The Bruins got a strong effort from Sean Mullen en route to a 6-2 win over the Titans on Tuesday.
B6. Cal Poly takes the lead 4-3. Bruins entered the inning up 3-2 but Jared Karros imploded, allowing two runs, four hits, and a walk, only recording one out. He left with the bases loaded and one out, and was responsible for all three base runners. But the freshman Jake Brooks came on to induce a 4-6-3 double play to end the inning. That could be huge...
UCLA ties it up in T8. 4-4. Fielders choice scores a run. Two out with a runner on third as UCLA still threatens.
B8. Matt McLain E6 scores anunearned run.
Should have been the last out of the inning. Pretty routine ground ball. He just didn’t glove it. Very uncharacteristic and untimely.
T9. UCLA down to its last three outs...
Lead off walk to Perez but Karros can’t execute the sacrifice. Sigh. One out.
Ball game. Cal Poly takes it 5-4. UCLA couldn’t execute in critical moments on the mound (Karros in B6), in the field (McLain error scores game winner unearned), and at the plate (the other Karros cannot execute a sacrifice bunt with no outs in the T9). Winnable game gets away.
