Speed Kills In #9 California's 7-2 Victory Over #8 UCLA

April 29, 2011

Box Score

BERKELEY, Calif. - Junior Andrea Harrison went 3-for-3 at the plate with two singles and a double, but the difference maker on Friday was the speed of California, which had five infield hits, as the ninth-ranked Golden Bears knocked off the eighth-ranked Bruins 7-2 at Levine-Fricke Field.

The Bruins fall to 31-11 overall and 7-6 in Pac-10 play, while the Golden Bears improve to 32-9 and 8-5 in league action.

Senior GiOnna DiSalvatore, juniors Samantha Camuso and Dani Yudin and freshman Kellie Fox also had hits, as the Bruins had seven as a team. Senior Donna Kerr (12-5) tossed 5 1/3 innings, striking out eight and allowing seven runs (six earned), 10 hits and two walks. Sophomore Destiny Rodino recorded the final two outs of the sixth, giving up one hit.

After stranding a pair in the bottom of the first, Cal got on the board with three in the second. The Golden Bears were retired on the first two batters of the inning, but Jordan Wallace was hit by a pitch and moved to second on a single up the middle by Elia Reid. Jamia Reid then tapped a ball to second. Freshman Talee Snow tried to swipe tag Elia Reid going by but missed, which allowed Jamia Reid to reach on the fielder's choice to load the bases. Britt Vonk then beat out a grounder to the 3-4 hole for an RBI single that scored Wallace to make it 1-0. Jace Williams followed with a single up the middle to plate both Reid sisters to increase the margin to 3-0.

The Bruins had a great chance in the fifth but came away empty. Harrison led off with a double to left-center and Yudin followed with a single to center. But Cal pitcher Jolene Henderson, who struck out 10, retired the next three Bruins to end the threat.

Cal broke it open with four in the sixth, loading the bases on a Wallace walk and back-to-back infield singles by the Reid sisters. Vonk then grounded into a fielder's choice to short, with Fox coming home to force Wallace at the plate. But Williams came through again with another single up the middle to score the Reid sisters to make it 5-0. A Frani Echavarria single up the middle plated Vonk with the Bears' sixth run. Lindsey Ziegenhirt followed by grounding one to third, but it went between the legs of DiSalvatore, allowing Williams to make it 7-0.

The Bruins would get on the board with a pair in the seventh. DiSalvatore led off with a single to right-center and Harrison followed with a single to left. Both runners moved up a base on a groundout to short by Yudin and freshman Alyssa Tiumalu broke the shutout, lifting a scoring fly ball to center to bring in DiSalvatore to make it 7-1. Camuso followed with a double to left-center to plate Harrison with the Bruins' second run.

UCLA and Cal continues its three-game series on Saturday at 1 p.m. Gametracker and live audio will be available at UCLABruins.com.
