Bruins Deck Bears ... Again

New, 10 comments

Bruins are starting to look unstoppable in the Pac-10. Well at least when they are playing at home. They wrapped up another home series yesterday afternoon by beating up Cal. Lefty Tim Murphy remained unbeaten in the Pac-10 running his recrod to 4-0 (4-2 overall) while it was Decker leading the charge on offense with 2 dingers. Here is the recap:

Cody Decker hit two home runs and left-hander Tim Murphy recorded nine strikeouts through seven innings to lead the No. 22 UCLA baseball team past California, 7-2, in a Pac-10 contest Saturday afternoon at Jackie Robinson Stadium. The victory handed UCLA a series victory against the visiting Golden Bears (23-24, 7-10 Pac-10).

The Bruins (27-18, 12-2 Pac-10) have now won 19 of their last 23 games, including 12 of the past 14 contests. UCLA has captured each of its last seven home Pac-10 series.

Decker's two-home-run game marked UCLA's second such performance in as many days. Gabe Cohen belted two round-trippers in Friday evening's 13-6 win over the visiting Golden Bears. Decker previously hit two home runs in a 16-11 victory at Stanford on March 31, 2007. Decker finished 2-for-2 with two home runs, two runs, five RBI, one walk and one hit-by-pitch.

Left-hander Tim Murphy (4-2) improved to 4-0 in Pac-10 play, striking out nine in seven innings. The sophomore from Vista, Calif., allowed just one run off four hits in his eighth career start.

California right-hander Alex Rollin (7-4) was tagged with the loss, allowing five runs off three hits through five innings. Rollin issued six walks and recorded four strikeouts.
Bruins will try to break out the broomstick this afteroon. Lefty freshman Gavin Brooks will be on the mound for us. First pitch is scheduled for 1 pm PST.

GO BRUINS.
