RIVERSIDE - The UC Irvine baseball team gave new meaning to the term seventh-inning stretch Friday. And, like a rubber band pulled to its limit, the Anteaters' bullpen snapped to help host UC Riverside claim a 7-5 Big West Conference triumph at the Riverside Sports Complex. The win drops UCI, ranked No. 21 by the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Assn., to 16-7, 0-2 in conference. It's UCI's worst start in conference play since 2006, when it lost its first four and six of its first seven against Big West competition.
