Feb. 27, 2010

Box Score

CATHEDRAL CITY, Calif. - Senior Megan Langenfeld went 3-for-3 with three RBI, while freshman Charlotte Dolan had two hits, three RBI and a home run in her third straight game, as the third-ranked Bruins outlasted #22 Northwestern 10-5 in eight innings on Saturday at the Cathedral City Classic.

UCLA improves to 14-2 with the win, while Northwestern falls to 6-8.

Junior GiOnna DiSalvatore also had two hits for the Bruins, who had 11 as a team. Langenfeld (3-1) earned the win in the circle, striking out six and giving up five runs (three earned), 10 hits and three walks in eight innings.

The Bruins scored the game's first run in the top of the second. Dolan led off the inning with a double down the left-field line and was pinch-run for by junior Grace Murray, who then moved to third on a wild pitch. Two outs later, junior Monica Harrison singled to the left side to plate Murray to make it 1-0.

UCLA added another run in the third. DiSalvatore singled up the middle to open the inning, moved to second on a wild pitch and scored on a double to left-center by Langenfeld to put the Bruins up 2-0.

The Wildcats tied it with two unearned runs in the bottom of the fourth. Adrienne Monka singled to left to start the inning and was pinch-run for by Aly Euler. After Michelle Batts singled up the middle, Emily Haug reached on an error to load the bases. The Bruins got the next two outs, but Jordan Wheeler singled to left-center to bring home Euler and pinch-runner Lauren Ackerman to tie the score at two.

In the fifth, UCLA broke the tie with three runs thanks to the bat of Dolan. Sophomore Andrea Harrison led off the inning with a single and moved to second one out later after an illegal pitch. Junior Amy Crawford then came in to run for Harrison and the Bruins got another runner on base when Langenfeld walked. One out later, Dolan hit a 3-2 pitch down the left-field line for her third home run of the weekend and season to make it 5-2.

The Wildcats rallied again with a three-run homer of their own in the bottom of the fifth. Emily Allard led off with a bunt single, and two outs later, Batts walked. Haug then hit a home run to right to even the game at five.

Using the international tiebreaker to start the top of the eighth, the Bruins had senior Kaila Shull open the inning at second. She would be sacrificed to third by Monica Harrison, and one out later, the Bruins had runners at the corners following a 12-pitch walk to Andrea Harrison. DiSalvatore then singled up the middle to score Shull to make it 6-5. After Andrea Harrison and DiSalvatore each moved up a base on a passed ball, Langenfeld singled up the middle to plate both runners and put the Bruins up 8-5. Langenfeld then advanced to second on a passed ball and sophomore Samantha Camuso drove her in with a single up the middle to make it 9-5. Camuso advanced to second on the throw home and scored the Bruins' 10th run when Allard dropped a pop up at short with Dolan at the plate.

Langenfeld set down the Wildcats 1-2-3 in the bottom of the 10th.

The Bruins conclude their weekend in the desert on Sunday against #16 Ohio State at 10:30 a.m. Gametracker will be available at UCLABruins.com.
