UCLA Baseball Regional v. UC Irvine Gameday Thread

OMAHA, NE - JUNE 29: (R-L) Pitchers Dan Klein #23, Erik Goeddel #33, Matt Grace #31, Matt Drummond #8 and Mitchell Beacom #35 of the UCLA Bruins warm up before game 2 of the men's 2010 NCAA College Baseball World Series against the South Carolina Gamecocks at Rosenblatt Stadium on June 29, 2010 in Omaha, Nebraska.

Earlier this afternoon, the Bruins eliminated the USF Dons, in large part due to an outstanding pitching performance from sensational freshman Adam Plutko.  Plutko, making his first college post-season start, did not disappoint, throwing a one-hit gem for 7.2 innings, with 6 strikeouts and just 2 walks.  After a little bit of a threat by the Dons late in the game, the Bruins closed out USF by a final score of 4-1.

With one win down today, the Bruins move on to play the UC Irvine Anteaters.  First pitch is expected at 6 p.m. PST and once again you can watch the game online or keep tabs via GameTracker or Ryan's UCLA baseball Twitter.  With the Bruins' regular starters (Cole, Bauer, and Plutko) expended, Coach John Savage is expected to hand the ball to freshman Zack Weiss.

Once again, the Bruins have to win to extend their season and give themselves a shot at returning to Omaha. 

This is your double-dose elimination NCAA regional baseball thread.
