OMAHA, Neb. (AP) -- Eric Filia drove in a career-high five runs, Nick Vander Tuig limited Mississippi State to five hits in eight innings, and UCLA won its first national championship in baseball, 8-0 Tuesday night.
The Bruins (49-17) completed a two-game sweep in the College World Series finals and ended the season with 11 straight wins.
Vander Tuig held off the Bulldogs (51-20) when they threatened in the fourth, fifth and eighth innings and recorded his fourth win in the NCAA tournament. Vander Tuig (14-4) struck out six and walked one. David Berg pitched the ninth.
Filia produced runs with a sacrifice fly, squeeze bunt and two base hits as the Bruins scored their most runs in 18 games.
Bulldogs starter Luis Pollorena (6-4) lasted one inning.
UCLA allowed four runs in five games to set a CWS record for fewest in the metal-bat era that started in 1974.
