As of December 16, 2010; Rankings from Coaches' Poll[1]

The 2010 UCLA Bruins baseball team represented the University of California, Los Angeles in the 2010 NCAA Division I baseball season. The Bruins played their home games in Jackie Robinson Stadium. UCLA finished the regular season as the #2 team in the Pacific-10 Conference behind the Arizona State Sun Devils. The UCLA Bruins were selected to play in the 2010 NCAA Division I Baseball Tournament as the #1 seed in the Los Angeles, CA Regional and the #6 national seed. UCLA went 5-1 in the Regionals and beat UC Irvine in the finals to advance to the Super Regionals. The Bruins beat the Cal State Fullerton Titans in three games to win the Los Angeles Super Regional and advance to the 2010 College World Series.

Before the 2010 College World Series, the Bruins had never won a single game in the CWS. The team broke that 0-4 all time CWS record by defeating the #3 ranked Florida Gators in the first round, 11 to 3. The 2010 baseball team improved on their first ever CWS win by beating TCU 6 to 3 in the second round. Due to the double elimination format of the CWS, UCLA played TCU again in the semifinals. After losing the first game 6 to 2, the Bruins advanced to the Championship Series by defeating TCU 10 to 3 in the decisive second game.[2] The South Carolina Gamecocks became the 2010 national champions after beating UCLA in two consecutive games, 7-1 and 2-1.[3][4]

Previous season[edit]

The Bruins completed the 2009 season with a 27–29 overall record, tying Oregon State for third place in the Pac-10 Conference behind #1 Arizona State and #2 Washington State.[5] The Bruins were not invited to the 2009 NCAA Division I Baseball Tournament since Oregon State had a better overall record.
