UCLA made a point to say this was more than just a matchup against Matt Purke, Texas Christian's standout pitcher. Turns out, the Bruins were right. The Horned Frogs received a strong effort from Purke, but three home runs and solid relief from Tyler Lockwood were equally important in their 6-2 victory Friday at the College World Series. The teams play Saturday at 11 a.m. PDT at Rosenblatt Stadium to determine which advances to the best-of-three championship series. The Bruins (50-15)

Reporting from Omaha — Matt Purke wears black eyeglasses and his baseball cap sits tilted on his head, as those worn by many left-handed pitchers seem to do. He's a bit quirky, too — another trait shared by lefties in baseball lore — and his Texas Christian teammates have nicknamed him " Harry Potter." You could say he also has some other wizard-like qualities. Purke, a 6-foot-4, 180-pound freshman with a fastball that tops out at about 97 mph, has a record of 15-0 in 17 starts.

John Savage, UCLA's baseball coach, speaks fondly of USC - at least about his time there. In one of his career steps before taking over UCLA's program in 2005, Savage was USC's pitching coach. And there are plenty of people around USC who would like to see him back in cardinal and gold - this time as coach of the Trojans. USC Athletic Director Pat Haden is said to be one of them. Haden hasn't publicly revealed who he favors to hire, but Savage is thought to be at the top of the list.

Big Division I baseball program, right? Well, in about the fourth inning of UCLA's game Tuesday night, someone opens the hood to the snack bar grill, and burger smoke drifts down over Jackie Robinson Stadium like velum. It's enough to make a vegetarian join the steer-of-the-month club. Indeed, the smoke is so primal and evocative, a couple of the infielders look like they are about to cry. So summarizes the casual/cozy vibe of college baseball, even around an elite program such as this.

Surrounded by family and friends at an Encino restaurant, left-handed pitcher Max Fried of Studio City Harvard-Westlake looked up at the television screen and heard Commissioner Bud Selig announce his name as the seventh overall selection in baseball's amateur draft. "Honestly, it's all a blur," Fried said Monday night. "It's an unbelievable feeling. " Fried was selected by the San Diego Padres. His Harvard-Westlake teammate Lucas Giolito was selected No. 16 overall by the Washington Nationals, ending a day of uncertainty for the 6-foot-6 right-hander.

This weekend might have been more interesting if Vladimir Shpunt were still on the Dodgers' payroll.… Would the "positive energy" transmitted by the Russian emigre physicist and self-proclaimed healer trump the negative vibe directed at Manny Ramirez by Red Sox fans? … Sadly, we'll never know.… The Sandy Koufax comparisons are premature, of course, but Clayton Kershaw gives Dodgers fans reason to dream.

PGA Tour rookie Brendan Steele birdied Nos. 17 and 18 for a four-under-par 68, grabbing sole possession of the lead in the PGA Tour's Texas Open at San Antonio at seven-under 209 after beginning the round Saturday tied with six other players for the top spot. Steele's late surge was enough for a one-stroke lead over Cameron Tringale , who led by two after 16 holes but hooked his tee shot on No. 18 into the deep rough and finished with a bogey for a 68. Another rookie, Kevin Chappell (70)
