UCLA's baseball season ends with first loss to Washington since 2008

The UCLA baseball team will not successfully defend its national championship this year

It has been a tough season for the UCLA baseball team.

How tough?

The Bruins were beaten by Washington in the season finale Sunday. The Huskies’ 6-1 victory in Seattle snapped UCLA’s 19-game winning streak in the series between the two teams.

The Bruins, the defending national champions, suffered through a season of injuries and inconsistency and finished with a 25-30-1 record. It ended with the first loss to Washington since losing, 5-2, on April 25, 2008. The Huskies nearly ended the streak on Saturday, but the Bruins scored five runs in the ninth inning for a 6-3 victory.

UCLA won two of three games in the weekend series.
