Chris Rabago batted 2-4 with a run scored to lead the Anteaters (18-8, 1-3 BWC) and Conner Spencer added two hits and one RBI.
Irvine got off to a fast start with a pair of runs in the first inning. Rabago delivered a lead-off double down the left field line, and an RBI-single by Spencer and a run-scoring pop up by Ronnie Shaeffer led to the early Anteater lead.
Taylor Sparks pushed the lead to 3-0 in the fourth inning when he belted a solo homerun over the left field wall. Scott Gottschling (1 H, 1 RBI) then doubled and later scored on a sacrifice squeeze to put the UCI lead at 4-0.
