Trojan two-hole hitter Rhylan Thomas gets mobbed by his teammates after supplying the bottom-of-the-ninth heroics to beat UCLA.


USC Pulls Ninth-Inning Rally On UCLA


LOS ANGELES, Calif. — Man, this cross-town rivalry in Tinseltown. It has seen some insane showdowns over the years. 

Gary Beban vs. O.J. Simpson

Lew Alcindor vs. Paul Westphal

Troy Aikman vs. Rodney Peete

Troy Glaus vs. Jason Lane

Joe Bruin vs. Traveler

Well the first time these two storied programs faced off this season in baseball, it was not a memorable showdown of titanic proportions. It was more like the Titanic period, for USC. Three weeks ago the Bruins won a Sunday matchup between these two as part of the Southern California College Baseball Classic by a 10-1 count.
