I had previously posted the projected tournament field from Baseball America's Aaron Fitt, where he had us outside looking in prior to the final homestand against Wazzu. Today, Fitt had us in his "Three Strikes" feature under "Stock Up" in relation to the NCAA tourney:
UCLA put itself back into the regional hunt by winning a midweek game against UC Irvine and then sweeping Washington State. All of a sudden the Bruins are tied for third place in the Pac-10 with California, heading into next weekend’s Cal-UCLA showdown in Berkeley. First the Bruins have a midweek game at Cal State Fullerton. A 2-2 finish in those last four games should get UCLA into the NCAA tournament.
Like Nestor posted earlier, this final weekend is big and going 4-0 this past week should be a huge confidence boost; hopefully we can get it done and finish the season off right (and on the road!).
