SEATTLE - Jeff Gelalich went 3-for-5 with one home run to lead the No. 11 UCLA baseball team past Washington, 11-3, and secure a Pac-12 road series victory at Husky Ballpark on Saturday afternoon.

The Bruins (34-13, 14-9 Pac-12) overcame an early 3-1 deficit by scoring four runs in the fourth inning before adding three in the fifth and three in the sixth to surge ahead, 11-3.

UCLA pounded out 15 hits en route to its 13th consecutive victory against the Huskies (26-20, 11-12), a winning streak that dates back to April 26, 2008.

Cody Regis went 2-for-3 with a career-high four runs, and Kevin Williams went 2-for-3 with three RBI.

Nick Vander Tuig (7-3) earned his third consecutive victory, limiting the Huskies to three runs (two earned) and 10 hits in 6.1 innings. Vander Tuig totaled three strikeouts and no walks in his 13th start of the season.

Tyler Davis (2-3) was tagged with the loss for Washington, surrendering four runs and five hits through the first 3.1 innings. Davis had two strikeouts and no walks, facing the minimum six batters in the first two innings before running into trouble in the third and fourth innings.

Gelalich opened the scoring in UCLA's four-run fourth with a solo home run. Brenton Allen had a run-scoring infield single to tie the game, 3-3, before Kevin Williams lined an RBI-single up the middle to put UCLA ahead, 4-3. Beau Amaral's base-hit to left field sent home Allen from third base for the Bruins' fifth run of the game.

Shane Zeile had the key hit in UCLA's three-run third inning, grounding a two-run pinch-hit single up the middle with one out to extend the Bruins' margin to 7-3. Amaral's sacrifice fly sent home the Bruins' third run of the inning.

UCLA scored three runs in the top of the sixth inning to secure an 11-3 lead. Pat Valaika grounded a run-scoring single up the middle, and Kevin Williams sent a two-run base-hit to center field.

Washington took a 1-0 lead in the bottom of the second inning before the Bruins tied the game, 1-1, with an RBI-single from Tyler Heineman.

The Huskies scored twice in the bottom of the third inning on Jacob Lamb's two-run line drive homer to right field.

Three UCLA relief pitchers combined to limit Washington to 2.2 hitless innings.
