Well I guess my lucky mojo with baseball game threads ended last night. Bruins had been 10-0 after I had started putting up these threads few weeks ago. Oh well. The silver lining here I suppose the mojo snapped before the tourney and perhaps we can start a new one all over again? Let's hope we can start a new streak by sending Justin Uribe (pictured above) and 3 other Bruin seniors off with a victory in their last regular season home game.
Besides those seniors, today is likely to Rob Rasmussen's final regular season start in a Bruin uniform (he will be headed off to the pros). The junior has had a fantastic season to date as his ERA is down to 3.00 and has compiled an impressive 8-2 record. Cougars will most likely throw Adam Conley at the Bruins (their ace closer) who week ago throttled Southern Cal for 2 runs in 8 innings.
The first pitch is scheduled for this afternoon at 1:00 pm PST ("Senior Day" festivities start at 12:40 pm PST). You can also follow along with GameTracker or get updates on Ryan's UCLA baseball twitter. So might as well thread this as our game thread with updates, thoughts, analysis and anything else.
