SB: Six errors doom Cats in Westwood

WESTWOOD, CA -

A season-most six errors led to 11 unearned UCLA runs as the Bruins swept Arizona for the second consecutive season with a 15-7 (5 innings) victory on Sunday night at Easton Stadium.

The Bruins used a 16-hit attack to plate 15 runs against a trio of Wildcat pitchers, none of whom received much in the way of help from their defense.

Kellie Fox hit a game-tying grand slam against her former team in the fourth, only to see UCLA plate eight runs in the home half of the inning.

Katiyana Mauga also hit a home run in the game, her Pac-12-most-tying 22nd of the season.

UCLA put a four spot up in the bottom of the first thanks to a messy frame from the Wildcat defense. Three walks, two Arizona errors and a passed ball led to four UCLA runs, just two of them earned.

The Bruins added on in the second when Delaney Spaulding hit a solo homer to left.

Mauga got the Cats on the board with a two-run homer to left in the third.

UCLA got the two runs back in the bottom half when an RBI walk followed by a bases-loaded error gave the Bruins a 7-2 edge.

In the fourth, Arizona loaded the bases with nobody out as the Bruins went to the bullpen to get ace Ally Carda. Carda walked in a run before Fox, batting against her former team, hit a game-tying grand slam to left.

UCLA broke the tie with eight unearned runs in the bottom of the fourth.
