Bruins Hit Three Homers, Run Rule Kentucky

Feb. 10, 2012

Box Score

LOS ANGELES - Seniors Samantha Camuso and Katie Schroeder, and freshman Stephany LaRosa all hit home runs, while freshman Ally Carda and junior Destiny Rodino combined on a one-hit shutout in the circle, as the Bruins defeated Kentucky 12-0 in five innings on Friday at Easton Stadium.

The Bruins improve to 2-0 on the year, while the Wildcats, who beat Pacific 3-2 in their first game of the day, fall to 1-2.

Schroeder finished the game 3-for-4 with three runs scored and four runs batted in, falling a triple short of the cycle. Camuso had a pair of hits and scored three times, while senior Dani Yudin went 2-for-3 with a pair of RBI. Eight of the nine Bruin starters had at least one hit.

In the circle, Carda started and struck out five in three hitless innings, walking two. Rodino came in relief of the freshman and fanned three in two innings, giving up one hit and two walks.

For the second game in a row, the Bruins, playing as the designated visiting team, scored first as Schroeder hammered the initial pitch of the contest over the #5 National Championship banner in center field to make it 1-0.

The Bruins hung a five-spot in the second. LaRosa led off with her first collegiate homer to left-center to make it 2-0. After a double by Yudin, senior Marti Reed singled to center to drive in the Bruins' third run. Reed moved up a base on a wild pitch and advanced to third when Emily Gaines dropped a fly ball in left off the bat of Camuso to put a pair of runners in scoring position. Schroeder then singled to right-center to plate both runners to increase UCLA's lead to 5-0. The Bruins loaded the bases after sophomore Kellie Fox reached on an error by Kara Howard in center and junior B.B. Bates reached on a miscue by Kara Dill at short. Carda would draw a bases-loaded free pass to force in Schroeder to make it 6-0.

UCLA smashed its third home run of the game in the top of the third, as Camuso deposited one over the left-center field wall to up the advantage to 7-0.

The Bruins tacked on two more in the fourth. Senior Andrea Harrison and Bates each had singles to start the inning, but Bates would be retired on a force play at second off the bat of Carda. One out later, Yudin cashed in both Harrison and Carda on a double to right to make it 9-0.

UCLA finished its scoring with three in the fifth. Camuso and Schroeder had back-to-back doubles to open the frame to make it 10-0. Fox then singled up the middle to plate Camuso and would take third after the ball got by Ellen Weaver in center. Harrison followed with a tapper to second to score Fox to make it a dozen runs for UCLA.

The Bruins play twice on Saturday to round out the opening weekend, facing Pacific at 12 p.m. and Kentucky at 2:30 p.m. Gametracker and free audio will be available at UCLABruins.com.
