Baseball Falls To Utah In Eleven Innings 7-4

Feb. 18, 2005

Box Score

LOS ANGELES, Calif. - UCLA committed two errors and surrendered four hits in the top of the eleventh inning as the Bruins dropped game one of this weekend's three-game series to Utah 7-4 at Jackie Robinson Stadium Friday night. The Bruins at one point led 4-3 with two outs in the top of the ninth inning but the Utes rallied for four unanswered runs in the game's final three innings en route to their first victory of the season.

Utah's Ryan Khoury delivered the game-winning sacrifice fly off of reliever Daniel Miltenberger with nobody out in the top of the eleventh and Tyler Kmetco and Trevor Eastman would later chime in with RBI base hits of their own to give the Utes the 7-4 lead. The Bruins put two runners aboard in their half of the eleventh but Jarrad Page flew out to deep center field with two outs to end the game.

Utah reliever Brian Lane (1-1) picked up the victory, tossing 2.0 innings of nearly perfect relief. Lane allowed one hit and struck out one batter while holding UCLA scoreless through the tenth and eleventh innings.

Bruin closer Adam Simon (1-1) suffered the defeat after allowing the eventual winning run to reach base in the final frame.

Utah opened up the scoring in the first inning when Doug Beck knocked home Khoury with an infield single to third base. Khoury had reached earlier in the inning on a one-out single up the middle and advanced to third on starting pitcher Hector Ambriz' failed pick off attempt.

Ambriz settled down after that, allowing just two more runs in the fourth. Ambriz would exit with one out and a runner on first in the ninth with the Bruins ahead 4-3. Later in the ninth, with Simon on the mound, Eric Taylor's throwing error with two out allowed the tying run to score and sent the game into extra innings.

Offensively for UCLA, Taylor, catcher Chris Denove, right fielder Mike Metzger and second baseman Sean Smith each contributed an RBI to the effort. Taylor finished the night 3-for-5.

Ambriz tossed 8.1 innings, allowing ten hits and two earned runs in the no-decision.
