WESTWOOD (AP) — Kyle Zimmer struck out 11 in a four-hitter and Nik Balog had four hits and two RBIs in San Francisco’s 3-0 victory over UCLA on Friday night in the NCAA Los Angeles Regional.


Zimmer (6-4) survived a shaky ninth inning, striking out Cody Regis with the bases load to end the game.

The sophomore right-hander didn’t walk a batter.


Balog had an RBI single for San Francisco (32-23) in the third inning, and made it 2-0 in the fifth with an infield RBI hit. San Francisco added a run in the eighth.


Gerrit Cole (6-8) pitched 7 1-3 for UCLA (33-23), giving up 11 hits and striking out 10.

It was the fifth time this season Cole has fanned 10 batters in a game.


The Dons will play UC Irvine on Saturday, and UCLA will face Fresno State in an elimination game.
