Bottom 4

UCLA was leading 3-0 in the fourth when Ross Mitchell hit Kevin Williams to lead off the inning. Ben Bracewell came in to pitch for the Bulldogs before Shane Zeile bunted Williams to second -- one of 12 sacrifice bunts UCLA had in the CWS, which tied the record set in 1962 -- before Cody Regis singled him home. That made it 4-0 and the Bruins would add one more run in the inning as they were well on their way to the national championship.

Eric Filia | UCLA | RF

With his RBI sacrifice fly in the first inning, RBI sacrifice bunt on a safety squeeze in the third, RBI single in the sixth and two-run single in the eighth, Eric Filia’s eight RBI led all players in the 2013 CWS. Filia had five RBI on Tuesdasy night -- the most in a CWS Championship Finals game since Steve Detwiler of Fresno State in 2008. Filia finished 5-for-15 in the College World Series.

"I'm so proud of these guys -- they did it on the field. I don't think any of the experts thought that we'd be here at this stage. We did it the right way by playing good baseball. We pitched, we defended, with some good offense -- opportunistic offense -- and we outlasted everybody."
-- UCLA head coach John Savage
