SEATTLE, Wash. - Down by five, the 16th-ranked Bruins scored seven times with two outs in the top of the sixth inning to complete an epic comeback on Friday night, as UCLA defeated #7 Washington 7-5 at Husky Softball Stadium. Junior B.B. Bates drove in the go-ahead runs on a double, while freshman Ally Carda added a two-run homer.

The Bruins improve to 28-11 overall and 5-5 in Pac-12 play, while the Huskies fall to 34-8 and 5-7 in league action.

Senior Katie Schroeder recorded two hits, as six of the Bruin starters had at least one. Sophomore Jessica Hall (13-6) earned the win in relief, striking out six in 4 2/3 innings and allowing two runs, three hits and four walks. Carda started and pitched 2 1/3 frames, giving up three runs, three hits and two walks.

Washington jumped out to a 2-0 lead on one swing of the bat in the second. With one out, Courtney Gano walked and Kylee Lahners hit a home run to left to put the home team on top.

The Huskies added three in the third. Nikia Williams led off with a double to right-center and advanced to third on a fielding error by Schroeder. Kaitlin Inglesby then lifted a sacrifice fly to left to bring in Williams for Washington's third run. One out later, Kimberlee Souza walked and advanced to second on a passed ball, while Hooch Fagaly drew a free pass. Gano then doubled down the left-field line to bring in Souza and Fagaly to make it 5-0.

The Bruins were held scoreless for the first 5 2/3 innings before rallying in the sixth, as nine straight reached base. Senior Dani Yudin drew a two-out walk and came home on Carda's fourth home run of the season to left to make it 5-2. Sophomore Talee Snow then drew a walk and was pinch-run for by freshman Sam Duran, who scored on a Schroeder double to right-center to cut the deficit to 5-3. A single up the middle by freshman Stephany LaRosa brought home Schroeder to make it 5-4 and a double to left-center by senior Andrea Harrison put two in scoring position. Bates followed with a flare double to left, as LaRosa and Harrison scored to give the Bruins a 6-5 lead. Senior Samantha Camuso then smashed a ball to second that went through Lahners legs, as Bates came around to score UCLA's seventh run.

Hall struck out one in each of her innings, including a pair in the sixth. After a leadoff walk in the bottom of the seventh, she retired Kimi Pohlman, Souza and Fagaly in order to end the game.

The Bruins continue their three-game series with the Huskies on Saturday at 4 p.m. Gametracker and free audio will be available at UCLABruins.com, as well as live updates at twitter.com/uclasoftball.
