BERKELEY - No. 10-ranked UCLA broke open a close game by scoring seven runs in the last two innings to defeat No. 25 California, 12-4, Saturday (May 22) at Evans Diamond. The Golden Bears (27-21, 11-12) had taken a 4-3 lead in the bottom of the fifth inning on junior second baseman Austin Booker's two-run single to center field and sophomore right-hander Dixon Anderson did not give up a hit to the Bruins (40-11, 15-8) through the first four innings. UCLA had won Friday's contest, 8-7.

Cal had scored the first runs of the game in the second inning on sophomore left fielder Danny Oh's RBI single off UCLA starter Trevor Bauer (9-3, 7.0 innings, eight hits, four runs, two earned runs, one walk, seven strikeouts) and Oh later scored on Bruin shortstop Niko Gallego's error on a ball hit by sophomore shortstop Marcus Semien.

UCLA came back with three runs in the top of the fifth inning off Anderson (4-3, 7.1 innings, eight hits, five earned runs, five walks, four strikeouts), who gave up his first hit of the game in the fifth when Brett Krill led-off with a single. Anderson later had a throwing error to third base on a bunt play and also gave up back to back RBI ground outs.
