Sixth-Ranked Bruins Drop First Pac-10 Game to #13 Stanford

April 9, 2011

Box Score

LOS ANGELES - Senior GiOnna DiSalvatore had her second-straight, three-hit game, while juniors Katie Schroeder and Dani Yudin added two hits apiece, but 13th-ranked Stanford stole from the UCLA playbook by scoring all six of its runs with two outs, as the Cardinal knocked off the sixth-ranked Bruins 6-2 on Saturday at Easton Stadium.

The Bruins fall to 28-6 overall and 4-1 in Pac-10 play, while the Cardinal improve to 25-8 and 1-4 in league action.

UCLA had 10 hits, but left 11 on base. Freshman Jessica Hall (14-5) started and allowed five runs, five hits and three walks in 4 1/3 innings. Senior Donna Kerr tossed 2 2/3 frames of relief, striking out three and giving up a run, four hits and a walk.

The Bruins got on the scoreboard first with a run in their initial at-bat. Schroeder led off with a slap single to short, and one out later, stole second. DiSalvatore followed with a double down the right-field line to plate Schroeder to make it 1-0. The double was the 60th of DiSalvatore's career, as she became UCLA's all-time leader in that category.

Stanford came back with four in the third on two big bombs. With two outs, Corey Hanewich hit a 1-0 pitch out to center to even the score at one. After a single up the middle by Ashley Hansen and a walk to Jenna Rich, Danielle Miller blasted a 2-1 pitch out to center to put the Cardinal on top 4-1.

The Bruins battled back with a run in the bottom of the third. With one out, UCLA loaded the bases on a single to left by DiSalvatore, a walk to junior Andrea Harrison and a single to right by freshman Kellie Fox. Yudin followed with a single up the middle to plate DiSalvatore to cut the deficit to 4-2.

Stanford would score a pair of insurance runs with single scores in the fifth and sixth. In the fifth, Hansen had a one-out double to center and scored one out later on a single to left by Miller to make it 5-2. In the sixth, Kelsey Gerhart was hit by a pitch with one out and Sarah Hassman walked. One out later, Hansen singled up the middle to bring in Gerhart to increase the lead to 6-2.

The Bruins and the Cardinal play the rubber game of their three-game series on Sunday at 12 p.m. Gametracker and free live audio will be available at UCLABruins.com.
