UCLA Drops To UC Riverside At Home, 6-4

Feb. 14, 2006

Box Score

Los Angeles - The UCLA baseball team gave up two runs in the top of the ninth inning to drop a 6-4 decision to UC Riverside on Tuesday night at Jackie Robinson Stadium. The Bruins are now 2-5 on the season with the loss, while the Highlanders improve to 5-3.

Freshman Blair Dunlap went 2-for-4 with a run scored and a RBI, senior Chris Jensen added a 2-for-4 performance with a run scored, and junior Tim Stewart chipped in with a two-run double.

The Highlanders took an early lead over the Bruins in the first inning on a solo home run to left field by designated hitter Jeff Dunbar.

The game witnessed a scary moment in the bottom of the second inning. On a drive to left-center field by freshman Jermaine Curtis, UC Riverside left fielder D.J. Hollingsworth made a diving catch to snag an extra-base hit from Curtis, but crashed head first into the wall and appeared to have injured his neck. Hollingsworth had to be driven off the field in an ambulance.

The Bruins tied the game at one run a piece in the third inning after freshman Brandon Crawford hit his third triple of the year down the right field line. Dunlap followed with a single up the middle to score Crawford from third.

UC Riverside added another run in the fifth inning after a ground out to second base by Drew Garcia scored Brian Steinmeyer from third.

The Highlanders would go up 3-1 in the sixth inning on a RBI single by Dunbar. Stewart's two-run double down the left field line would tie the game at 3-3.

UCLA and UCR would exchange runs in the seventh inning, as the Highlanders went up 4-3 on a wild pitch that scored Steinmeyer from third base. Crawford would tie the game up for the Bruins at 4-4 by scoring from third base on a passed ball.

In the top of the ninth, UC Riverside had runners at first and third when Aaron Wible hit a ground ball to senior Sean Carpenter that scored a run on a fielder's choice. The Highlanders would add the go-ahead run on a RBI single by Kyle Barratt.

The Bruins will next travel to Stockton, Calif., for their first road trip of the season when they face the Pacific Tigers for a three-game series beginning Friday, Feb. 17.
