The Bruins lost for the first time this season in a game in which they were leading, falling to Florida State 3-1 on Sunday after Elizabeth Mason hit a two-out, three-run home run in the sixth inning off Rachel Garcia.
UCLA put two on with two out in the seventh inning before Aaliyah Jordan popped out into foul territory near the Bruins’ dugout to end the game.
Garcia continually pitched out of trouble before the sixth inning. She gave up eight hits and three runs in six innings, striking out seven and walking only one.
After having wiped out 4-0 deficits in each of its first two Series games, including a 7-4 victory over the Seminoles in its opener, UCLA scored first Sunday.
