#5 UCLA Drops Series Finale to #1 Washington

April 3, 2010

Box Score

SEATTLE, Wash. - A two-run homer by sophomore Dani Yudin in the top of the seventh inning got the fifth-ranked Bruins on the scoreboard, but #1 Washington picked up a 7-2 victory on Saturday at the Husky Softball Stadium to win the weekend series.

The Bruins fall to 27-6 overall and 1-2 in Pac-10 play, while the Huskies improve to 30-3 and 2-1 in league action.

Junior GiOnna DiSalvatore had two of the Bruins' four hits on a pair of singles. Junior Donna Kerr (13-3) started and allowed six runs (three earned), six hits and two walks in 4 1/3 innings with five strikeouts. Freshman Destiny Rodino tossed the last 1 2/3 innings and gave up one run, two hits and one walk.

The Huskies scored twice in the bottom of the first on a pair of unearned runs. With one out and Jenn Salling at second following a leadoff double to left-center, Danielle Lawrie grounded a ball back to Kerr in the circle, but the UCLA pitcher threw it in the dirt to third in an attempt to get Salling, allowing the Husky runner to score and Lawrie to move to second. Niki Williams followed with a double to right-center to plate Lawrie to make it 2-0.

In the third, Washington added another unearned run. The Huskies opened the inning with a single to right by Kimi Pohlman and a hit by pitch of Lawrie. One out later, both runners moved up on a passed ball and Pohlman would come home on a scoring fly ball by Shawna Wright to make it 3-0.

The Huskies added four more in the fifth. With runners at the corners and one out, Wright doubled down the right-field line to plate Pohlman and Williams to make it 5-0. One out later, Hooch Fagaly walked and came home along with pinch-runner Amanda Fitzsimmons on a single to left-center by Jerrin Fa'asua to increase the margin to 7-0.

The Bruins avoided the shutout with a pair of runs in the seventh. DiSalvatore singled to left-center to start the inning and came home one out later on Yudin's second home run of the season to right to make it 7-2.

The Bruins open up their Pac-10 home schedule on Friday at 7 p.m. against Arizona State at Easton Stadium. The contest will feature Gametracker and live audio on UCLABruins.com, and will also be broadcast on a tape delay basis by Fox Sports Net.
