UCLA plays for regional championship against Creighton

Creighton, the Los Angeles regional’s No. 4 seed, upset No. 3 seed New Mexico in the afternoon game, 7-2.

That means UCLA will face Creighton (28-29) for the second time this weekend in the regional championship. If UCLA wins tonight, the Bruins will be your regional champs and be off till next weekend. If Creighton wins, each team will have a loss and the winner-take-all championship game will be played Monday at 7 p.m.

UCLA (43-13) took care of Creighton 3-0 on Friday largely because of Adam Plutko’s two-hit shutout. The Bruins might have an advantage on the mound again tonight as they’ll be throwing sophomore righty Zack Weiss, their No. 3 starter.

Creighton is in the same spot UCLA was in a year ago: Facing elimination in the second game of a doubleheader throwing its No. 4 starter. Creighton is going with junior right hander Nick Musek. Musek has only started five games this season, compiling a 5.40 ERA.

Here are tonight’s lineups.
