Feb. 18, 2006

Box Score

Stockton, Calif. - The UCLA baseball team earned its first road victory of the season with a 5-2 win over Pacific in game one of a doubleheader on Saturday afternoon at Stockton Ballpark. With the win, the Bruins improve to 3-5 while the Tigers drop to 6-2.

Senior outfielder Chris Jensen led the way at the plate going 3-for-5 with two runs scored, and junior Hector Ambriz went 2-for-3 with two runs scored. Ambriz (1-2) also earned the win by throwing 7.0 innings with six strikeouts, allowing one earned run on four hits.

The Tigers took an early 1-0 lead in the first inning on a sacrifice fly after three Bruin errors loaded the bases.

UCLA battled back in the top of the fourth inning after Jensen singled down the right field line followed by Ambriz drawing a hit by pitch. Senior Brett McMillan laid down a sacrifice bunt to the third base side to advance Jensen to third and Ambriz to second. With two outs, freshman Jermaine Curtis drilled a ground ball to Pacific shortstop Dale Hall who bobbled it to allow both runs to score, and the Bruins to take a 2-1 lead.

Pacific tied the game up at 2-2 in the top of the fifth inning on a two-out base hit by Ramon Glasgow through the left side to score Justin Baum from second base.

The Bruins regained the lead in the sixth inning after Ambriz led the inning off with a double to right center field. With two outs, Curtis drilled a line drive to left center to score Ambriz from second and give UCLA a 3-2 lead.

UCLA added another run in the top of the eighth to give the Bruins a 4-2 cushion. Jensen led the inning off with a single to center field, followed by a one-out single to left field by McMillan. A ball-four wild pitch to senior Sean Smith then scored Jensen from third.

The Bruins would go up 5-2 in the ninth inning after a walk to freshman Ryan Babineau started off the inning. Sophomore Mike Metzger sacrifice bunted Babineau to second before freshman Brandon Crawford singled to third base. Babineau then scored from second on a throwing by third baseman Justin Baum on the play.

Junior Brant Rustich earned his first save of the season throwing a perfect ninth inning with one strikeout.
