The Titans added four more runs in the fourth inning, capped off by a two-run home run to center field by Tripp with two outs to extend their lead to 10-3.

UCLA put another run on the scoreboard in the sixth inning, as Norman drilled a one-out triple down the left field line. Curtis followed with a ground out to shortstop to score Norman from third and cut the Titans' lead to 10-4.
