UCLA Vs. Florida State, 2012 CWS Scores: Bruins Eliminated In 4-1 Loss To Seminoles

The UCLA Bruins were eliminated from the 2012 College World Series on Tuesday night, losing to the Florida State Seminoles 4-1. The no. 1 seed Bruins won their opening match against Stony Brook, but lost the next game to Arizona and needed to win three straight games in order to reach the championship round.

Trouble started for UCLA early, with starting pitcher Zack Weiss giving up a single and two walks within the first four batters of the game. With the bases loaded and only one out, Weiss walked the next man on four straight pitches, giving Florida State a 1-0 lead. Facing elimination UCLA had no room for error, and Weiss was pulled for Grant Watson. Watson walked in another run, but then managed to get a double play to end the inning.

Watson would last until the fourth, when he was pulled after giving up three straight singles to load the bases. Ryan Deeter followed Watson on the mound for the Bruins, and gave up a bunt single to first baseman Jayce Boyd. The single scored one run, and another run came home with Bruins third baseman Kevin Kramer's off target throw to first. Deeter walked the next batter, but the Bruins were able to prevent the Seminoles from capitalizing.

UCLA got on the board in the sixth, with second baseman Kevin Williams drawing a walk to start things off. Center fielder Beau Amarai moved him to third with a double, and an RBI single by left fielder Cody Keefer put the Bruins on the board. Three straight strikeouts prevented UCLA from any further offense in the sixth, and the run proved to be their only offense of the game.

David Berg and Scott Griggs also pitched for the Bruins, throwing 2.1 and .2 innings respectively. Combined, the Bruins pitchers walked eight batters and struck out only three. UCLA now goes home, while Florida State will move on to face Arizona. A full bracket for the 2012 College World Series can be found at the NCAA website.
