#5 UCLA 10,  Louisiana-Lafayette 1  UCLA advances to the World Series

The Bruins, visitors in Game 2, scored when Monica Harrison doubled, Langenfeld walked, Harrison advanced on Andrea Harrison’s fly, Yudin singled, driving in the run.  Ragin’ Cajuns 3rd: Murphy singled to 2nd on a 3-2 count and beat the throw, then stole 2nd.  Gaspard, ULL’s most effective hitter in Game 1, fouled out.  Verde reached on an error by DiSalvatore at 2nd, Murphy scored, 1-1.  Megan Langenfeld relieved Kerr.  Bruins 4th: Yudin and Camuso flied out; Burney singled, Shull homered to right field, 3-1.  Cajuns 4th: down in order, two on strikes.  Bruins 5th: DiSalvatore singled, M Harrison popped to 3rd; Langenfeld singled, A Harrison singled to left, loading the bases; Yudin singled to left, DiSalvatore scored 4-1.  Camuso, whose homer in the first game was a factor, jacked a grand slam over the batting cage (about 210ft).  8-1.  Burney struck out.  Shull walked on four pitches. Bates slugged a 2-run, 2-strike home run which put UCLA in run-rule territory 10-1.  DiSalvatore flied out deep to left.
   Now, down a game, the Cajuns, with a line up of lefty slappers, were  nine runs behind, and not structured for major comebacks.  The Bruins had an 11-4 hitting advantage. More, UCLA is very mindful of Missouri upsetting them in last year’s Super Regionals, and showing the intensity of that memory.  Murphy struck out.  Gaspard grounded to 3rd.  Verde grounded out to 3rd.  At Oklahoma City, the Bruins play Florida, and possibly Missouri, their arch-nemesis in a second game.
