Big games can add up to big weeks, especially in college baseball.

That was certainly the case for former area players Alex Crosby, Nick Spini, Domenick Romero and Juliene Jones.

Crosby (Wood, Solano) went 5 for 5, including a two-run homer, to help Sonoma State (6-4) edge Cal State East Bay 8-7 in 10 innings. He earlier went 2 for 2 and was hit by a pitch in a 3-2 win over the Pioneers. Crosby wound up batting .533 (8 for 15) for the week with four runs scored and three RBIs. Former Solano teammate Anthony Pezzola picked up two wins in relief for SSU.

Spini (Armijo, Solano) also batted .533 (8 for 15) as East Central (5-8) was 3-1. He went 2 for 4 with three RBIs in an 11-4 walloping of Texas Wesleyan and 2 for 4 with a solo home run in a 12-1 humbling of Henderson State. Spini closed his week by going 3 for 4 with a double in a 6-2 downing of Henderson State.

Friends University (7-4) went just 2-3 during the week but Romero (Rodriguez) had his best games in the victories, going 3 for 5 with a double and then 2 for 3 with a double in 11-1 and 5-0 wins over Brian Cliff. For the week Romero batted .421 (8 for 19 with six runs, four RBIs and at least one hit in every game, including a triple.

Jones (Vanden) ripped a two-run double as part of a four-run seventh inning for Hawaii (4-4) in a 12-6 crunching of Albany. He went 2 for 4 with four RBIs in that game and 2 for 4 with two runs scored in a 9-7 eclipsing of the same foe. Jones batted a robust .389 (7 for 18) for the week with five runs and five RBIs, getting at least one hit in all five games.

California (5-2) went 3-0 in the Tiger Classic at Auburn with Brenden Farney (Fairfield, Vacaville) getting a two-run single in a 5-0 blanking of the host team. Farney batted .286 (2 for 7) for the tourney.

Gene Nanney (Rodriguez, Solano) had a hit and scored a run as Culver Stockton (3-7) fell 10-9 to Lyon.

Jordan Hazeltine (Wood) gave up a hit and a run in an inning for San Francisco in a 7-6 win over Kansas State.

Tyler Stover (Vacaville) went 0 for 1 in that game for Kansas State (1-7), but otherwise had a decent week in the Gael Invitational at Saint Mary’s. He had two walks, scored a run and a sacrifice fly in a 9-4 win over the host team and later had a double and scored a run in a 7-3 loss to the Gaels.

Sam Hedrick (Rodriguez) saved his best game of the week for last, going 2 for 3 with two runs scored, three RBIs and was also hit by a pitch in a 19-1 blasting of Southwest by Eastern New Mexico (10-2). He was 1 for 12 in the other three games, all victories, with that hit being a triple.

Santa Clara (5-4) opened the week with an 8-0 loss to Cal Poly San Luis Obispo before going 4-0, including two wins over Notre Dame, in the Irish Baseball Classic in San Antonio, Texas. C.J. Jacob (Vacaville) went 2 for 3 with a double and an RBI in a 16-3 downing of Incarnate Word. He finished 3 for 11 for the week.

A.J. Quintero (Vacaville) got the defeat for Cal State Monterey Bay (5-10) in a 12-11 loss to Cal State Los Angeles, giving up three hits and three runs in one-third of an inning. He rebounded with 1 2/3 scoreless innings in a 12-2 loss to the same team.

Bellevue (2-5) took two of three from Sterling with Aaron Brasher (Solano) getting a double and three RBIs in the three games.

Softball

Jordan Wallace (Fairfield) and Cheyenne Cordes (Rodriguez) both homered for California (7-6) in a 5-2 win over Texas in the Mary Nutter Collegiate Classic. Wallace ripped a  two-run blast in the third inning and went 2 for 4 for the tournament, while Cordes hit a solo shot in the fourth, batting .444 (4 for 9) with two sacrifice flies and four walks.

Also in the Nutter Classic, Oregon State (5-11) went 2-3 with Kiara “Ya” Garcia (Rodriguez) going 1 for 12, that hit a double in a 9-1 win over Virginia.

Andriana Collins (Rodriguez) earned her second straight victory for UC Santa Barbara, giving up four hits and one run over the first four innings a 2-1 win over Wichita State to open the Unconquered Classic at Florida State.

Marissa Escalante (Rodriguez) had a pinch-hit single in the bottom of the fourth inning to drive in the only run in UC Riverside’s 1-0 win over Cal State Bakersfield in the Highlanders’ own Amy S. Harrison Classic. She also drove in the only run in a 3-1 loss to Seattle, also as a pinch hitter, and hit .429 (3 for 7) for the week as the UCR (6-8) went 3-2.

Alyssa Landrith (Vacaville) of Rutgers (5-4) sandwiched a pair of losses around a masterful three-hit shutout of Massachusetts in the Clearwater (Fla.) Leadoff Classic. She fanned 11 and walked three in the victory.

In Idaho State’s 14-5 stomping of Seton Hall in the Diamond Devil Invitational at Arizona State, Gabby Lopez (Rodriguez) had a pinch-hit double for the Bengals (6-5) in a four-run seventh inning.

Former Solano teammates squared off in the Oklahoma Baptist Spring Festival as Hannah Wilbur of the host team got the best of Dana Manibusan and Hastings, 11-3. Wilbur allowed six hits and two earned runs, striking out 11 and walking two. Manibusan went 1 for 3 with a run and two stolen bases.

Oklahoma Baptist (4-5) went 2-2 in the tourney with Wilbur getting a loss in relief to Mid-America Christian and a no-decision in a loss to Baker.

Manibusan later went 3 for 4 for Hastings (3-1) in a 4-1 win over OBU, though Wilbur didn’t pitch in that game.

Saint Andrews (3-9) went 1 for 4 for the week with Autumn Price (Wood, Solano) going 0 for 4.

Louisiana-Monroe (12-4) rolled to five wins in six games in its own Warhawk Classic and Rochelle Roberts (Vanden) played a part. The former Viking batted .333 (3 for 9) with a triple, but walked five times for a .571 on-base percentage. She scored six runs and stole two bases.

Bethune Cookman (1-11) went 0-2 in the Jacksonville Invitational before its final two games were rained out. Calesha Shelly (Armijo) batted .429 (3 for 7) when the Wildcats got to play, scoring two of their four runs.
