LOS ANGELES, Calif. - Cal Poly left-hander Garrett Olson held UCLA to one run over eight-plus innings as the No. 38 Mustangs rebounded to defeat the Bruins 2-1 in the nightcap of today's doubleheader at Jackie Robinson Stadium. UCLA (1-1) mustered a ninth-inning rally but fell short with the potential winning run on first base.
Cal Poly opened the scoring with a run in the first off of a Josh Lansford RBI double. The Bruins struck back with the tying run in the fourth when Chris Denove picked up his first RBI of the year with a single to center scoring Sean Smith. But Cal Poly registered the eventual winning run in the top of the seventh on a Brent Walker sacrifice fly.
Cal Poly's Olson picked up the victory while limiting UCLA to just six hits while striking out eight.
The teams conclude the three-game series Sunday at Jackie Robinson Stadium at 1 p.m.
