UCLA left Oregon and Jane Sanders Stadium on a high note as things went very right for the Bruins in their two wins last Saturday. The draw they would see the first weekend in Oklahoma City saw a double elimination style. The Bruins faced Auburn in Game One on Thursday night and would find their way to a loss thanks in part to hit Tigers batters in the first inning, one was even beaned in the head and didn’t miss a beat.

Whitney Jordan took her place at first base and ultimately Auburn won the game. The draw on Saturday for UCLA was Florida State, who played error free and also lost their first game with seven errors. To start the game against the Seminoles there were some UCLA Fireworks.

Mysha Sataraka launched a home run with the bases loaded and a 4-0 lead, her second home run in the Women’s College World Series. UCLA would see a good part of their lineup get hits against Florida State, but they lost 8-4 and their season came to an end on Saturday. The first inning was where UCLA did most of the damage and the Bruins were held to just two hits for the rest of the game as Florida State pitching dominated.

The Pac-12 Conference has been eliminated from the Women’s College World Series with the UCLA Bruins loss.
