Langenfeld Shuts Down Arizona in 3-2 UCLA Win

April 5, 2009

Box Score

LOS ANGELES - Junior Megan Langenfeld tossed 5 2/3 innings of hitless relief, striking out six, as the fifth-ranked Bruins defeated #9 Arizona 3-2 on Sunday at Easton Stadium.

The Bruins improve to 27-8 overall and 2-4 in Pac-10 play, while the Wildcats fall to 32-9 and 4-2 in league action.

Langenfeld (4-0) retired 17 of the 18 batters she faced, issuing only a third-inning walk to Jenae Leles. Following the free pass, she retired the final 13 batters in order. At the plate, sophomore Katie Schroeder went 2-for-3 with two runs batted in and sophomore Monica Harrison drove in what proved to be the game-winning run on an RBI single in the third.

Arizona scored a run in both the first and second innings. With two outs, Leles homered to left to make it 1-0. In the second, Lini Koria reached second on a one-out error and moved to third on a wild pitch. Kristen Arriola then walked and stole second, and when the throw down went into center, Koria came in to make it 2-0.

The Bruins rallied with two outs in the second to tie the game at two. Junior Julie Burney doubled to center and freshman Dani Yudin reached on an infield single. After Yudin moved to second on a passed ball, sophomore Amy Crawford was hit by a pitch to load the bases. Schroeder then came through in the clutch, singling up the middle to plate Burney and sophomore pinch-runner Grace Murray to tie the game.

In the bottom of the third, the Bruins again rallied with two outs to take the lead. Senior Amanda Kamekona singled to left-center and moved to second on a sacrifice bunt by Langenfeld. After Shull moved Kamekona to third on a groundout, Harrison singled to center to bring in the Bruins' third run.

Langenfeld took care of the rest in the circle, striking out two in the second and one each in the third, fourth, fifth and seventh. Sophomore Donna Kerr started for the Bruins and gave up two runs (one earned), one hit and one walk in 1 1/3 innings.

Jennifer Martinez (7-3) took the loss for Arizona, giving up three runs and seven hits with three strikeouts. Sarah Akamine tossed two scoreless innings, fanning two.

The Bruins are back in action on Friday when they host Washington at 1 p.m. at Easton Stadium. Gametracker and live audio will be available at UCLABruins.com.
