16th-Ranked Bruins Drop Weekend Finale to #7 Washington

April 15, 2012

Box Score | UCLA Softball on Twitter

SEATTLE, Wash. - Senior Dani Yudin drove in a pair of runs on a two-out single in the sixth inning, but the 16th-ranked Bruins lost 5-2 to #7 Washington on Sunday at Husky Softball Stadium.

The Bruins fall to 29-12 overall and 6-6 in Pac-12 play, while the Huskies improve to 35-9 and 6-8 in league action.

UCLA recorded just four hits, with seniors Andrea Harrison and Katie Schroeder and freshman Stephany LaRosa posting the other singles. Sophomore Jessica Hall picked up the loss to fall to 14-7, striking out two and allowing five runs, five hits and one walk in five innings. Freshman Ally Carda started and fanned two in one-plus inning, giving up a hit and a walk.

It was a scoreless affair for the first 4 1/2 innings, although both teams had chances early. In the first, the Bruins had second and first with nobody out but could not score. After leaving a runner at third in the first, the Huskies stranded the bases loaded in the second. Hall retired nine of the first 10 batters she faced.

In the bottom of the fifth, the Huskies struck for five runs. Hooch Fagaly was hit by a pitch to start the inning and was pinch-run for by Marki Creger-Zier, who stole second. Jerrin Fa'asua then laid down a sacrifice to try and move Creger-Zier over to third, but it was a good enough bunt in front of the circle to allow her to reach base to put runners at the corners. After Fa'asua stole second, Kimi Pohlman slapped a hit through the left side, as Creger-Zier scored, Fa'asua moved to third and Pohlman alertly advanced to second for a double. A walk to Victoria Hayward loaded the bases and Niki Williams singled to right to plate Fa'asua to make it 2-0. Inglesby then cleared the bases with a double to left-center to make it 5-0.

The Bruins had thoughts of duplicating their top of the sixth comeback from Friday night on Sunday afternoon. Schroeder led off with a walk, LaRosa singled to left and both runners moved up on a wild pitch. Harrison then had an excuse-me swing that dribbled to first and she was able to beat out the grounder to load the bases. But Inglesby momentarily killed the rally when she induced junior B.B. Bates into a comebacker double play, as Schroeder was retired at home. Yudin followed with a flare single to right-center, plating LaRosa and Harrison to cut the deficit to 5-2. However, Yudin was thrown out to end the inning trying to advance to second. UCLA would be retired in order in the seventh.

The Bruins begin a four-game homestand on Wednesday against Cal State Northridge at 2 p.m. Gametracker and free audio will be available at UCLABruins.com, as well as live updates at twitter.com/uclasoftball.
