Bruins Square Off In Blue-Gold World Series

Nov. 17, 2004

LOS ANGELES, Calif. - There's no national title or gold ring on the line, but this fall's Blue-Gold World Series has plenty riding on it. The 2005 UCLA baseball team is taking its first steps toward beginning its new campaign with a new head coach with this week's annual exhibition series.

The best-of-series, which is played as a set of seven-inning games at Jackie Robinson Stadium, marks the end of fall practice but also signifies the approaching 2005 campaign.

In Monday afternoon's Game One, The Gold Team, led by starting pitcher sophomore Kevin Brophy, took a 1-0 series lead with a 3-2 victory. Brophy faced just one batter over the minimum in his five innings of work, yielding one hit while striking out three. Juniors Scott Botterman and Garett White combined to toss the final two innings in relief with White picking up the save.

Juniors Sean Carpenter and Brett McMillan led the way at the plate for the Gold Team, each knocking two hits and scoring a run. Juniors Chris Jensen and Anthony Norman both chipped in with RBI doubles in the Gold Team's three run first inning.

After surrendering the three runs in the first, Blue Team hurlers sophomore Brian Schroeder, junior Daniel Reid and freshman Brendan Lafferty held the Gold Team scoreless over the remaining six innigns. Sam Ray and Kris Kasarjian each contributed one hit for the Blue Team while Kevin Conlin led the way with two singles.

The two squads will face off in Game Two this afternoon at 2:45. Game Three is scheduled for Thursday afternoon at 5 p.m. If neccesary Game Four will be played at 2:45 on Friday and Game Five at noon on Sunday.
