Fifth-Ranked Bruins Drop Series Finale to #13 Cal

May 9, 2010

Box Score

LOS ANGELES - Senior Julie Burney hit her team-leading 14th home run of the season, but it was not enough as the fifth-ranked Bruins fell to #13 California 4-2 on Sunday at Easton Stadium.

The Bruins see their 11-game winning streak come to an end and fall to 38-10 overall and 12-6 in Pac-10 play, while the Golden Bears improve to 38-17 and 7-11 in league action.

Senior Megan Langenfeld tossed 5 1/3 innings of relief, allowing just two hits, one run and one walk with one strikeout. Junior Donna Kerr started and fell to 17-6 on the season, giving up three runs, four hits and two walks in 1 2/3 innings with three strikeouts. Offensively, the Bruins had just one hit and drew six walks, leaving four on base.

The Golden Bears jumped out to an early 3-0 lead with a run in the first and two in the second. Valerie Arioto walked to open the game and moved to second on a single to left-center by Shannon Thomas. Two outs later, Frani Echavarria singled up the middle to score Arioto and make it 1-0.

In the second, Taylor Kelly singled to start the inning, and two outs later, a walk to Arioto kept the inning alive for Thomas, who doubled down the right-field line to plate both runners to put Cal ahead 3-0.

The Bruins got on the board in the fifth as Burney hit a 3-2 pitch over the left-field wall to make it 3-1.

In the sixth, UCLA got closer with one more run. Freshman B.B. Bates and junior GiOnna DiSalvatore walked to open the inning and moved up a base on a sacrifice by junior Monica Harrison. After Langenfeld was walked intentionally, sophomore Andrea Harrison lifted a scoring fly ball to the warning track in left that was deep enough to plate Bates to cut the deficit to 3-2.

The Golden Bears tacked on an insurance run in the seventh. Jordan Wallace had a one-out single and was pinch-run for by Shannon Houston, who moved to third on a double to left-center by Elia Reid and scored on a sacrifice fly by Arioto to make it 4-2.

The Bruins got two on in the bottom of the seventh via a pair of walks to Burney and freshman Charlotte Dolan, but Jolene Henderson got the last two batters on fly outs to seal the deal.

UCLA wraps up the regular season next weekend at Arizona. Game times are 7 p.m. on Thursday and Friday and 1 p.m. on Saturday. Gametracker and live audio will be available at UCLABruins.com.
