Cal State Fullerton's baseball team moved into the No. 1 spot in the polls conducted by Collegiate Baseball and Baseball America this week after winning the Anaheim Hilton & Towers Classic at Titan Field over the weekend. The Titans' top pitcher, Ted Silva, had trouble at times against Texas, giving up 11 hits in 5 2/3 innings, but still got his fifth victory of the season without a loss. The Titans' hitting, however, has been a big factor in their success.

Cal State Fullerton's Kirk Saarloos added another pitching gem to his collection Sunday, and this one turned out to be a no-hitter. Saarloos walked one batter and hit another in the second inning, but was overwhelming the rest of the way in a 28-0 victory over Pacific in a Big West Conference game at Fullerton. It was only the second nine-inning no-hitter for a Fullerton pitcher since it moved up to Division I in 1975. The other was by Ted Silva in 1995, also against Pacific.

I agree with eight of the nine [recommended] points for the new Los Angeles mayor ("Mending the Cracks in Los Angeles," by Bill Boyarsky, June 3). The ninth--bringing a National Football League team to L.A.--is not needed to "bring L.A. together." The millions that would be required to secure a team, stadium and parking structure could be used to build the arts in Los Angeles--which would do far more good in bringing the city, county and state together. If the first eight points were accomplished and successful, then by all means move to the ninth.

Cal State Fullerton second baseman Jeff Ferguson was named Big West Conference player of the year, and teammate Matt Wagner was named pitcher of the year by conference baseball coaches. Ferguson, a junior who hit .388 with 54 runs batted in and 64 runs scored, was named co-player of the year with Nevada shortstop Mark Lewis. Nevada's Gary Powers was named conference coach of the year after leading the Wolf Pack to a share of the conference title with Fullerton and Long Beach State.
