TCU's goal vs. UCLA: national semifinals

TCU will send Kyle Winkler (12-1) to the mound at 8 p.m. Monday against UCLA with an opportunity for the Horned Frogs to advance to the national semifinals.

If TCU wins, it would not have to play again until the semifinals Friday -- giving plenty of rest to freshman ace Matt Purke (15-0), who mowed down Florida State in the CWS opener Saturday.

Gerrit Cole, the Bruins' No. 1 starter, will start tonight for UCLA (49-14). The game will be televised on ESPN2.
