UCSB blanks Irvine 2-0 to win their 13th straight Big West game.

IRVINE, Calif. - 13 is not unlucky for the first place Gauchos.

The Gauchos two runs came in the fifth inning on a sacrifice fly by Justin Willow and a pinch-hit triple by Aaron Parker.

Irvine had the tying runs on base in the bottom of the ninth inning but Gianni Bloom ended the game by throwing out a runner trying to steal second.

Gauchos freshman Matt Ager pitched the final two innings to get the save and finish off the shutout as Irvine only managed two hits in the loss.
