Bruins Upended by No. 21 Arizona State

April 23, 2005

Box Score

TEMPE, Ariz. - Under raining skies and estimated 35-40 mile per hour winds, Arizona State upended UCLA, 16-2 Saturday night at Packard Stadium in game two of this weekend's three-game Pac-10 series.

UCLA (8-27, 0-8 Pac-10) put one run aboard early as first baseman Brett McMillan drove home Josh Roenicke with an RBI single to center in the top of the first. Chris Jensen was later thrown out at home on an attempted safety squeeze bunt.

ASU (27-15, 8-3 Pac-10) racked up five singles in the bottom of the first and, with the help of two UCLA errors, scored four runs to take an early three run lead.

Right-fielder Chris Jensen brought UCLA to within two with his third home run of the season on t the top of third. The round-tripper was the second for Jensen in as many nights and the third in the last five games.

The Sun Devils tacked on two more run in the bottom of the fifth after a Joey Hooft sacrifice fly and a J.J. Sferra RBI single to take a 6-2 lead. The first run of the inning was unearned as the runner, Tuffy Goeswisch only advanced to third after a throwing error by catcher Chris Denove on a stolen base.

Arizona State added another unearned run in the sixth when Goeswisch's RBI sacrifice fly brought around lead off hitter Colin Curtis from third. Curtis had reached on a walk, advanced on Travis Buck's single and moved to third on a botched pickoff attempt by Bruin reliever Brant Rustich. A successful Sferra squeeze bunt in the seventh accounted for the eighth ASU run. Later in the inning, Autstin Stockfisch's run-scoring single provided another ASU score.

The Sun Devils pushed across seven more runs in the eighth to cap the victory.

Bryan Beck (0-7) suffered the defeat for UCLA.

Jason Urquidez (6-3) earned the win and Brett Bordes picked up his second save for ASU with three scoreless innings of relief to end the game.

Center fielder Josh Roenicke contributed three hits in the losing effort. Jensen now has three home runs in just eight games.

UCLA committed a season high seven errors in the contest. The error total is the most since the Bruins did it in 2001 and 1995.
