Luck, good and bad, is part of hitting and part of baseball. Billy Bardens knows that. He became UC Irvine's starting third baseman because of a series of injuries to teammates, including a season-threatening knee injury to Ed Luna. He put together a 12-game hitting this season, partly, he says, because some balls dropped in for hits. "They weren't all the best hits, but I'll take them as they come," he said. "Those just make up for the line drives people catch."
