UCLA Baseball Sweeps Southern Cal, Share Pac-12 Crown


UCLA baseball has had a helluva few seasons, with last year being the first time our Bruins won the Pac-12 conference in over a decade.

Well today, UCLA won its second-straight Pac-12 conference, thanks to a sweep of the Southern Cal Tr0jans, beating $C with scores of 3-1, 6-5, and 7-6 on Memorial Day Weekend.

Our Bruins tied with Arizona for the conference crown and share it with the Wildcats. Not a bad haul, all things considered, especially with these teams finishing 42-14 on the season overall.

Of course, U$C scrapped and gave UCLA trouble in all three games, but they still lost, so that’s kind of all that matters.

I can’t give you well-thought-out baseball analysis without looking like a jackass. (Hey! Perfect opportunity: If you love UCLA baseball and want to write about it, hit us up on Twitter!)

Either way, this is apparently the first time that UCLA has won back-to-back Pac-12 titles, so it’s a helluva feat. John Savage has done wonders, we’re sure, and this team is poised for another solid postseason run, as they were back in 2010 when they came in second behind the real USC, the University of South Carolina.

Jackie Robinson Stadium has also been selected as one of 16 sites for NCAA regional tournaments to house the 64-team NCAA tournaments, in which seedings and teams will be announced on ESPNU on Monday morning at 9 a.m. I’m pretty excited to see where UCLA lands.

It’s good to get Pac-12 titles, and it’s even better when we get to step on the clowns down south to do so.
