Sixth-Ranked Bruins Rout Florida Atlantic in Season Opener

Feb. 13, 2010

Box Score

CLERMONT, Fla. - Seniors Megan Langenfeld and Kaila Shull and sophomore Samantha Camuso all hit home runs, while junior Donna Kerr and sophomore Aleah Macon combined to strike out 14, as the sixth-ranked Bruins defeated Florida Atlantic 11-0 in five innings on Saturday at Dot Richardson's National Collegiate Softball Invitational.

The Bruins face #16 Tennessee in their second game of the day at approximately 12:35 p.m. PT/3:35 p.m. ET.

The Bruins (1-0) jumped out to a 3-0 lead in the bottom of the first thanks to a pair of long balls. With two outs and freshman B.B. Bates at second, Langenfeld launched a 250-foot home run over the batting cage back of right field on a 3-1 pitch to put the Bruins up 2-0. The next batter, Shull, took a 2-2 offering out to straightaway center to make it 3-0.

In the second, UCLA tacked on six more runs thanks to a pair of Florida Atlantic errors. Juniors Monica Harrison and Katie Schroeder led off with back-to-back singles, and two outs later, Langenfeld walked to load the bases. Shull followed with a free pass to plate Harrison to put the Bruins on top 4-0. With junior GiOnna DiSalvatore at the plate, FAU catcher Kerri Croney tried to pick Schroeder off third, but Ashlyn Parmerter dropped the throw, allowing Schroeder to score to make it 5-0. DiSalvatore then lifted a high ball to center, but Kirstin Austin had it bounce out of her glove. Langenfeld and Shull came home to make it 7-0 as DiSalvatore took third. Sophomore Samantha Camuso hit the Bruins' third home run of the game, a two-run shot to straightaway center, to raise UCLA's advantage to 9-0.

The Bruins added two more in the fourth. Langenfeld was hit by a pitch to start off the inning and was pinch-run for by junior Grace Murray. Two outs later, Camuso singled to left, moving up to second on the throw to the infield as Murray took third. Burney then lifted a double over Austin's head in center, scoring both Murray and junior Amy Crawford, who was pinch-running for Camuso, to make it 11-0.

Kerr (1-0) struck out the first five batters she faced, fanning the side in the first, third and fourth. She struck out 11 for the game. The only hits she allowed were an infield single in the second and a leadoff double in the fourth. Macon set down FAU (0-2) in order on three strikeouts in the fifth to wrap up the victory.

Camuso and Schroeder each had two hits for the Bruins, who had nine as a team.
