Eighth-Ranked Bruins Fall to #9 California

April 30, 2011

Box Score

BERKELEY, Calif. - Ninth-ranked California scored seven runs in the first inning and never looked back, as eighth-ranked UCLA fell via the mercy rule for the first time this year by a score of 9-1 on Saturday at Levine-Fricke Field.

The Bruins fall to 31-12 overall and 7-7 in Pac-10 play, while the Golden Bears improve to 33-9 and 9-5 in league action.

UCLA had just four hits, with senior GiOnna DiSalvatore recording a double and juniors Samantha Camuso, Andrea Harrison and Katie Schroeder posting singles. Freshman Jessica Hall (15-7) started, but lasted only a third of an inning, allowing five runs, three hits and two walks with one strikeout. Senior Donna Kerr relieved her and pitched 3 2/3 frames, striking out five and giving up four runs and four hits.

The Golden Bears loaded the bases right away in the bottom of the first inning on a single by Jamia Reid and back-to-back walks by Britt Vonk and Jace Williams. One out later, Lindsey Ziegenhirt singled to right to plate Reid to make it 1-0. Ashley Decker followed with a single to left to bring home Vonk to make it 2-0. Jordan Wallace was then hit by a pitch, which forced in Williams with the Bears' third run. One out later, Elia Reid hit the first pitch she saw out to center for a grand slam to make it 7-0.

The Bruins got on the board in the fourth. DiSalvatore led off with a double to left-center and scored when Harrison reached on an error by Wallace at first when a grounder went through her legs. UCLA still had a chance to score some more after loading the bases, but Cal pitcher Jolene Henderson struck out sophomore B.B. Bates to end the threat.

Cal brought out the mercy rule with two more in its half of the fourth. With one out, Elia Reid reached on a bunt single and Jamia Reid slapped a single to third. After both runners moved up on a grounder by Vonk, Williams singled to left-center to plate both Reid sisters to make it 9-1.

UCLA and Cal concludes its three-game series on Sunday at 12 p.m. Gametracker and live audio will be available at UCLABruins.com.
