#7 UCLA Earns Program's 1,500th Victory With 4-2 Win Over Oregon State

April 17, 2010

Box Score

CORVALLIS, Ore. - Senior Julie Burney and junior GiOnna DiSalvatore each hit two-run homers in a four-run fourth inning, which was plenty of support for junior Whitney Baker, who tossed five shutout frames, as the seventh-ranked Bruins posted the program's 1,500th victory with a 4-2 win over Oregon State on Saturday at the OSU Softball Complex.

The Bruins improve to 29-9 overall and 3-5 in Pac-10 play, while the Beavers fall to 21-20 and 2-6 in league action.

Baker (1-1) struck out four and gave up just two hits and a walk in her five shutout innings. The junior retired the last seven batters she faced, as well as 13 of the last 14. Freshman Destiny Rodino threw the last two innings, allowing two runs, two hits and one walk with three strikeouts. She fanned a pair in the seventh.

Freshman B.B. Bates had two of the Bruins' seven hits, as six different players had hits.

The Bruins scored the only runs they would need in the fourth. Sophomore Dani Yudin led off with a double to right-center and came home on Burney's team-leading 11th homer of the season to left to make it 2-0. Two outs later, Bates singled to left and DiSalvatore belted her fourth home run of the year to right to put the Bruins on top 4-0.

Oregon State cut the deficit in half with two in the bottom of the seventh. Paige Hall walked and Audrey Roderfeld doubled to center and were pinch-run for respectively by Nicole Luchanski and Kilee Lippincott. Rodino then retired Mary Claire Brenner on a strikeout, but Ally Kutz followed with a groundout to third to plate Luchanski to end the shutout. A single to right by Maggie Doremus scored Lippincott to make it 4-2, but Rodino fanned Tarah Black to end the game.

The Bruins wrap up their three-game series at Oregon State on Sunday at 11 a.m. Gametracker and live audio will be available at UCLABruins.com.
