LOS ANGELES - The UCLA baseball program hosted its annual Alumni Game Saturday afternoon at Jackie Robinson Stadium, where the Legends team defeated the Alumni team, 8-3. The Bruins welcomed back over 60 former players for the annual event.

The Legends team jumped to a 4-0 lead, scoring twice in the second and third innings. John Campanella initiated the scoring with a sacrifice fly, plating Mike Jaramillo from third base. The Alumni team responded with two runs in the fourth, cutting the Legends team's lead to 4-2.

Leading 4-3 in the fifth and final inning, the Legends team padded to its lead with four runs. The final frame featured a three-run inside-the-park home run by Eric Taylor, Jr., allowing the Legends team to assume a 7-3 cushion.

Just days away from reporting for spring training, several former Bruins playing in the minor leagues returned to Jackie Robinson Stadium. Among those minor leaguers in attendance included Kevin Brophy, Tyson Brummett, David Huff, David Johnson, Anthony Norman and Matt Thayer.

Following the five-inning alumni game, fans were able to get a preview of the 2008 Bruin baseball team, which played a six-inning intersquad contest. Junior left-hander Tim Murphy and freshman right-hander Dan Klein each pitched six innings for their respective teams - each pitcher allowed just two earned runs.

Senior second baseman Alden Carrithers led the Blue Team, hitting 2-for-3 with two singles, one run and one stolen base. Junior first baseman Cody Decker finished 1-for-2, blasting a two-run home run over the left-field fence in the bottom of the fourth inning.

Senior catcher Brent Dean and sophomore first baseman Casey Haerther each hit 1-for-3 at the plate with one double. Sophomore outfielder Dustin Quist finished 1-for-2 and made a highlight reel catch in right field, crashing into the fence in foul territory while catching a fly ball hit by junior Jermaine Curtis.

UCLA, ranked No. 1 in the nation by Baseball America, opens its season at home against Oklahoma on Friday, Feb. 22. Game time is 6 p.m. The Bruins and Sooners square off on Saturday at 3 p.m. and Sunday at 1 p.m.
