FULLERTON, Calif. — When there’s a trip to the College World Series on the line, sometime all it takes is one strong inning. UCLA scored three runs in the first inning and rode it all the way to Omaha as the Bruins defeated Cal State Fullerton 3-0 Saturday night at Goodwin Field to take the Fullerton (CA) Super Regional.

The three runs were plenty for veteran starter Nick Vander Tuig, who picked up his 12th win of the season after pitching out of jams for 6 1/3 innings. Continue reading

CBD Photo Gallery: Bruins Blow Lead, Get 5-3 Extra Inning Win

FULLERTON, Calif. – Austin Diemer charged in on Kevin Kramer’s line drive in the 10th inning Friday evening at Goodwin Field. Brian Carroll initially began to sprint from first base toward second but realized the ball was hanging up. He put on the brakes, stopping about 40 feet off first.

As the ball began descended toward the spot Diemer was about to be, Carroll began to return back to first. But he only took two steps before reversing course once more. Diemer tried to catch it straight on with his glove tilted forward rather than turning his glove sideways or attempting a basket catch.

Kramer’s sinking liner hit Dimer’s glove. Instead of sticking in his webbing when he tried to clasp down on the ball, the ball hit the palm of his glove and slipped off the fingertips as Diemer attempted to close the mitt. Carroll and Kramer were unable to take extra bases as the ball fell right behind Diemer, but the “hit,” as it was ruled by the official scorer, set up Eric Filia’s fourth single — a game-winning grounder through the right side.

CBD Photo Gallery: Watson Throws Gem; Bruins Advance to Super Regionals

Grant Watson had his best outing.

LOS ANGELES — Kris Bryant entered the postgame press conference with tears in his eyes. San Diego’s All-American slugger of legendary tales and heroic triumphs this season had been revealed to be a mortal man.

Like all players, Bryant saw his career come to a close. And like most, it ended in tears of sadness rather than glory.

Grant Watson stymied the probable top three draft pick and his Torero teammates as UCLA defeated San Diego 6-0 in Sunday night’s Los Angeles Regional championship game to advance to the Super Regionals for the fourth time in the last seven years. Continue reading

He delivered an all-Pac-12 worthy season, earning first team accolades along with OSU’s other weekend starters. Against A&M, he might have been better than ever. Continue reading
