April 15, 2006

Box Score

Tucson, Ariz. - UCLA scored seven runs in the first two innings to cruise to an 8-5 win over Arizona on Saturday afternoon at Kindall Field to win its second-consecutive Pac-10 series. The Bruins improve to 20-15 overall and 5-4 in the Pac-10 while the Wildcats drop to 15-18 and 3-6 in the Pac-10.

Senior Chris Jensen went 4-for-5 at the plate with two RBI, junior Tim Stewart went 3-for-4 with three RBI, and freshman Jermaine Curtis went 2-for-5 with a three-run triple. Freshman Ryan Babineau finished with a 2-for-3 performance with the bat and scored two times.

Junior Tyson Brummett (5-4) tossed 7.2 innings allowing five runs (four earned) on eight hits with three strikeouts and three walks to earn the win. Senior Josh Roenicke pitched the ninth to earn his third save of the season.

UCLA jumped on the Wildcats early in the first inning on a three-run triple by Curtis. Freshman Blair Dunlap and Stewart both walked, and Eric Taylor, Jr. was hit by a pitch to load the bases for the Bruins. With two outs, Curtis laced a shot to the left filed gap that rolled to the wall to score all three runners and give UCLA an early 3-0 lead.

The Bruins would score four runs in the second inning to take a 7-0 lead. Roenicke singled to right field to start off the inning, followed by a walk to Babineau to give UCLA two runners. Freshman Brandon Crawford then reached on a field error to load the bases with no outs. Jensen laced a one-out single up the middle to score Roenicke and Babineau to put UCLA up 5-0. Stewart followed with a two-run double down the left field line to score Crawford and Jensen and give the Bruins a 7-0 advantage.

Arizona got two on the board in the second inning to cut the UCLA lead to 7-2 as Bill Rhinehart tripled to right center to score Brad Glenn and scored as Crawford's throw to third went into the UCLA dugout.

UCLA scored a run in the sixth inning to go up 8-2. Babineau and Jensen both singled to put runners at first and second. With two outs, Stewart singled up the middle to score Babineau, but Jensen was caught in a rundown trying to advance to third to end the inning.

The Wildcats scored three runs with two outs in the eighth inning to cut the Bruin lead to 8-5. T.J. Steele laced a RBI single to left field and Jason Donald doubled down the left field line to score two.

UCLA will next play Long Beach State on Tuesday, April 18 at Jackie Robinson Stadium. Game time is set for 6 p.m.
