Bruins Defeat California, 10-2

April 4, 2003

Final Stats

Reliever Doug Silva did not allow a run in the final 5.1 innings, while striking out a career-high eight batters to lead UCLA (17-16) to a 10-2 Pac-10 victory over California (18-14).

Silva (4-0) took over for starter Mike Kunes in the fourth inning after he had allowed the Golden Bears' only runs on a two-run homer. The right-hander from Danville retired the next three batters to get out of the inning. He only gave up five hits in the outing to earn his fourth win of the season.

The Bruins had already built a lead by the time Chris Grossman hit his homer in the fourth. Two Bruin runs scored in the first when singles from Brett McMillan, Wes Whisler and Matt Thayer started the rally. UCLA tacked on another run in the third when McMillan hit his second home run of the season.

The Bruin arsenal would rally behind Silva as doubles from Thayer and Billy Susdorf drove in three more runs in the fifth.

Whisler would add his fourth home run of the year in the seventh when his two-run homer drove in McMillan.

UCLA's final runs would cross home plate in the eighth inning. Another double for Thayer drove in two Bruins to seal their third conference win.

Thayer also posted a new career-high by driving in five runs and tied a previous best with three hits. McMillan also tied a career-high with his three hits while scoring four times. Whisler also crossed home plate four times in the contest.

The Pac-10 series will continue tomorrow when Whisler (3-4) takes the mound for UCLA. First pitch is set for 1:00 p.m.
