BASEBALL UC Irvine 11, Houston 5 HOUSTON — Sophomore designated hitter Tony Asaro hit a three-run home run in the third inning Sunday to give the Anteaters the lead for good and a sweep of the three-game nonconference series. It was the first home run at UCI for Asaro, a Pepperdine transfer. There were multiple offensive heroes for the winners (6-2-1), who rallied in all three games against the Cougars. Sophomore shortstop Ben Orloff went three for four with three RBIs, while senior center fielder Matt Morris was three for four with two RBIs.

STOCKTON ? The UC Irvine baseball team scored seven runs in the final two innings to turn a 6-5 deficit into a 12-7 Big West Conference victory over host Pacific in the first of a three-game weekend series Friday at Klein Family Field. Matt Morris' pinch-hit, three-run double was the big blow in the Anteaters' three-run eighth, which put the visitors on top, 8-6. UCI then capitalized on four ninth-inning errors by the Tigers to score four runs and pull away. The win ended a two-game losing streak for the No. 13-ranked Anteaters (32-14-1, 8-5 in conference)

Bryan Petersen was the first UC Irvine player to get plucked in the Major League Baseball draft Thursday, prompting the Florida Marlins' pick to send the Daily Pilot an e-mail the following day. "Hopefully you'll have a couple of more to write [about]," wrote Petersen, who knew by the time he sent the message on Friday night that seven other Anteaters were drafted in the second day of the draft. In all eight Anteaters were selected, making it the highest number in the baseball program's history.

IRVINE ? A solid outing from Scott Gorgen went all for naught as UC Irvine coughed up a four-run lead and lost, 8-7, to UC Santa Barbara in a Big West Conference baseball game Saturday night. Pinch-hitter A.J. Knox singled in the game-winning run off Glenn Swanson with two outs in the top of the ninth inning. The Anteaters then stranded two runners in the bottom of the inning to bring their four-game winning streak to an end. Gorgen pitched eight innings for UCI (23-17, 4-7 in conference)

IRVINE — So far this season, the pen is mightier than the rotation for the UC Irvine baseball team. That trend held true Saturday night, even when the rotation borrowed from the bullpen to give former reliever Wes Etheridge his first start. Etheridge was solid through five innings and left with a 3-2 lead. But when visiting Utah rallied to tie the score in the seventh off Cole Hathcock, the bullpen was, once again, willing to prove it had the starters' back. Anteaters relievers Dylan Axelrod, Tom Calahan and Blair Erickson combined for three shutout innings to help the hosts rally for a 5-3 nonconference victory at Anteater Ballpark.

FULLERTON — The journey toward a historic 12-6 victory that some believe put the UC Irvine baseball team in the driver's seat toward a Big West Conference title, began Saturday morning with the Anteaters assembled in about 15 rows of passenger seats. "When we got here [Friday, after a dramatic 2-1 series-opening win Thursday] you could kind of see that my guys were a little timid," UCI Coach Dave Serrano said. "It was almost like, 'God, are we supposed to be [beating the No. 12-ranked Titans]

The case could have been made that Saturday's Big West Conference series finale at Cal State Fullerton was the biggest game in the Division I history of UC Irvine baseball. This proposition, however, was hard to reconcile with a first-time freshman starter on the mound for the Anteaters who boasted an 0-2 record and a 9.45 ERA. Threatening additional credibility was the image of first-base coach Sergio Brown, who instead of the fitted navy blue team cap, wore what appeared from the press box to be a trucker cap, complete with white mesh material surrounding a royal blue crown and bill.

IRVINE — The UC Irvine baseball team that only eight days earlier had earned the right to be considered by many the team to beat in the Big West Conference, was knocked into sixth place Sunday by visiting Cal Poly San Luis Obispo. The conference-leading Mustangs (20-18, 7-2 in conference) flexed their muscles at bat and on the mound to claim a 12-0 win before 885 at Anteater Ballpark. With the loss, UCI, which had won eight consecutive series and had not lost a series at home this season, falls to 25-10-1, 5-4. The Anteaters, ranked No. 17 by Baseball America, also figure to fall in the national polls.

IRVINE — If only his UC Irvine baseball team played like UCLA's Tuesday. That's how Coach Dave Serrano saw it. Look at the Bruins he said, and how they battled, fighting off pitches to stay alive down in the count in the nonconference game. The 12th-ranked Anteaters struggled moving runners around after going up by two runs in the first inning against the No. 22 Bruins. Even when they tried to lay down sacrifice bunts, a Bruin first baseman dove head first catching the ball in midair in foul territory, stalling any threat.

RIVERSIDE — When you win 16 games in the Big West Conference, there's much more to your game than good fortune. But win No. 16 that clinched the first Big West Conference championship in the tradition-rich history of the UC Riverside baseball program Saturday night began to crystallize around a bunt that appeared to be lost in the sun. With a twilight sun gleaming toward the right side of the diamond in the third inning at the...
