Bruins Take Two From NC State:
UCLA returned home to win two out of three over the visiting North Carolina State Wolfpack. Friday starter Mike Kunes held NC State to five hits in the first seven innings to lead the Bruins to a 8-6 win.

A ten-run fourth inning was the key to UCLA's 12-5 victory on Saturday. A grand slam from Ryan McCarthy and a three-run shot from Billy Susdorf highlighted the inning.

The Bruins would fall short of the sweep, falling 9-6 on Sunday. Preston Griffin hit two home runs, including a three-run homer in the seventh inning.

Fullerton Game Cancelled:
The Bruins' match-up with third-ranked Cal State Fullerton was cancelled on Wednesday due to rain. The game will be made up, but no word of when the date will be.
