Undefeated UCLA will take on Nebraska today in a doubleheader at Jackie Robinson Stadium as the two teams do their best to get games in before the rains kicks in. The Bruins sit at a perfect 6-0, while the Cornhuskers are under .500 at 3-4, but winners of three of their last four. You can read my entire series preview here.
The Bruins will start sophomore right-hander Gerrit Cole (2-0, 3.27 ERA) in game one of the double dip and the Cornhuskers will counter with a sophomore right-hander of their own, Sean Yost (1-0, 4.66 ERA). First pitch is at 2 pm PST.
In game two of the doubleheader, scheduled to start at 6 pm PST, UCLA will start another sophomore right-hander in Trevor Bauer (1-0, 3.38 ERA). Nebraska will go with a little more experience in junior right-hander Michael Mariot (0-1, 7.20 ERA).
