Watson allowed one run on seven hits while striking out five Trojans (12-4). The  run Watson gave up came in the fourth inning when Garrett Stubbs singled home James Roberts, giving USC a 1-0 lead.

UCLA got a pair of runs in the fifth frame. Brown doubled home Jeff Gelalich and later scored on an error by Roberts. The following inning, Kevin Williams chased USC starter Brandon Garcia with a solo home run to right-centerfield to lead off, but reliever Bobby Wheatley couldn’t stymie the Bruins’ offense as Brown singled home another run to make it 4-1.

Brown began the rally in the eighth inning with his second double of the night. He came around to score on shortstop Pat Valaika’s two-run single to give UCLA a 9-1 lead before closer Scott Griggs tried to make things interesting in the final frame.

Griggs hit Roberts to lead off the inning and after a strikeout, walked three consecutive batters to score a run. The junior finally shut things down with a strikeout and fly out.

Brown finished with a pair of runs and a pair of RBI to go along with his three hits. Beau Amaral was the only other Bruin to record multiple hits. Roberts finished 3-for-3 with two runs. Alex Sherrod was the only other Trojan with a multi-hit performance.
