College Baseball 2012: UCLA Hangs On For 6-5 Win Over Maryland

After dropping their 2012 season opener at home on Friday, the UCLA Bruins were able to even up their record with a win over the Maryland Terrapins on Saturday afternoon.

The Bruins got on the board right away with two runs in the bottom of the first, later jumping out to a 5-1 lead by the bottom of the fourth. The Terps answered back with a four-run fifth inning, however, tying the game up briefly on a three-run homer by Maryland's Tim Kiene. UCLA was able to reclaim the lead when Tyler Heineman doubled to left field in the bottom of the fifth. Heineman advanced to third on a single by first baseman Trevor Brown and was able to score on a wild pitch. That run would be all the Bruins would need, as they hung on for their first win of the season.

WP - Nick Vander Tuig (1-0): 5 IP, 6 hits, 4 ER, 1 strikeout, 2 walks

LP -Charlie Haslup (0-1): 1.2 IP, 4 hits, 2 ER, 2 strikeouts

Sv - Scott Griggs (1): 1 IP, 1 strikeout
