April 2, 2011

Box Score | Video Recap

LOS ANGELES - Trailing again early after giving up a run in the top of the first, seventh-ranked UCLA responded with nine unanswered runs to post its 10th mercy-rule victory of the season in a 9-1, six-inning win over Oregon State on Saturday at Easton Stadium. Juniors Andrea Harrison and Katie Schroeder each had two-hit games for the Bruins.

The Bruins improve to 25-5 overall and 2-0 in Pac-10 play, while the Beavers fall to 16-10 and 0-2 in league action.

Freshman Jessica Hall earned the win in the circle to move to 14-4 on the season, striking out one and giving up a run, three hits and three walks in five innings. Junior Aleah Macon pitched a 1-2-3 inning of relief in the sixth.

For the second straight game, Oregon State jumped out to an early lead with a run in the first. With Maggie Doremus at first after reaching on a fielder's choice, Erin Guzy doubled to left-center to put a pair of runners in scoring position. After a walk to Paige Hall loaded the bases, Desiree Beltran lifted a deep fly ball to center to bring home Doremus to make it 1-0.

UCLA responded with three in the bottom of the first. Schroeder led off with a single up the middle and moved to second on a wild pitch. One out later, the Bruins loaded the bases when senior GiOnna DiSalvatore was hit by a pitch and Harrison walked. Freshman Kellie Fox then grounded out to short, with Schroeder coming home with the Bruins' first run. Junior Dani Yudin followed with a double down the right-field line to plate DiSalvatore and Harrison to put UCLA up 3-1.

Hall was in command in the circle for the Bruins, retiring nine in a row at one point from the first to the fourth innings before a two-out double by Ally Kutz broke the string.

In the third, the Bruins tacked on three more runs. Harrison led off with a single through the right side and Fox crushed the first pitch she saw out to left field for her eighth home run of the season to make it 5-1. Two outs later, Hall walked and came home on a double to right-center off the bat of freshman Talee Snow to increase the lead to 6-1.

UCLA added one more in the fifth. Hall drew a leadoff walk and was pinch-run for by senior Grace Murray, who moved to second on a wild pitch and scored one out later on a double to left-center by Schroeder to make it 7-1.

In the bottom of the sixth, the Bruins loaded the bases on a leadoff double by Harrison off the top of the center-field wall and back-to-back walks to Fox and Yudin. Two outs later, Snow drew a free pass to plate Harrison to make it 8-1 and a wild pitch with Schroeder at the plate allowed Fox to score and end the game with a margin of eight.

The Bruins finish up their three-game series with Oregon State on Sunday at 12 p.m. Gametracker and audio will be available at UCLABruins.com.
