Fox Homers in Setback to #11 Arizona

May 6, 2011

Box Score

LOS ANGELES - Freshman Kellie Fox hit a first-inning home run to give the 12th-ranked Bruins an early lead, but #11 Arizona scored three in the third and two in the fourth to post a 5-1 victory on Friday at Easton Stadium.

The Bruins fall to 31-14 overall and 7-9 in Pac-10 play, while the Wildcats improve to 38-13 and 9-7 in league action.

UCLA had just three hits as a team, with junior Katie Schroeder posting a double and sophomore B.B. Bates recording a single. Senior Donna Kerr (12-7) started and struck out four in 3 2/3 innings, allowing five runs (four earned), four hits and six walks. Freshman Jessica Hall tossed 3 1/3 innings of scoreless relief, striking out one and giving up two walks and a hit.

The Bruins got on the board with one swing of the bat in the bottom of the first. With one out, Fox hit her 11th home run of the season to left to put UCLA up 1-0. The 11 homers are the second most in a single season for a freshman at UCLA.

The Wildcats came back with a homer in the top of the third to take the lead. Brittany Lastrapes led off with a single to right, Lauren Schutzler reached on an error by Fox at short and Brigette Del Ponte homered to left to put Arizona on top 3-1.

In the fourth, Arizona scored twice without the benefit of a hit. With one out, the Wildcats loaded the bases on back-to-back walks to Lastrapes and Schutzler and a hit by pitch of Del Ponte. Stacie Chambers then tapped a ball back to the circle to Kerr, who went home to force Lastrapes for the second out. But another free pass to Kristen Arriola brought in Schutzler to make it 4-1. Hall then entered the game, but she walked Karissa Buchanan, allowing Del Ponte to score the Wildcats' fifth run.

The Bruins had just two base runners in the final four innings.

UCLA and Arizona continue its three-game series on Saturday at 6 p.m. Gametracker and free audio will be available at UCLABruins.com.
