Everett tied up the contest 1-1 in the bottom of the fourth with a home run to right field. The solo shot marked his 15th home run of the year and his 62nd run batted in of the season.
UCLA scored the winning run in the fifth on a Will Penniall sacrifice fly that drove home Eric Taylor Jr. Taylor walked, was sacrificed to second and advanced to third on a Josh Roenicke single.
The Bruins added runs in the eighth and ninth innings to put away the game. Chris Jensen was hit by a pitch and later scored in the eighth on a Hector Ambriz single. The final tally of the game came in the ninth when Jensen came home on a Nolan Rouse sacrifice fly to center.
