UCLA vs. Cal Poly Saturday Baseball Game Thread: Bruins Looking for Series Win

USA TODAY Sports

The Bruins took the opening game last night against Cal Poly in this weekend series and will look to clinch the series this afternoon in the second of three games.

Last night's series opener went much better for the #12-ranked Bruins than their opening game in the first weekend series against Portland, with the Bruins dropping Cal Poly last night, 5-2.  Behind an outstanding pitching effort by James Kaprielian (7.0 IP, 1 ER, 9 K, 1 BB), who picked up his first victory on the year, and a pair of triples by 2B Luke Persico (4-4, 1 R, 1 RBI), the Bruins took the early advantage with Friday night's win.

This afternoon, Coach Savage will send out lefty Grant Watson (1-0, 0.00 ERA, 8 K, 1 BB in 2014; 9-3, 3.01 ERA, 55 K, 16 BB in 2013) to take on the Mustangs, who look to continue his strong run that stretches back to last year's post-season.  Opposing Watson on the hill will be Cal Poly's Slater Lee, a right-handed freshman (1-0, 1.42 ERA), which shouldn't scare the Bruins, given their stronger (so far) offensive showing against right-handed dealers.

The game gets underway this afternoon at 2 p.m. PST and as usual, you can listen in with John Ramey and Tim Wilhelm, or if you prefer you can track the game on Ryan's outstanding UCLA baseball Twitter and on the official site's Gamecast.  This is your Saturday baseball open thread, so fire away with your updates, thoughts, and whatever else you can think of as the Bruins look to take a second game on the trot from the Cal Poly Mustangs.
