Softball Drops 1-0 Pitchers Duel to Stanford

April 23, 2004

Final Stats

LOS ANGELES - In a game that turned into an impressive pitchers duelwith each pitcher striking out eight opposing batters, the UCLA softball team (29-7, 2-6 Pac-10) dropped a 1-0 decision to eighth-ranked Stanford (36-12, 6-4 Pac-10) on Friday afternoon at Easton Stadium. It is the first time this season that the Bruins have been shut out. For the Bruins, Keira Goerl struck out eight and walked just two batters in the loss.

The game was scoreless through the first five innings, with neither team advancing a runner past second base in the first five frames. In the top of the sixth, Stanford's Jackie Reinhart led off the inning with a chop single, went to second when Heather Shook walked, and was out at third base when Catalina Morris was out at third on a fielders choice.

Lauren Lappin then stepped into the batters box and earned a single to left field. She would take second and Morris would advance to third on the throw to the plate, which was just far enough off-line that Bruin catcher Emily Zaplatosch was unable to tag Shook in time, giving Stanford the 1-0 lead after five an a half innings.

That was all the lead that Stanford senior Dana Sorensen would need, as she retired the final eight Bruin batters in order to seal the win for the Cardinal.

The Bruins return to action on Saturday with a 2 pm first pitch against No. 5 California.
