Offensive Surge Drives Bruins to 12-2 Win Over Oregon State

May 29, 2004

Box Score

UCLA (32-27, 13-10) scored nine runs in the final three frames as it posted a 12-2 victory over Oregon State (31-21, 10-13) in front of 792 fans in Corvallis, Oregon.

The Bruins took an early 1-0 lead, scoring in the top of the first inning. A single from Wes Whisler drove in Brett McMillan, who had singled earlier in the frame.

After the Beavers evened the score in bottom of the inning, the Bruins would reclaim the lead in the third. Billy Susdorf would deliver a two-out, two-RBI double to the left center gap to give UCLA a 3-1 advantage. Both Matt Thayer and Chris Denove scored on the hit.

UCLA padded its lead in the top of the seventh when McMillan hit a solo homer. Ryan McCarthy would follow him. He reached base on an error, stole second base, went to third on a throwing error by the pitcher and would score on a ground-out by Whisler. Heading into the bottom of the seventh, UCLA led 5-1.

Oregon State would load the bases with no outs in the bottom of the frame as a double and two walks started the inning. One run would come across to score on a fielder's choice before Bruin reliever Adam Simon struck-out Chris Campos and forced Aaron Mathews to fly out to end the threat.

UCLA proceeded to score three more runs in the eighth as a two-run homer from Denove highlighted the inning. Mike Svetlic would also score later in the inning on a fielder's choice.

In the ninth, Denove hit a lead-off double to start a four-run rally. After a single from Svetlic and a walk to Jarrad Page, the bases were loaded. Josh Roenicke drove in a run with a single to right field before Ryan McCarthy knocked in two more on a single through the left side. The final run came around to score on a Preston Griffin single up the middle.

David Johnson earned the win for UCLA, improving to 3-3 on the year. He allowed only one run on five hits in six innings.

Simon picked up his team-high fifth save of the season. He struck-out four batters over three scoreless innings in relief.

Denove finished the day going 4-for-4 with three runs scored and two RBI. McCarthy drove in a team-high three, while Susdorf and Whisler both knocked in two.

The Bruins and Beavers will face-off in the rubber match tomorrow at 1:00 p.m. at Goss Stadium. Left-hander Wes Whisler will start on the mound for the Bruins.
