Andrew Vaughn hits two more home runs as Cal wraps up sweep of Utah

Andrew Vaughn crushed two homers and had five RBIs, and Korey Lee added a tape-measure blast Cal routed Utah 13-6 and completed a three-game sweep in Salt Lake City.

The Bears (27-15, 13-8 Pac-12) connected for a season-high five home runs and tied their season high in runs. Cameron Eden homered and finished just a double short of the cycle.

The Bears won for the 16th time in their past 20 games. The Utes fell to 12-28, 4-20.

• Second-ranked Stanford (34-8, 17-4 Pac-12) could not complete a three-game sweep at USC (20-24-1, 9-11-1), falling 4-2. Will Matthiessen’s homer accounted for the Cardinal’s runs. Stanford and Cal meet in a three-game series at Evans Diamond beginning Friday night.
