Bruins Run-Rule ASU in Regular Season Finale

May 15, 2004

Final Stats

LOS ANGELES - UCLA closed out its regular season in fashion on Saturday afternoon at Easton Stadium, posting a 10-0 five-inning victory over Arizona State (33-31, 3-17 Pac-10). The Bruins (39-9, 12-8 Pac-10) pounded out 13 hits, five for extra bases, in the second game of the doubleheader.

After freshman pitcher Lisa Dodd got out of a bases loaded jam in the top of the first inning, the Bruins started off on an impressive foot offensively, as Caitlin Benyi put the first pitch thrown by Desiree Serrano over the right field fence for her 20th home run of the season and second home run of the day. Lisa Dodd would then draw a two-out walk, go to second on a single by Claire Sua, and score on an RBI single through the right side by Jodie Legaspi to give the Bruins a 2-0 lead after one inning of play.

The offense kept coming with two hits in the second inning and a seven-run third inning, in which UCLA sent 11 batters to the plate. That third inning featured doubles from Caitlin Benyi and Claire Sua, who went 2-for-2 with an RBI and a walk in her final regular season game as a Bruin.

UCLA took a 9-0 lead into the bottom of the fourth inning, when head coach Sue Enquist emptied her bench, sending five consecutive pinch hitters to the plate to open the inning. Shana Stewart led off the inning by drawing a five-pitch walk and went to second on a single through the right side by Nicole Sandberg. Alissa Eno then connected on a one-out double to right center field that scored Stewart for the 10th run of the game. Whitney Holum was the next pinch hitter out of the dugout, and she drew a walk to load the bases, but the Bruins were unable to push any additional runs across.

Dodd retired the side in order in the top of the fifth inning to complete the run-rule victory. She pitched a four-hit shutout, striking out two and not allowing a walk. She is now 15-2 on the season.

The Bruins now await tomorrow's NCAA Selection to find out their seeding for NCAA Regionals and which seven teams will travel to Westwood to complete UCLA's Regional field. The field will be announced live on ESPNEWS between 5:30 and 6 pm Pacific Time on Sunday, May 16.
