The Bruin baseball and softball teams were in action Saturday, and both came up with meaningful W's behind two stellar pitching performances. The Bruin softball team is squaring off against UGA at Easton Staduim in the super regionals with a berth in the CWS at stake. The Bruins turned to their ace, Angelica Seldon, who baffled UGA hitters with a dominant performance to lead the Bruins to a 6-1 victory:
Selden allowed just one run and four hits with no walks in her team-leading 24th complete game of the season to improve to 27-3. The 11 strikeouts marked her 12th double-figure strikeout game of the year and the 66th of her career.
In case you missed it, the game was televised nationally on ESPN. Check out the details of the game here.
Meanwhile, the UCLA baseball team seems to be heating up at just the right time. Today, it was Charles Brewer's turn to lead the Bruins to a huge late season W:
The UCLA baseball team registered its second shutout at No. 15 California in as many days, posting a 7-0 victory Saturday afternoon at Evans Diamond. Bruin right-hander Charles Brewer (8-4) earned his team-leading eighth win, scattering just three hits while striking out four in 5.2 scoreless innings.
The Bruins, who have won each of their last five Pac-10 contests, took advantage of 10 walks and three hit-by-pitches issued by the host Golden Bears. Shortstop Brandon Crawford led UCLA's offensive charge, going 3-for-4 with one double, three RBI and two runs. Catcher Ryan Babineau was 2-for-4 with two RBI, and second baseman Alden Carrithers went 2-for-4 with two runs. Center fielder Blair Dunlap went 2-for-5, and designated hitter Cody Decker reached base safely in three of six plate appearances.
