CWS Highlights: UCLA 4 – North Carolina 1

06/21/2013

David Berg, Shane ZeileOMAHA, NE – Thanks to more timely hitting and dominant pitching, UCLA is two wins away from a national championship at the College World Series.

The Bruins got a key two-run double from Pat Valaika in the 7th to take a 4-0 lead and the pitching did the rest.

Grant Watson threw six innings of shutout ball, while three relievers allowed just a run on three hits the rest of the way.

UCLA will face Mississippi State in the best-of-three championship series beginning on Monday night.

Kevin Kugler and John Bishop called the action.

(Cody Regis puts UCLA up 1-0 with a base hit)

(Kevin Williams drives in the Bruins’ second run and it’s 2-0)

(Pat Valaika’s double doubles the UCLA lead to 4-0)

(The final call as UCLA is headed back to the championship series)
