UCLA Baseball: Bruins Beats TCU Are Going to Omaha For College World Series



UCLA baseball beat TCU 4-1 in another struggle behind incredible pitching by David Berg. The Bruins are now on to Omaha for their second College World Series appearance in three years, while our Bruins get a shot to win their first ever NCAA baseball title in school history in Omaha, Nebraska.

There’s no telling just how elated you should be, because NCAA baseball is no freaking joke, just like any other Division-I sport. This time around, a 64-team bracket is tough to get through, especially when you normally have to beat teams consistently rather than get lucky a few times. UCLA baseball has proven to be dominant as hell in this NCAA baseball tournament, smashing through the Super Regionals and sorta-kinda cruising through the Super Regionals, winning five straight in this postseason and nine straight dating back to the Bruins sweep of Southern Cal in the regular season and a win over UC Irvine, the squad that knocked us out of the LA Regionals in 2011.

We’re not done yet, so don’t get too excited. We have been closer before (2010, to be exact), but that doesn’t mean we don’t have a reason to be excited. It’s been awhile since UCLA’s been a national powerhouse, so we shouldn’t take this for granted.

But we’re title contenders, for damn sure. We’re not some tough team that’ll take you to the edge and force you to play up to your level. We’re the team to beat in college baseball, so let’s act like it.

But let’s have fun with this too, because Omaha, we’re back.
