#9 Cal Walks Off With Sweep of #8 UCLA

May 1, 2011

Box Score

BERKELEY, Calif. - Senior Donna Kerr struck out seven and junior Katie Schroeder had a pair of hits, but ninth-ranked California broke a 1-1 tie with a bases-loaded, two-out single by Jamia Reid in the bottom of the seventh to finish off a three-game sweep of #8 UCLA on Sunday at Levine-Fricke Field.

The Bruins fall to 31-13 overall and 7-8 in Pac-10 play, while the Golden Bears improve to 34-9 and 10-5 in league action.

UCLA had six hits as a team, with junior Andrea Harrison, sophomore B.B. Bates and freshmen Kellie Fox and Talee Snow also recording singles. Senior Donna Kerr (12-6) struck out seven in 6 2/3 innings, allowing two runs (one earned), eight hits and two walks.

The start of the game featured some missed opportunities by both offenses, as the Bruins left a pair in the first, third and fifth innings and the Golden Bears stranded two in their half of the third while seeing a pair of runners get thrown out trying to steal in the first two frames courtesy of the arm of UCLA freshman catcher Alyssa Tiumalu.

The Bruins broke the scoreless tie with a run in the sixth. Harrison led off with a single to left-center and moved to second on a sacrifice by junior Dani Yudin. Sophomore Devon Lindvall then came in to run for Harrison at second, and one out later, Tiumalu tapped a ball to short, but it went through the legs of Britt Vonk, allowing Lindvall to score the Bruins' first run.

In the bottom of the sixth, Cal tied it up. With one out, Jamia Reid and Vonk had back-to-back, infield singles and Reid scored on a single by Jace Williams that glanced off the glove of a diving Snow up the middle to even the score at one, with Vonk taking third and Williams moving to second. Kerr then uncorked a wild pitch to the backstop, but Tiumalu flipped back to the plate to Kerr, who tagged Vonk for the second out of the inning. Kerr got Frani Echavarria to fly out to left to end the inning.

The Bruins had a chance to re-take the lead in the seventh. With one out, Schroeder was hit by a pitch, and one out later, senior GiOnna DiSalvatore reached on another error by Vonk at short. After both runners moved up a base on a passed ball, Harrison lined a shot right into the glove of Williams at third to end the inning.

In the bottom of the seventh, Ashley Decker reached on a one-out error by Snow at second. Jordan Wallace then walked, and one out later, Elia Reid was hit by a pitch to load the bases. That brought up Jamia Reid, who lined her ninth hit of the weekend up the middle to score Decker to win the game for the Bears.

The Bruins return to Easton Stadium for their final homestand next weekend, as Arizona comes to Westwood. Friday's first pitch is scheduled for 7 p.m. Gametracker and free live audio will be available at UCLABruins.com.
