LOS ANGELES (AP) — Freshman Taylor Bloom gave up one hit and one unearned run in six-plus innings and Maryland knocked top-seeded UCLA out of the NCAA tournament with a 2-1 victory in the championship game of the UCLA regional Monday night.
Kevin Martir had three hits and scored a run and closer Kevin Mooney pitched three scoreless innings to lift Maryland (42-22) into a super regional against Virginia, a rematch of the series Virginia won in three games last year.
Martir walked off Grant Dyer (4-2) in the fourth inning and scored on Anthony Papio's double to break a 0-0 tie. Nick Cieri's groundout after a walk and Martir's second single made it 2-0 in the sixth.
Bloom did not have a three-ball count until he walked No. 3 hitter Ty Moore to lead off the seventh inning, when Mooney entered. Kort Peterson's one-out single after an infield error drove in Moore to make it 2-1, but Mooney struck out the final two batters of the inning.
Mooney struck out Darrell Miller Jr. with runners on first and third with two outs in the ninth inning. Mooney had three saves in the regional and struck out 10 of 19 batters.
UCLA finished 45-16.
