The offense is still a question mark and the Bruins are still trying to sort out some other things, yet here they are, tied for the Pac-12 lead at 5-1 after two weekends. Not bad for a work in progress.
This weekend will be UCLA's biggest Pac-12 test to date as they head to Tempe for three games against Arizona St. After a strong non-conference run, the Sun Devils have struggled in conference, losing series to Washington St. and Oregon St., but they still have talent, especially in ace Trevor Williams.
Williams is 3-2 with a 2.36 ERA this season and will be a first round pick in June's draft so the Bruins have their work cut out for them tonight. UCLA will need a strong effort from Adam Plutko, who hasn't been at his best this season, going just 2-1 with a 3.47 ERA.
