Sixth-Ranked Bruins Defeat Simon Fraser

Feb. 17, 2009

Box Score

LOS ANGELES - Sixth-ranked UCLA hit three home runs, including a pair from junior Kaila Shull, as the Bruins defeated Simon Fraser 13-2 in five innings on Tuesday at Easton Stadium.

The Bruins (8-2) scored three in the bottom of the first. With one out, sophomore Katie Schroeder reached on a bunt single and stole second, while sophomore GiOnna DiSalvatore walked to put two on base. Shull followed with her second home run of the season to center to give the Bruins a 3-0 lead.

In the second, UCLA brought eight across to break the game open. The Bruins loaded the bases on walks to freshmen Dani Yudin and Marti Reed and senior Amanda Kamekona. Schroeder followed with a single to left to score Yudin and Reed to make it 5-0. DiSalvatore then went deep, her third homer of the year, to put UCLA ahead 8-0. Shull made it back-to-back jacks for the home team, her third of the year and second of the day, to make it 9-0. After junior Megan Langenfeld was hit by a pitch, freshman Andrea Harrison singled up the middle to put two more on base. One out later, Yudin drove in Langenfeld to make it 10-0. Following the second out of the inning, a Kamekona double to left-center plated Harrison to increase the lead to 11-0.

The Bruins added two more in the third. DiSalvatore singled to short and advanced to second on an error, while Shull was hit by a pitch. One batter later, Harrison doubled to left to bring home both runners and make it 13-0.

Simon Fraser broke the shutout in the fifth, scoring on an RBI single by Kelsey Haberl and a run-scoring single by Chrissy Caviglia. Langenfeld came in to retire the final two batters of the game to close it out.

Junior Whitney Baker started and allowed two runs, six hits and one walk with six strikeouts in 4 1/3 innings to improve to 8-2 on the season. DiSalvatore, Harrison, Schroeder and Shull all had two hits for the Bruins. Shull drove in four, DiSalvatore had three RBI and Harrison and Schroeder both drove in a pair.

Jennifer Van Egdom started for the Clan and allowed four runs, two hits and two walks with one strikeout in one-plus inning. Myriam Poirier relieved her and gave up seven runs, four hits and two walks without retiring a batter, while Kylie Ellis tossed the last three frames and gave up four hits and two runs with two strikeouts. Jessie Harris had two hits for Simon Fraser (6-3), an NAIA school from Burnaby, British Columbia. The game did count towards the Bruins' overall record and stats, as Simon Fraser plays more than 50% of its games against U.S. institutions.

The Bruins head back out on the road this weekend when they travel to the Cathedral City Softball Classic. UCLA faces top-ranked Alabama on Friday at 8 p.m., #15 Massachusetts (5:30 p.m.) and North Carolina State (8 p.m.) on Saturday and Maryland (11 a.m.) and #14 Fresno State (1 p.m.) on Sunday. All games will be played at Big League Dreams Park Fenway Field and will feature Gametracker on UCLABruins.com. In addition, all contests (except Maryland) will have live internet audio, which can be found on the softball schedule page of UCLABruins.com.
