UCLA Athletics had an eventful year, winning multiple national championships and staging several miraculous comebacks. Looking back on the year that was, the Daily Bruin Sports staff got together and picked eight of the Bruins’ most memorable moments of the year.
A number of athletes and teams on campus deserve recognition for their achievements over the past year. The Daily Bruin Sports staff joined heads and came up with a handful of serious – and not so serious – awards to hand out to the most deserving candidates.
The Bruins ran out of arms.
No. 2 seed UCLA baseball (38-21) lost 13-8 to No. 1 seed Minnesota (44-13) on Sunday night in the Minneapolis regional, eliminating the Bruins from the NCAA tournament and ending their season.
The Bruins’ pitching staff was plagued with injuries all season, forcing inexperienced pitchers into major roles from the bullpen.
No. 19 UCLA baseball (36-19, 19-11 Pac-12) lost three potential starting pitchers over the course of the season, leading coach John Savage to reach into his bullpen to find three new starters in freshman Zach Pettway, sophomore Ryan Garcia and redshirt sophomore Jack Ralston.
The two highest scoring teams in the Pac-12 have shut each other down.
No. 18 UCLA baseball (35-19, 18-11 Pac-12) lost 4-1 to No. 2 Oregon State (44-9-1, 20-8-1) 4-1 Friday evening, falling in the series after getting shutout Thursday.
Jake Bird stood alone on the mound of Jackie Robinson Stadium after Tuesday night’s game against CSUN, throwing some practice pitches to prepare for what could have been his final home game as a Bruin.
