EUGENE, Ore. - Right-hander Trevor Bauer (7-3) earned his team-leading seventh win, throwing his second complete game of the season, to lead the UCLA baseball team past Oregon, 6-2, on Saturday afternoon at PK Park. Bauer limited the Ducks to two runs and six hits in nine innings, notching four strikeouts and four walks.

Oregon left-hander Tyler Anderson (2-6) absorbed the loss, surrendering five runs and six hits in 4.2 innings. Anderson registered six strikeouts and issued two walks. Shortstop KC Serna was the only player for Oregon (14-30, 4-13 Pac-10) to log a multiple-hit game, going 2-for-2.

UCLA (21-22, 12-8 Pac-10) was led at the plate by center fielder Blair Dunlap, who went 2-for-4 with one run and a game-high two RBI. The Bruins also received one RBI from right fielder Chris Giovinazzo and catcher Gino Aielli. Third baseman Tyler Rahmatulla went 1-for-4 with a game-high two runs.

The Bruins claimed a 1-0 lead in the top of the first. After UCLA's first two batters were retired, designated hitter Casey Haerther doubled to the right-field wall. After first baseman Cody Decker drew a walk, Dunlap lined an 0-and-2 count offering to left field for a single, scoring Haerther from second base.

UCLA added its second run with two outs in the fourth inning. With one out, Dunlap reached safely bunting for a base-hit to the right side of the infield and stole second base. Aielli's two-out single to left field plated Dunlap from second, handing the Bruins a 2-0 cushion.

Oregon sliced the Bruins' advantage in half with one run in the bottom of the fourth. A single to right field by third baseman Danny Pulfer scored left fielder Curtis Raulinaitis, who led off the frame with a walk. A strong throw to second base by Giovinazzo on the attempted double allowed Eddie Murray to tag out Pulfer.

The Bruins scored three runs in the top of the fifth, pushing their margin to 5-1. Rahmatulla led off with an infield single and moved to third on a double down the right-field line by Murray. Giovinazzo was safe on a fielder's choice, plating Rahmatulla from third. After Decker drew his second walk of the game, Dunlap brought home Murray on a fielder's choice. With two outs, Dunlap attempted to steal second and stayed in a pickle long enough for Giovinazzo to score from third base before being tagged out at second base.

Oregon scored its second run in the top of the sixth. After drawing a leadoff walk, center fielder Caleb Tommasini moved to third base on a groundout and ensuing wild pitch before scoring on designated hitter Paul Eshelman's sacrifice fly to right field.

UCLA added its sixth and final run in the ninth inning. Rahmatulla reached safely at first on a fielding error and moved to third base on a throwing error by right-hander Scott McGough during a failed pickoff attempt. A wild pitch with one out allowed Rahmatulla to score.

UCLA and Oregon conclude their three-game Pac-10 series on Sunday. Game time at Oregon's PK Park is slated for 1 p.m. Sunday's game will be broadcast live in Comcast SportsNet Northwest (local cable station).
