UCLA Baseball @ New Mexico Lobos Open Thread

Yes, the game is still being played at Jackie Robinson Stadium, but tonight the Bruins will be the road team. Following Adam Plutko's gem in the Bruins' victory over Creighton last night, they will likely need a similar pitching performance against the offensively powerful New Mexico Lobos:

The Lobos have built their program on powerful offenses and this year is no different. Their .333 batting average is the fourth best in the country, led by DJ Peterson's mind-boggling .418 batting average, 16 home run, 76 RBI line. Mitchell Garver has been almost as good, hitting .391 with 10 home runs and four more Lobos are hitting .330 or better. Even taking into account the very pitcher friendly ballpark that New Mexico plays in, that is one impressive offense.

In addition, the Lobos' victory over San Diego yesterday marked their 10th straight victory, so this is a team that should be feeling good about its chances of keeping their momentum going.

The game is set for 7 PM. Audio here and Video here.
