Baseball Downed Again by Stanford
Feb. 22, 1998
On Sunday at Jackie Robinson Stadium, UCLA committed costly errors in the seventh and eighth innings which led to six unearned runs and the Cardinal defeated the Bruins, 13-9. Stanford scored 54 runs in the three-game series, the most it has ever scored in a three-game Six-Pac series.
The score was tied at six in the seventh inning. Freshman righthander Jon Brandt did an outstanding job for the Bruins, striking out seven in four innings, but he was the tough-luck loser because of a costly error. Brandt did not allow an earned run and dominated the Cardinal for four innings.
UCLA rallied in the ninth inning. The Bruins scored three runs and sent the tying run to the plate but freshman Chase Utley flied out to center to end the game.
Eric Valent his his fifth home run of the season for UCLA and extended his hitting streak to eight.
