Big Innings Lead UCLA to 12-6 Win Over USC

May 1, 2004

Box Score

UCLA (24-19, 7-7) scored five runs in the fourth inning and four in the seventh en route to a 12-6 win over USC (21-23, 7-7) in front of 723 fans at Jackie Robinson Stadium on Saturday.

The Trojans took an early 4-1 lead heading into the fourth frame. USC would threaten in the fourth as they loaded the bases with no outs. However, Daniel Reid and Scott Botterman forced the Trojans in to two pop-ups and a fly out to keep them off the scoreboard.

In the bottom of the fourth, UCLA put up five runs as a lead-off walk to Chris Denove started the frame. After a catcher's interference call, Brett McMillan would drive in a run with a single to left field. Following a Bruin out, a double from Jarrad Page brought in two more runners. Matt Thayer would the bring Page across home plate with his third home run of 2004. After four, UCLA led 5-4.

The Bruins and Trojans would each put up a run in both the fifth and sixth innings, before UCLA exploded for four runs in the seventh. Four straight hits started the frame as three singles from Griffin, McMillan, and Brandon Averill loaded the bases with one out. Another double from Page would bring two more Bruins across home plate. A two-out double from Mike Svetlic drove in the last two Bruin runs to give UCLA the 12-6 win.

Page led UCLA, going 4-for-4 with four RBI and three runs scored. His hits, runs, and RBIs were all career-highs for the redshirt freshman. McMillan finished the day with three hits and two RBI, while Preston Griffin also had three hits.

Adam Simon picked up his team-leading fourth save of the season as he shut down the Trojan offense in the late innings. Simon held USC to two hits over the final 3.1 innings, while striking out a career-high five batters.

Botterman earned his first collegiate win, throwing 1.1 innings with one strikeout.

The teams will face-off tomorrow at 1:00 p.m. at Jackie Robinson Stadium. Right-hander Bryan Beck (2-3) will take the mound for UCLA.
