LOS ANGELES - The UCLA baseball team dropped a 10-6 decision to San Diego State on Wednesday evening at Steele Field at Jackie Robinson Stadium. San Diego State rallied with six runs in the top of the ninth inning to overcome a 6-4 deficit.

San Diego State right-hander Kegan Sharp (1-1) recorded the victory in relief, allowing one run and two hits in two-thirds of an inning. UCLA left-hander Brendan Lafferty (0-2) was tagged with the loss, surrendering three runs and two hits in an inning of relief.

UCLA (3-11) led nearly the entire contest, claiming a 5-1 lead through five innings before carrying a 6-4 advantage into the ninth inning. San Diego State (8-6) rallied with one run in the seventh, two in the eighth and sixth in the ninth to earn the victory.

The Aztecs opened the ninth inning with a walk, followed by back-to-back singles. A bases-loaded wild pitch brought home the first run of the frame and a double by first baseman Brandon Meredith plated the game-tying and game-winning runs. San Diego State added three more runs with a single, double and RBI-groundout.

Bruin right-hander Trevor Bauer did not record a decision in his first collegiate start, limiting the Aztecs to one run and two hits through six innings. Bauer recorded four strikeouts and issued three walks.

First baseman Casey Haerther and left fielder Justin Uribe each totaled two hits and two RBI. Second baseman Eddie Murray led UCLA with two runs, and designated hitter Cody Decker belted his team-leading third home run, a solo homer to left field in the bottom of the eighth inning.

UCLA got on the board first, scoring one run in the first inning before San Diego State tied the contest, 1-1, in the top of the second. The Bruins added two runs in the third to assume a 3-1 cushion. UCLA expanded its lead to 5-1 with one run in each of the fourth and fifth innings.

UCLA returns to action at East Carolina (10-2) on Friday, March 13. Game time at Clark-LeClair Stadium in Greenville, N.C. is slated for 2 p.m. (PT). East Carolina University will provide an online video broadcast of each game, available at ecupirates.com.
