The UCLA Bruins (13-10) dropped the second game of the three-game non-conference series at USC (11-13), 5-0 on Saturday afternoon in front of 1,086 fans at Dedeaux Field.
The contest was a classic pitcher's duel through the first five innings, as both teams were kept off the scoreboard. Despite not allowing an earned run and scattering four hits in 5.1 innings of work, junior Bryan Beck fell to 2-2 on the season.
USC posted its first run of the game in the bottom of the sixth inning when Joey Metropoulos reached base on an error to leadoff the frame. He would later score on a single from Jon Brewster.
The Bruins continued to keep the Trojans off the board until the eighth when USC put up four runs, highlighted by a Jeff Clement home run.
UCLA did out hit the Trojans, posting seven hits in the game. Anthony Norman led the way with two singles.
The final game of the three-game series will start tomorrow at 1:00 p.m. at Dedeaux Field when junior left-hander Wes Whisler takes the mound for UCLA. The game can be heard on www.UCLABruins.com
