GLENDALE — As a freshman at UC Irvine in 2007, Christian Bergman was thrown onto the biggest stage as a spot starter in the NCAA Division I College World Series.

"Having tasted it ... it's one of those things where you want to get back so badly," said Bergman on Monday after it was announced that Irvine would play in the Los Angeles Regional, beginning Friday with a showdown against defending NCAA champion LSU.

Erik Boal Tito Cruz hasn't played in Long Beach State's three postseason games.
