Bruins Mightier Than the Ducks

May 1, 2010

Box Score | Postgame Video

LOS ANGELES - Sophomore Andrea Harrison left the yard twice and senior Julie Burney and junior GiOnna DiSalvatore also homered, as the fifth-ranked Bruins backed up a six-strikeout effort by junior Whitney Baker in the circle with 10 runs in a 10-2, five-inning victory over #18 Oregon on Saturday at Easton Stadium.

The Bruins win their eighth straight to improve to 35-9 overall and 9-5 in Pac-10 play, while the Ducks fall to 31-12 and 7-7 in league action.

Andrea Harrison tied career highs with three hits, four RBI and two home runs. Burney, DiSalvatore and freshman B.B. Bates also had a pair of hits and runs batted in.

Baker improved to 3-1 on the season, giving up two runs and three hits in five innings. She retired the first five batters of the game and 10 of the first 12, setting down the side in order in the first and third. Baker also struck out a pair in both the second and fourth.

UCLA made it 2-0 in the first on one swing of the bat. With one out, junior Monica Harrison reached on a fielding error by Kelsey Chambers at short and came home one out later on Andrea Harrison's first homer of the game and 10th of the season to center to put the Bruins on the board.

In the second, sophomore Samantha Camuso walked to start the inning and came in on Burney's 13th home run of the year to left to increase the lead to 4-0. One out later, Bates reached on a bunt single and scored on a triple down the right-field line by DiSalvatore to make it 5-0.

The Bruins added two more in the third. Andrea Harrison singled to right and advanced to second when sophomore Dani Yudin reached on an error by second baseman Kaylan Howard. The Ducks recorded the next two outs, but freshman Charlotte Dolan walked to load the bases and Bates doubled to left-center to bring home Harrison and Yudin to up the advantage to 7-0.

UCLA brought the mercy rule into effect in the bottom of the fourth, scoring twice. Senior Megan Langenfeld walked to open the inning and came home on Andrea Harrison's second homer of the game and 11th of the season to right to make it 9-0.

The mercy rule was briefly recalled in the top of the fifth when Ashley Kivett hit a leadoff homer and Brittany Rumfelt recorded a one-out bomb to make it 9-2. But DiSalvatore clinched the Bruins' 17th mercy-rule win of the season with a leadoff home run to right, her fifth of the season, to give UCLA a 10-2 victory.

The Bruins and the Ducks wrap up their three-game series on Sunday at 12 p.m. Gametracker and live audio will be available at UCLABruins.com.
