Baseball Update - Weekend series against UCLA

USC has dropped 2 straight against UCLA this weekend at Dedeaux Field.

Friday April 13th - Official Box Score.

From the USC Website.

LOS ANGELES - Tyson Brummett threw a complete game Friday to lead the UCLA Bruins to the 5-2 victory over the host USC Trojans in Pac-10 Conference action at Dedeaux Field. Brummett gave up two runs on seven hits with three walks and four strikeouts.

The Bruins improved to 16-16 overall and 6-1 in Pac-10 play, one game behind leader Arizona. The Trojans fell to 19-16 on the season and 2-5 in conference.

Jermaine Curtis and Cody Decker had two RBI each for the Bruins.

Disappointing for sure but Brummett had a solid game.

Saturday April 14th - Offical Box Score

From the USC Website.

LOS ANGELES - Cody Decker's infield single in the ninth scored the go-ahead run while Brent Rustich struck out Grant Green with the tying run on third Saturday as the UCLA Bruins rallied to record the 7-6 victory over the USC Trojans. The Bruins came back from a 6-2 deficit after the sixth inning as Brandon Crawford tied the game with a two-strike, two-run single before scoring on Decker's hit.

UCLA (17-16, 7-1) remains one game back of first-place Arizona in the Pac-10 Conference standings. USC falls to 19-17 on the season and 2-6 in conference play.

Decker went 3-for-4 with a home run, his second in as many games, and two RBI while Crawford went 2-for-4 with three RBI. Brendan Lafferty threw three scoreless innings, allowing only one hit to go to 4-0 on the season for the Bruins.

This one was a heart breaker as SC had the lead and let it slip away. The bruins are a scrappy bunch. They were ranked in the Top 25 early in the season and struggled a bit but they have really found a groove in their Pac 10 play. Coach Savage has done a good job with this team.

Coach Kreuter on the other hand has struggled a bit this season but to me that's not surprising as it is his first year and SC has the second toughest SOS in all of D-1 baseball so I'm not surprised at the results. I am confident that he will get thing on track once he starts recruiting his players and settling into his groove. So there are no worries here.

Losing to your cross-town rivals is always disappointing but the bigger prize is in Omaha. Getting there in coach Kreuter's first season will go a long way to boost this teams confidence so lets see if SC can get back on track and find a groove of their own.

The final game of the series is Sunday at 1:30 at Dedeaux Field.
