WP Shelby Babcock.  LP Ally Carda.  Unusual for this historic 27-year old rivalry which dominated Pac 10 and World Series contests for years, both teams are in the bottom half of Pac 12 standings; equally unusual, Hillenbrand Stadium was sparsely populated tonight, even on cold nights of the past, the stadium was usually standing room.

Top 5th, UCLA down in order.  B5th: Rodriguez fanned, Goodacre singled, legged it to 2nd on error by Bennett in center; Del Ponte popped to 2nd; Young struck out, Carda’s sixth.  Top 6: UCLA three up, three groundouts.
