April 28, 2007

Final Stats

LOS ANGELES - Jodie Legaspi knocked two homers and drove in five runs while Megan Langenfeld fanned six batters in the circle as 12th-ranked UCLA defeated 13th-ranked Oregon State on Saturday afternoon at Easton Stadium, 6-3.

UCLA improves to 32-13, 8-6 Pac-10, while OSU falls to 35-17, 7-7 Pac-10.

The Bruins jumped on the board quickly as Lisa Dodd singled with two outs in the the top of the first, and was immediately followed by Legaspi's first homer of the day, this one clearing the right field wall for a 2-0 UCLA lead.

UCLA increased the lead to 3-0 with a lone run in the third inning. Tara Henry opened the frame with a single to left. Krista Colburn grounded to shortstop, but Henry, who was stealing on the pitch, managed to slide in safely at second base to give UCLA two runners aboard. Jaisa Creps sacrificed both runners over and Dodd took advantage of the situation with a one-out, RBI single to right field.

OSU trimmed the lead to 3-1 in the top of the fifth as DeAnn Young opened the inning with a solo homer to left field. However, UCLA answered right back in the bottom of the fifth as Colburn doubled and Creps walked with one out. After a popup by Dodd for the second out, Legaspi lined one just over the left field wall for a three-run homer to increase the UCLA margin to 6-1. The Beavers added a pair of runs in the seventh on a two-run homer by Sherina Galvan for the 6-3 final.

Legaspi ended the day 2-for-3 with her two homers and five RBIs. Henry and Dodd also went 2-for-3 in the Bruin win. Langenfeld went the distance in the circle for UCLA, scattering five hits with one walk and six strikeouts to improve to 10-1 on the season. Ta'Tyana McElroy (13-8) took the loss for OSU, allowing six hits and six runs in 4 2/3 innings.

Prior to Saturday's game, UCLA softball retired the #2 jersey of current Bruin assistant coach Gina Vecchione, who was the first-ever UCLA player to be inducted into the ASA Softball Hall of Fame and was named to the all-tournament team at the first NCAA Women's College World Series in 1982. She is the fourth UCLA softball number to be retired, joining Dot Richardson (#1), Sue Enquist (#6) and Lisa Fernandez (#16).

UCLA and Oregon State wrap up the weekend with a 1 p.m. single game on Sunday afternoon at Easton Stadium.
