Fifth-Ranked Bruins Drop 5-0 Decision to #4 Arizona State

April 3, 2009

Box Score

LOS ANGELES - Arizona State's Hillary Bach struck out five and held the fifth-ranked Bruins off the scoreboard for the first time this season in a 5-0 victory on Friday at Easton Stadium. Sophomore Monica Harrison had two of UCLA's seven hits.

The Bruins fall to 26-7 overall and 1-3 in Pac-10 play, while the fourth-ranked Sun Devils improve to 32-5 and 4-0 in league action.

Arizona State jumped out to a 1-0 lead on one swing of the bat in the second as Kaylyn Castillo knocked the first pitch of the inning out to left for her third home run of the season.

In the third, the Sun Devils broke it open with four more runs. Kaitlin Cochran led off with her 16th home run of the year, Lesley Rogers doubled to left and Katelyn Boyd walked. A single by Castillo to center brought in Rogers to make it 3-0. After a groundout to short by Krista Donnenwirth moved Boyd and Castillo up a base, Ashley Muenz tapped a ball to third, but junior Julie Burney came home to retire Boyd as junior Kaila Shull applied the tag. Katie Crabb kept the rally going though with two outs, blooping a single to left to plate Castillo, while a single to left-center by Caylyn Carlson brought in Muenz to make it 5-0.

The Bruins got two runners on base in the first, fourth and seventh, but ended up leaving them on base each time, stranding seven for the contest.

Sophomore Donna Kerr (15-6) started for the Bruins and allowed four runs, seven hits and three walks in six innings with six strikeouts. Junior Megan Langenfeld tossed one inning, giving up a run and three hits.

Bach walked just one in improving to 18-1 in the circle for the Sun Devils. Castillo, Cochran and Crabb each had two hits.

The Bruins host Arizona on Saturday at 3 p.m. at Easton Stadium. Gametracker and live audio will be available at UCLABruins.com. In addition, it will be High School Team Day on Saturday with a sellout crowd expected. All seating is general admission and fans are advised to show up early to reserve their seats.
