Brett Jackson followed with a double, but Unfortunately for the Bears freshman Danny Oh lined out to right field, junior Jeff Kobernus flew out to deep center and junior Blake Smith flew out to the right field warning track to end the game.

In game two, the Bears did not get a hit until the fourth inning as UCR junior left-hander Paul Applebee threw a complete game with four hits, two runs, one walk and eight strikeouts.
