UCLA moves into first-place tie in Pac-10 with win over Arizona State

UCLA hasn't been providing very much run support for pitcher Gerrit Cole in recent weeks, but the Bruins got 12 hits Friday night in Tempe and came away with a 10-3 victory over Arizona State to pull into a first-place tie in the Pacific 10 baseball race.

With Oregon State losing to Oregon, 4-1, UCLA (32-21, 17-8) is tied with the Beavers for first place. Arizona State is one game behind.

Cole (6-7) struck out nine batters in eight innings. Pat Valaika, Cody Regis and Steve Rodriguez each had two RBIs in the first of a three-game series that ends the regular season.
