed by Hawaii's Matt Apana in a 6-0 loss in front of 3,351 Saturday night at Rainbow Stadium. Apana (10-0) held the Matadors to a season-low four hits and struck out 10. He also walked seven batters, but Northridge (20-8, 6-5 in Western Athletic Conference play) did not take advantage, blowing bases-loaded chances in the fourth and sixth innings to suffer their first shutout of the season.

Coach Bill Kernen figures third baseman Jason Shanahan is the closest thing to an Eagle Scout there is on the Cal State Northridge baseball team. Which is why the coach went ballistic Sunday when Shanahan, who isn't considered a malicious sort, was ejected from the Matadors' 12-10 victory over Hawaii. First base umpire Robert Radder ruled that Shanahan intentionally spiked Hawaii first baseman Robert Medeiros after sending a slow roller to the right side.

It had been so long since he'd said so long , Keyaan Cook needed a refresher course in the lost art of the long ball. The Cal State Northridge second baseman hit seven homers last year, but hadn't muscled one out in the first 19 games this season. An hour before his mates showed for their Western Athletic Conference opener against Hawaii, Cook took extra batting practice in an attempt to regain his power stroke. "I was trying to get the feel of hitting one out," he said.

Nobody had to put the words in Josh Smaler's mouth. All he had to do was look at Jason Shanahan, laying face-down at home plate in a cloud of dust, and it came to him in an instant. "Fitting," he said. Shanahan was thrown out at the plate for the final out of the season in the ninth inning as Fresno State hung on for an 8-7 victory over Cal State Northridge in a Western Athletic Conference regular-season finale at Beiden Field.

Bill Kernen was disappointed but philosophical after his Cal State Northridge team blew a three-run lead in a 5-3 loss to Fresno State on Friday night before 2,451 at Beiden Field. Kernen couldn't argue with the laws of baseball. "The game is pretty honest that way," he said. "You give something away, you lose."
