The Bruins managed to stave off elimination by beating Fresno State, in large part due to the excellent pitching of national pitcher of the year Trevor Bauer. UCLA now faces USF again, after initially losing to the Dons 3-0 in the opening game, in another elimination game. Freshman stalwart Adam Plutko takes the hill for the Bruins in another must-win game. Win and the season stays alive, at least for another few hours. Lose and it ends in Los Angeles rather than Omaha for this year's Bruins squad.
Game is underway (start time at 2 p.m. PST) and you can watch it online or follow on GameTracker. Also, Ryan's UCLA baseball Twitter will have his updates, observations, and notes as the game unfolds.
If the Bruins win, they'll face UC Irvine tonight at JRS at 6 p.m. PST.
