CATHEDRAL CITY, Calif. - Senior Alyssa Tiumalu, junior Tara Mueller and sophomore Mysha Sataraka each had two-hit games, while junior Ally Carda struck out seven for her ninth victory of the season, as the eighth-ranked Bruins defeated #11 Nebraska 6-2 on Sunday at the Mary Nutter Collegiate Classic.

UCLA (15-0) faces New Mexico at 2 p.m. in the final game of the weekend.

The Bruins had 10 hits as a team, with seven different players recording at least one. Sataraka and Tiumalu each drove in a pair.

Carda struck out seven in six innings, allowing two runs (her first earned runs given up in 43 1/3 innings), four hits and one walk. She had 1-2-3 innings in the first, third, fifth and seventh, striking out three in the fourth and one in every other frame but the sixth. Sophomore Paige McDuffee finished up the victory with a 1-2-3 seventh inning, striking out one. 

The Bruins scored without the benefit of a hit in the first inning. Carda was hit by the first pitch of the frame and moved to second on a sacrifice by freshman Delaney Spaulding. One out later, Sataraka grounded a ball to second, but Hailey Decker threw wide to first. Carda, with two outs, never stopped running after rounding third and scored to put the Bruins up 1-0.

UCLA added three in the fourth. Junior Stephany LaRosa singled up the middle and was pinch-run for by junior Jessica Amaral, who moved to second on a Sataraka single up the middle. A sacrifice bunt by sophomore Brittany Moeai advanced both runners, and one out later, Tiumalu tripled over the left fielder's head to score Amaral and Sataraka to make it 3-0. Junior Gracie Goulder followed with a single through the right side to drive in Tiumalu with the Bruins' fourth run.

The Bruins tacked on two more in the fifth. Carda was again hit by a pitch, and was pinch-run for by sophomore Kodi Lavrusky, who advanced to third on a double to right-center by Spaulding, who extended her hitting streak to 13 games. One out later, Sataraka singled to center to plate Lavrusky and Spaulding to make it 6-0.

Nebraska (8-5) got on the board with one swing in the top of the sixth. Alicia Armstrong led off with an infield single to short and scored on a homer to right by Kiki Stokes to make it 6-2.
