SANTA BARBARA, Calif -

Junior left fielder Joey Epperson provided a satisfying finish for Gauchos fans in Sunday's rubber match with No. 19 UC Irvine, smacking a walk-off home run off Anteaters closer Race Parmenter in the bottom of the ninth inning to erase a two-run deficit and give UCSB a 7-6 win to clinch their second series of the year over a ranked opponent.
