Goerl Strikes Out 11 as Softball Defeats Stanford, 2-0

April 28, 2002

Final Stats

STANFORD, CA - UCLA maintained its standing in first place in the Pac-10, defeating Stanford by a 2-0 margin on Sunday afternoon at Boyd and Jill Smith Family Stadium in Stanford, CA. The Bruins are now 44-6, 12-3 Pac-10, while Stanford falls to 37-14 (4-11 Pac-10).

The Bruins started off quickly in the first inning, getting on the board with a two-out solo home run to left field by first baseman Tairia Mims. Stanford threatened in the bottom of the frame, as Jessica Mendoza advanced to third base on a walk, a stolen base and a ground out, but was stranded at third when Kira Ching struck out to end the inning.

UCLA posted another two-out rally in the third inning on singles by Mims and Stacey Nuveman, but the Bruins were unable to capitalize as Stephanie Ramos struck out to end the inning.

Nuveman narrowly missed a home run as the lead-off hitter in the fifth inning, fouling a ball over the left field fence before hitting the 200 foot marking on the outfield wall down the left field line and legging out a double. UCLA proceeded to manufacture a second run, as pinch-runner Julie Hoshizaki advanced to third on a ground-out by Stephanie Ramos and scored on a ground out by Claire Sua.

That was all the offense UCLA would need, as Keira Goerl posted another impressive performance in the circle, striking out 11 and allowing just two hits in the game. Goerl is now 24-4 on the season, and has gone 3-0 this week with wins over Washington and Stanford, plus Friday's no-hitter at California.

UCLA returns to action on Friday afternoon in Eugene, OR, with a 2 pm first pitch against Oregon. The Bruins will then travel to Corvallis, OR for Saturday and Sunday games at Oregon State.
