14th-Ranked Texas A&M Evens the Series With 8-4 Win Over Bruins

March 6, 2004

Box Score

14th-Ranked Texas A&M (13-2) chipped away at an early Bruin lead and took a late advantage, which the Bruins (11-4) could not overcome as the Aggies claimed an 8-4 victory in front of 550 fans at Jackie Robinson Stadium.

UCLA posted two runs in the first as a costly error by shortstop Cliff Pennington allowed Sean Carpenter and Billy Susdorf to score. Carpenter had single to lead-off the inning while Susdorf walked a batter later.

Coby Marvoulis would cross home plate in the top of the second on a balk from Bruin starter Bryan Beck to give Texas A&M its first run of the game. After two frames, UCLA led 2-1.

A solo home run from Brett McMillan would put the Bruins up by two runs again in the third inning. The round tripper was his third of the season.

However, the lead would not last long as three Aggies scored in the fourth to give Texas A&M a 4-3 advantage. A single from John Infante, two hit batters and a balk would load the bases for the Aggies. One run would score on a ground out before Justin Ruggiano drove in two more with a double to left center.

Another Aggie run would score in the fifth before a two-run homer from Austin Boggs gave them a 7-3 lead.

A solo homer from Marvoulis gave Texas A&M its final run of the day in the eighth inning. The first baseman finished the day going 3-for-3 with four runs scored and an RBI.

Chris Denove started off the Bruin ninth with a double to left center. After two outs and a Carpenter walk, he would come to score on a single from McMillan. However, the Bruin rally would stop at one run after a lineout ended the game.

Beck suffered his first loss of the season, allowing four runs in 3.2 innings of action. Five Bruin pitchers combined to throw eight strikeouts with Daniel Miltenberger posting three in 2.1 innings.

The teams will face off in the final game of the series tomorrow at 1:00 p.m. at Jackie Robinson Stadium. Junior left-handed pitcher Wes Whisler will start for the Bruins.
