The Bruins got their weekend road trip to Berkeley started right, with a 7-2 win over the Golden Bears in Friday's opener. Today's game will give UCLA an opportunity to boost their regular season resume, with a road series win up for the taking. But more importantly, if the Bruins can pick up a series sweep over Cal, it will help UCLA close to game on conference-leader Oregon heading into the final week of the season and give the Bruins a good shot at repeating as Pac-12 champs.

In any event, turning to today's game, Nick Vander Tuig (7-3) will take the hill for the Bruins, facing off against Cal's Justin Jones (4-7).

The game gets started at 1 p.m. PST and you can listen to it live here, or follow it on UCLA's official GameTracker here, or follow Ryan's UCLA baseball Twitter feed here.
