In what looked to be one of the better midweek match-ups thus far in the season, UCLA headed down to Cal State Fullerton tonight to take on the Titans. Fullerton senior pitcher Candice Baker had just received national player of the week honors from two separate organizations for her superb outings in wins over Stanford and Oregon State.

A trifecta against Pac-10 opponents was not to be for Baker, however, as the Bruins lit her (and the scoreboard) up. UCLA scored seven runs in the 3 2/3 innings Baker pitched, en route to an 8-1 victory. In all, the Bruins belted five homers.

According to the linked article in the previous paragraph, the game drew over 1,000 fans, a nice development for the sport.
