Baseball: Off to Best Conference Start In 30 Years

Don't look now. Our boys are now off to the program's best conference start (5-0) since 1977. The winning streak reaches 7 games:

Catcher Ryan Babineau turned in a career performance, hitting 4-for-4 with two home runs, three runs scored and three RBI to lead the UCLA baseball team past Washington, 11-2, Friday evening at Jackie Robinson Stadium. The Bruins won their seventh-consecutive game and improved to 5-0 in Pac-10 play, the team's best conference start since 1977.

Sophomore left-hander Tim Murphy (2-1) struck out seven Huskies through 6.0 innings, limiting Washington to two runs off seven hits. Murphy allowed just one run in each of the second and third innings before holding the Huskies scoreless in his final three innings. Freshman Garett Claypool struck out two batters in 1.2 innings of relief, allowing UCLA to win its second Pac-10 series of the season.
Bruins now have a record of 15-14 with aformentioned 5-0 record in the conference.

Our boys will go for the sweep this afternoon. They will look to finish off the Huskies at Jackie Robinson today at 1 pm. If you want to follow the game online you can do so by using the game tracker going here.
