SANTA BARBARA — The UC Irvine baseball team, ranked No. 1, gave up a season-high six home runs, losing, 8-2, to UC Santa Barbara in a Big West Conference game Saturday.

IRVINE — The last man inserted into the UC Irvine baseball lineup came up big Friday night against Big West Conference visitor UC Riverside. But so did the first name Anteaters’ Coach Mike Gillespie scribbled onto the lineup card. The latter, senior starting pitcher Christian Bergman, worked eight crafty innings in a 5-0 triumph at Anteater Ballpark to win his second straight Friday night start. The last name on the card, however, junior Ryan Fisher, also made Gillespie and his staff appear prescient, as the left fielder went two for two with two doubles and two runs batted in, including a squeeze bunt that pushed across the game’s first run. That initial run proved to be all Bergman and the No. 25-ranked Anteaters (33-17, 13-6 in conference)

While nine of the top 12 hitters from a year ago return, much of the discussion about the 2011 UC Irvine baseball team involves those who are no longer in the clubhouse. Among the veteran standouts drafted last June were five core seniors who all went to the College World Series in 2007, a Super Regional in 2008, and were on the first UCI team to win a Big West Conference title, play host to a regional and earn the No.1 ranking in 2009. The group consisting of pitchers Danny Bibona, Eric Pettis and Christian Bergman, first baseman Jeff Cusick and catcher Francis Larson, then capped the 2010 season with the program's fifth straight trip to the NCAA Regionals.

Members of the UC Irvine baseball program open the 2010 season tonight with a target on their back, a chip on their shoulder and a number on their chest. The target refers to being the reigning Big West Conference champions after claiming the program’s first crown last season with a 22-2 Big West record. There is also the matter of having been ranked No. 1 the final six weeks of the regular season and earning the school’s first home NCAA Regional. The chip on their shoulder relates to the way 2009 ended, as Virginia eliminated the Anteaters to advance from the Irvine Regional and finalize UCI’s record at 45-15.
