No. 9 UCLA edges Southern California 6-5 on Bono's ninth-inning single

LOS ANGELES -- In a wild back-and-forth contest Sunday, No. 9 UCLA edged Southern California 6-5 at Dedeaux Field.

Junior David Berg picked up the win with 2.2 innings in relief while Nigel Nootbaar took the loss for the Trojans after allowing a run in 0.2 innings of work. Sophomore Cody Poteet started the game for the Bruins, allowing three runs (one earned) in 6.1 innings pitched while striking out one.

In the sixth, USC grabbed the lead with Blake Lacey's RBI double. Lacey then scored on AJ Ramirez's squeeze bunt. However, the Bruins came right back with four runs in the seventh, all with two outs. Two Trojan errors, a hit batsman and Ty Moore's two-run single all contributed to the outburst.

After USC scored a run to make it 4-3, Chris Keck crushed his first home run of the year off Kyle Davis to bring UCLA’s lead back up to two.

USC came back in the bottom half of the inning though, scoring a pair of runs to tie the game at 5. That eventually led to the game-winning heroics by sophomore Christoph Bono, who smacked a single through the right side of the USC infield to score Shane Zeile -- who had reached base with an infield single -- with the go-ahead run.
