LOS ANGELES - The UCLA baseball team was shutout by Cal State Northridge, 4-0, Tuesday evening at Jackie Robinson Stadium. The visiting Matadors scored four runs off seven hits, as three pitchers combined to limit UCLA to four hits. Earlier in the afternoon, both teams resumed a previously-suspended game from Feb. 26 (darkness at Cal State Northridge) midway through the eighth inning, and UCLA held on for a 22-2 win.

In the 4-0 setback, right-hander Garett Claypool (1-1) was tagged with the loss, allowing two runs (one earned) and four hits in 3.2 innings. Claypool recorded two strikeouts and issued four walks. Matador right-hander Billy Ott (1-2) earned the victory, allowing two hits in five scoreless innings.

Cal State Northridge catcher John Parham went 2-for-3 at the plate with one run. Each of the three hitters at the bottom of UCLA's lineup - Ryan Babineau, Blair Dunlap and Niko Gallego - recorded one single for the Bruins. First baseman Casey Haerther registered the Bruins' lone extra-base hit, a lead-off double in the ninth inning.

UCLA right-hander J.D. Haver limited Cal State Northridge to one run and two hits in a career-high 3.2 innings of relief. The Long Beach, Calif., resident totaled a career-high three strikeouts and issued one walk.

Cal State Northridge got on the board in the first inning on a run-scoring groundout by first baseman Richard Cates. Left fielder Billy Swanson came home from third base after reaching on a one-out bunt single.

In the top of the fourth, the Matadors assumed a 2-0 lead. After drawing two walks, Cal State Northridge added one run on a single through the left side by shortstop Justin DeMarco, who plated designated hitter Chris Hannick from second base.

Cal State Northridge claimed a 3-0 lead in the top of the fifth inning. Parham drew a leadoff walk, moved to second base on a wild pitch and scored on a double to right-center field by third baseman Ryan Pineda. The Matadors added one more run in the eighth inning when Hannick scored on a two-out pass ball.

UCLA returns to action Friday, April 18, against Stanford in a three-game series at Jackie Robinson Stadium. Friday's first pitch is slated for 6 p.m.
