UCLA Baseball: Bruins Beat TCU 6-2, One Win Away From College World Series


Despite early struggles in every department imaginable, UCLA’s baseball team stayed the course after a monstrous sixth inning to beat the TCU Horned Frogs 6-2, putting our Bruins one win away from the College World Series in Omaha, Nebraska.

And it was a hell of a struggle, early on. UCLA pitcher Adam Plutko was flighty for most of his time on the mound, and for most of the contest, TCU held a 2-1 lead, with TCU pitcher Brandon Finnegan also being responsible for stifling UCLA.

Of course, UCLA figured it out, even if they figured it out in just one inning, scoring five runs in the sixth inning.

The game was scoreless after that, with TCU’s pitching staying on par with the rest of its game (stingy) and Adam Plutko heating up like hell before being subbed in for an also-hot David Berg, who closed the game out like a freaking boss.

UCLA is now one win away, over these same TCU Horned Frogs, from clinching a berth in the College World Series in Omaha, which would be the second time in three years that UCLA gets a shot at the national title on the biggest stage in college baesball.

This was a tough game, though, to be sure, and UCLA needs to be a little more consistent. Letting TCU just have one is going to be trouble in this three-game series, because it won’t take much for this team to get hot (or, at least, from what it looks like; I’m still not some sort of baseball expert).

Either way, we’re one win away, and that’s all that matters. GO BRUINS!!!
