Cal quarterback Kyle Boehm saw some time at wide receiver in Saturday's intrasquad scrimmage, as well as a series at quarterback.
"He is a big strong kid that catches the ball, is a good athlete," coach Sonny Dykes said of the 6-foot-3, 215-pound sophomore. "When you have those kind of characteristics, you try to find a place for them to play."
Interestingly, Dykes also said Boehm has "earned another shot at quarterback." Boehm wasn't listed on the quarterback depth chart released Monday by the team. Jared Goff, Austin Hinder and Zach Kline were listed in alphabetical order with the word "or" between their names.
In Saturday's scrimmage, Kline completed 5 of 7 passes and one touchdown.
Dykes said he didn't think any of the quarterbacks separated themselves as the starter Saturday. Devon Rodriguez's second-inning grand slam and solid pitching by Justin Jones lifted the Cal baseball team (12-7, 2-0 Pac-12) to a 9-5 win at Utah (8-8, 0-2). Jones (1-1) allowed two runs in five innings for career win No. 24. Ben Griset (1-1) pitched a five-hitter, striking out 12, and the Saint Mary's baseball team (6-13) posted a 3-0 win over visiting Utah Valley (8-11). The Gaels got the only run they needed on a first-inning RBI single by Brenden Kalfus. The Santa Clara baseball team (8-12) was swept by visiting Michigan State (9-7) -- 7-5 and 9-1. The San Jose State baseball team mustered little offense in a doubleheader loss to visiting Nicholls State, falling 6-1 and 4-1. The No. 5 Cal softball team (23-3) saw its 22-game win streak end, falling 8-1 to Syracuse (9-13) in Honolulu. The Bears had just four hits, one each by Victoria Jones and freshmen Vanessa Alvarez, Jasmin Mejia and Khala Taylor. The Saint Mary's softball team (5-17) posted a season high in runs in a 9-3 win over host Sacramento State (12-8). Megan Smith went 3 for 4 with four RBIs. She boosted her average to .338. The No. 5 Cal women's water polo team (12-5, 0-3 MPSF) held a two-goal lead midway through the fourth quarter, but No. 3 Arizona State (15-4, 3-1) rallied for a 10-9 road win. Emily Csikos led Cal with four goals. Stanford's Kristian Ipsen (De La Salle High) won the platform event at the NCAA Zone E Men's Diving Championships in Colorado Springs. He also won the 1- and 3-meter springboard events, advancing to the NCAA men's swimming and diving championships in three events. The meet is March 28-20 in Indianapolis. Cal's Kahley Rowell placed second in the platform event at the NCAA Zone E Women's Diving Championships in Colorado Springs, qualifying for the NCAA swimming and diving championships. The meet is March 21-23 in Indianapolis.
