Ten Friday thoughts

  A year after hitting .252 as a team, UCLA sits with a .329 team batting average.

In my years of covering college baseball, I’ve spent plenty of late-night hours writing. More often than not, some late-night televangelist will come on the screen at some point around 3 or 4 a.m. and ask viewers to call in and order free “holy water."

Well, I don’t know about that guy, but if he can make it, perhaps UCLA coach John Savage should add a similar business to his resume.

Savage’s Bruins are doing some filthy things offensively so far this season. UCLA improved to 8-1 on the year with a 14-2 win against Michigan State. The Bruins were an absolute nightmare atop the offensive lineup, as the foursome of Kevin Kramer, Luke Persico, Ty Moore and Chris Keck combined to go 9-for-15 with Keck and Kramer each hitting a home run. Meanwhile, on the mound, righthander James Kaprielian struck out eight and allowed just two runs in seven innings.

UCLA finished 2014 with a .252 team batting average. So far this year for this squad? The Bruins are sitting pretty with a .329 clip.

Pass me some of that water, John.
