The adversity has arrived.
The UCLA baseball team was sailing along just fine, winning its first 22 games. But the No. 3-ranked team in the nation has suddenly dropped two of three and faces a tough trip to No. 17 Oregon State this weekend. It's uncharted territory for the No. 3 Bruins, who have not had to play a weekend series after losing their midweek game (UCLA fell to Cal State Fullerton by a score of 6-1 at home on Tuesday night).
"This is our first test," head coach John Savage said following Tuesday's loss. "We have to bounce back just like we did with the first loss last Saturday."
Here are the scheduled starting pitchers:
Today, 5:30 p.m. -- RHP Gerrit Cole (6-0, 2.49 ERA) v. OSU RHP Greg Peavey (2-0, 2.13 ERA)
Saturday, 2 p.m. -- RHP Trevor Bauer (5-1, 2.28 ERA) v. TBA
Sunday, noon -- LHP Rob Rasmussen (4-0, 2.95 ERA) v. TBA
