Unable to play on its own field of the recent rain, the UC San Diego baseball team traveled to Pomona Pitzer Friday afternoon to play a nonconference "home" game against East Connecticut State. But the Tritons might have been better off staying in San Diego as they lost, 11-6.
Jeff Johnson hit a solo home run for East Connecticut State, which was playing its season opener, and Peter Bard and Mike DeLucia each had three hits.
Bobby Natal hit a two-run homer for UCSD (6-10-1) in the first inning and Brian Rude hit a solo shot in the second.
In Pacific 10 action:
UCLA 12, Cal 3--Torey Lovullo hit two home runs and had five runs batted in during the seventh inning to help UCLA over Cal in Pacific 10 game at Jackie Robinson Stadium.
