Chalk up another series victory for the UCLA baseball team.

After losing its first two games of the week, the No. 3 Bruins could have had a disastrous weekend in Corvallis, Ore. Instead, UCLA won the final two games of the crucial conference series, sealing it with an 8-2 defeat of No. 17 Oregon State on Sunday afternoon.

Second baseman Tyler Rahmatulla led UCLA (25-3, 4-2 Pac-10) at plate, going 3 for 4 in the finale. He doubled in a run in the first frame before breaking a 2-2 tie with a solo home run in the seventh. Junior outfielder Brett Krill cranked a 3-0 pitch for a grand slam in a five-run ninth.

The pitching was strong yet again. Junior left-hander Rob Rasmussen (5-0) gave up two runs in seven innings to continue a recent trend. He has not allowed more than three runs in any of his last six starts.

UCLA could potentially move up in the Baseball America collegiate poll after top-ranked Arizona State dropped two of three at Washington State over the weekend.
