Baseball Goes For History Game Thread

Team2_medium


The last time a UCLA baseball team won its first nine games of a season? Try never. The 2010 Bruins have matched the 8-0 start by the 1978 team and will look to set a new school record today at 1 pm PST when they host Nebraska in the series finale at Jackie Robinson Stadium.

The Bruins continued to draw praise from national writers after taking both games from Nebraska in yesterday's doubleheader. Game one went to the Bruins by a 13-1 score and game two was a close one that UCLA nabbed, 5-3. After eight games, UCLA has outscored their opponents by a combined score of 83-18 and their bullpen has yet to allow an earned run in 24 innings.

Today's series finale will see Rob Rasmussen (0-0, 5.40 ERA) get the start for the Bruins with Tom Lemke getting the nod for Nebraska (2-0, 0.84 ERA). Lemke will provide the UCLA offense, which is hitting .381 on the year, a major test, but after Nebraska had to use so many pitchers yesterday, if they can make him work and get into the bullpen, they'll be in good shape.

This is your baseball open thread as they go for a school record. You can follow along with the game on GameTracker (link included) or you can listen live from the official site with John Ramey and color men, Danny Rees and Nick Theodorou. You can also grab updates from my UCLA baseball twitter. If you following along via any of the three ways listed, please use this thread to keep everyone apprised of what's going on in the game while chiming in with any thoughts, questions and opinions you have. The thread is all yours.
