Harrison Leaves the Yard Twice in Bruins' Win Over San Diego State

Feb. 13, 2011

Video Recap | Box Score

LOS ANGELES - Junior Andrea Harrison recorded her fifth-career, two-homer game, going 3-for-3 and tying a personal best with six runs batted in, as the top-ranked Bruins completed a five-win weekend with an 8-2 victory over San Diego State on Sunday at the Stacy Winsberg Memorial Tournament at Easton Stadium.

Harrison, who reached base in all four plate appearances with a walk in her first at-bat, became the 13th Bruin to post at least six RBI in one game and just the second player to do it twice in a career (Julie Adams). Eight of the UCLA starters had at least one hit. In the circle, senior Donna Kerr improved to 3-0, going the distance and striking out three with two runs, five hits and one walk allowed.

The Aztecs (4-1) got on the board with a pair in the top of the first. Hayley Miles and Lindsey Marquez led off with back-to-back doubles to put San Diego State up 1-0. After Marquez moved to third on a fly out to right by Lorena Klopp, Justeen Maeva singled through the left side to plate Marquez to make it 2-0.

The Bruins cut their deficit in half with a run in the third. Junior Katie Schroeder led off with a double to right-center, and two outs later, came home on a single up the middle by Harrison.

UCLA took the lead for good on one swing of the bat in the fifth. Schroeder was hit by a pitch to start things off and moved to second on a slap single to short by sophomore B.B. Bates. After senior GiOnna DiSalvatore tapped into a fielder's choice to second to retire Bates, Harrison launched her first homer of the afternoon and second of the weekend to center to make it 4-2.

The Bruins busted it open with a four-run sixth. Freshmen Alyssa Tiumalu and Talee Snow started the inning with a walk and a single. One out later, junior Marti Reed, who was running for Tiumalu, and Snow moved up a base on a sacrifice by Bates. DiSalvatore then drove both runners in on a single to right to make it 6-2. Harrison followed by hitting an 0-2 pitch out to right-center to up the advantage to 8-2.

After a shaky first inning, Kerr rebounded to allow only four baserunners over the last six innings. She retired 15 of the last 17 batters she faced.

In other action on Sunday at Easton Stadium, North Dakota State edged UCF 2-1 and San Diego State knocked off Utah State 2-0.

The Bruins next play on Wednesday at Cal State Fullerton at 4 p.m. Gametracker will be available at UCLABruins.com.
