Last night went well for UCLA. The offense couldn't quite get going, but the pitching held USC off despite not being at their best, which is what good teams have to do. That said, it's time to get the offense going and get easier innings from the pitchers instead of working out of trouble all game. That's the goal today as the Bruins try to keep their recent dominance of the Trojans going and win another series.
Nick Vander Tuig will start for UCLA and as is always the case when Vander Tuig starts, it's more about keeping the Bruins in the game than dominating. But that's what Vander Tuig does and it's been very effective, as evidenced by his eight wins on the year.
If you won't be out at the ballpark enjoying the sun and hopefully a Bruins win then you can tune in with John Ramey and Tim Wilhelm, who will have the call online. Of course, make sure to check my UCLA baseball twitter for game updates, notes, observations and everything else on the program. This is your open thread as the Bruins try to take the series so fire away.
