Baseball Tops USC; Wins Series Against Gauchos: Saturday

Sadly, UCI lost a heartbreaker Saturday night. After loading the bases in the top of the ninth inning, the Anteaters were unable to drive in the tying run; they fell to Santa Barbara 6-5.
It was a tough loss to see. The offense provided three runs early on RBI hits from Sophomore Ben Orloff and Cody Cipriano and a UCSB error. However, the Gauchos quickly cut into the lead with two runs in the bottom of the frame.
After tacking on three more runs in the fifth inning, the Gauchos tallied on what would be the game-winning run when center fielder Chris Fox stole home in the sixth.
