Losing streak? What losing streak.
UCLA put their three-game losing streak to bed with a sweep of the USA Baseball-Irish Classic this weekend and now sit at 7-4 on the season. Next up, Loyola Marymount tonight at Jackie Robinson Stadium.
The Lions picked up a nice series win over Utah last weekend, which was huge after they lost six straight. That losing streak came at the hands of Oregon, Irvine and San Diego St. so at least they were losing to good teams, but at 4-7 they need to pick up some wins.
The Bruins will turn to Grant Dyer tonight, the freshman who was sensational in his first start, but got roughed up last week. He enters the game 1-1 with a 3.65 ERA and the Bruins will be counting on him to give them a good start because even in their weekend sweep, they didn't have a ton of offense. LMU will counter with Patrick McGrath, a right-handed senior who has a 2.93 ERA on the year.
As always, John Ramey will be on the call so you can listen along with him. You can also follow along on my UCLA baseball Twitter and on Gamecast. This is your open thread so fill it with updates, thoughts and whatever else you have as UCLA tries to make it four straight.
