UCI, which will likely miss the postseason for the first time in seven seasons, scored in five innings to overcome a 2-0 first-inning deficit and snap a three-game losing streak. Senior shortstop D.J. Crumlich was three for four with four runs scored. He also ranged far into foul territory to make a sliding catch of a foul pop near the fence beyond the dugout to produce the hosts' best defensive play.
Freshman third baseman Taylor Sparks was two for three with two runs and junior left fielder Jeff Stephens was two for five with an RBI for the winners.
Freshman Connor Spencer was one for two with two RBIs and Fox had a single and an RBI to contribute to UCI's 13-hit attack.
