UCLA Baseball Pulls Away Late, Upsets Oregon State in Pitchers Duel

For the second time this season, the Bruins have shut down a top-two team.

No. 23 UCLA baseball (34-19, 18-10 Pac-12) won its series opener against No. 2 Oregon State (40-12, 19-9) on Thursday night, crawling its way to a 4-1 victory up in Corvallis. The win, which keeps the Bruins in the race for the regular season Pac-12 title, comes over two months after they took down then-No. 1 Texas 5-1 in Houston.

In that contest, it was redshirt sophomore right-hander Kelly Austin who picked up the critical quality start, but on Thursday, it was sophomore right-hander Max Rajcic who opened the final series of the regular season with yet another gem.
