USC has won just three of its first nine baseball games.
Maybe that’s because seven players are in the midst of serving a six-week suspension, according to sources.
The players were suspended for visiting a Southern California casino, which broke the COVID-19 protocols set in place by the athletic dept. Most of the suspended players were pitchers, a source said. The suspension is supposed to last about two more weeks.
USC lost to UCLA, 10-1, on Sunday and even dropped 2 of 3 games to Cal Poly San Luis Obispo earlier in the season.
