Last night UCLA defeated LMU 6-1 forcing the winner-take-all rematch to take place tonight. UCLA starter Nick Nastrini had an excellence performance last night striking out six Lions in the first four innings and allowing only two hits and one run according to bruinsnation.com. Either UCLA or LMU will be the Los Angeles Regionals winner and will advance to the Super Regional.
Despite going nearly 100 days between outings due to injury, Nick Nastrini was ready when called upon on Sunday, leading the Bruins to a 6-1 victory over LMU to stay alive in the Los Angeles Regional.
