Palo Alto, Calif. - Right-hander Tyson Brummett (4-4) pitched his third complete game of the season, allowing two runs (one earned) and six hits while striking out nine to propel UCLA past Stanford, 8-2, in the Pac-10 opener for both teams before 1,957 fans Friday evening at Sunken Diamond. Third baseman Jermaine Curtis led the Bruins with a 2-for-4 effort at the plate and a career-high four RBI.

UCLA (11-14, 1-0 Pac-10) used a five-run fourth inning, highlighted by two-RBI singles from catcher Ryan Babineau and Curtis, to defeat the Cardinal (13-10, 0-1 Pac-10). The Bruins tagged Stanford with eight runs off nine hits. Stanford left-hander Jeremy Bleich (1-4) absorbed the loss after surrendering five runs off seven hits through 5.0 innings.

Right fielder Gabe Cohen initiated the Bruins' five-run fourth inning with a one-out solo home run, his team-leading fourth round-tripper of the year. First baseman Tim Stewart singled to left field and advanced to second when second baseman Alden Carrithers walked. Center fielder Brady Dolan drew a two-out walk, loading the bases. Catcher Ryan Babineau delivered on a 2-and-2 count with a single up the middle, scoring Stewart and Carrithers. Curtis followed with a base-hit to center, plating Dolan and Babineau.

Stanford cut UCLA's lead to 5-1 in the fifth inning. With one out, designated hitter Jason Castro reached first and advanced to second base on an errant throw by shortstop Brandon Crawford. Catcher Brian Juhl brought home Castro with a two-out double to the right-center field gap.

The Bruins added three more in the eighth. After Dolan's sacrifice bunt moved Carrithers and left fielder Justin Uribe to third and second, respectively, Carrithers scored UCLA's sixth run, advancing on a wild pitch. Babineau reached first on an infield single, before both Uribe and Babineau came home on Curtis' double to right-center field.

Stanford right fielder Michael Taylor blasted his fourth home run of the season in the bottom of the ninth, cutting the Bruins' advantage to 8-2.

UCLA and Stanford resume their series with 1 p.m. starts on Saturday and Sunday at Sunken Diamond.

Game Notes: The Bruins improve to 135-185 overall against the Cardinal and have won three of the last four meetings between both schools...UCLA has now won seven of its last 12 Pac-10 openers...Tyson Brummett retired the first 10 batters before Stanford second baseman Adam Sorgi singled to left field with one out in the bottom of the fourth; Brummett responded to the single by inducing Michael Taylor to ground into a double play (scored 6-4-3).
