Last night’s game was suspended due to fog in the top of the second inning with one out and Nick Quintana on third after he tripled to right-center. Cesar Salazar will be batting when the game resumes. In the bottom of the first, Kyle Cuellar doubled down the right field line with two out, but Sean Bouchard grounded into a force play to end the inning.
At the time of publication, it’s unknown whether Griffin Canning will be able to pitch today for UCLA or not. Canning was on the hill when the game was suspended. Canning had thrown 30 pitches in an inning and one-third.
It’s also not known if JC Cloney will be able to pitch for Arizona. But the Wildcats have the advantage of knowing that Cloney only threw 15 pitches in the game last night.
The suspension could cause problems for UCLA as the Bruins were already unsure coming into the series if Jake Bird was going to be able to pitch today’s regularly-scheduled game and having to play two today could cause problems for UCLA’s pitching staff. Bird has missed his last two starts due to a shoulder injury.

Neither of today’s games will be televised. But, as always, John Ramey and Tim Wilhelm will have the audio call for both games. Live stats will be available for both game 1 and game 2.
