To reach Omaha, where UCLA last season won its first College World Series title, the Bruins survived a Super Regional at Cal State Fullerton against a team that finished with one of the best records in the Titans' storied history. There could be another postseason showdown this season. Fullerton is ranked No. 1 in several preseason polls, UCLA between ninth and 15th. "They deserve to be No. 1," UCLA Coach John Savage said. "In terms of quality and depth, their pitching is just as good or better than it was last season.

The question might start being asked. Has the college baseball landscape in Southern California shifted? UCLA can make a case for that after a 3-0 victory over host Cal State Fullerton at Goodwin Field on Saturday night that retired the third-ranked Titans for the season and sent the Bruins to the College World Series in Omaha. This could be a watershed moment. Fullerton has dominated the area baseball scene, winning four national titles, since moving to the Division I level in 1975.

Cal State Fullerton took the first step Friday night toward what it hopes will be a return to the College World Series, defeating Columbia, 4-1, by using a familiar and simple formula: Score early and ride stellar pitching the rest of the way. Titans right-hander Grahamm Wiest delivered his best performance of the season, pitching a three-hitter, his first complete game of the year. And third baseman Matt Chapman homered, drove in two runs and scored twice for the Titans. "We're good at formulating a plan and sticking to it," Chapman said.

Numbers don't lie. UCLA's baseball team has been little more than a speed bump for Cal State Fullerton. All you have to do is go to the big box score. In 2007, the Bruins toddled off to Fullerton for a super regional. They were sent right back home after being outscored, 14-3, in two losses to the Titans. In 2008, the Bruins returned to Fullerton, beat the Titans in one game and needed only one more victory to advance. UCLA pitchers gave up 16 runs in two losses to Fullerton.

Jason Dietrich always wanted to put on Cal State Fullerton pinstripes. He cheered for the Titans baseball team as a teenager, and visualized himself as a player jogging onto Goodwin Field to an ovation one day. That dream didn't materialize. But at 39, Dietrich is finally wearing those pinstripes and has played a major behind-the-scenes role for a Fullerton team that is among college baseball's best. As pitching coach, Dietrich guides one of the game's stingiest - and youngest - staffs.
