Long Beach, Calif. - Freshman left-hander Matt Drummond allowed just three hits in 4.0 scoreless innings in his first collegiate appearance as No. 15 UCLA fell to No. 20 Long Beach State, 14-1, in a non-conference matchup at Blair Field Tuesday evening. Five Long Beach State pitchers limited the Bruins to one run off four hits.

The Dirtbags used a three-run fifth, a three-run sixth and a eight-run eighth inning. Long Beach State took a 3-0 lead with a two-out rally in the bottom of the fifth inning. With two runners on base, senior A.J. Pinocchio blooped a single to left, bringing home Matt Cline. Robert Perry and A.J. Pinocchio scored on back-to-back wild pitches by freshman J.D. Haver. Freshman left-hander Justin Uribe was charged with all three runs in 0.2 innings pitched.

UCLA responded with one run off two hits in the top of the sixth. With one out, junior Alden Carrithers singled to left field and scored on junior Brady Dolan's triple to straight-away center field.

Long Beach State added three runs in the sixth to lead 6-1. With shortstop Danny Espinosa at third and pinch-runner Jason Tweedy at first, Brandon Godfrey sent a sacrifice fly to center, scoring Espinosa. The Dirtbags added their fifth run when left-handed pitcher Paul Schmidt's throw to first on a high-bouncer pulled Tim Stewart off the bag, allowing Tweedy to score from third. With the bases loaded, Steve Tinoco drew a walk, scoring Howell.

The Dirtbags tallied eight runs off six singles, two walks and two hit batters in the eighth inning to assume a 14-1 lead. Long Beach State right-hander Andre Lamontagne pitched 3.1 scoreless innings of relief and allowed just one hit while striking out a career-high six batters.
