Ally Carda's relief effort helps No. 10 UCLA rally past CSUN in 10 innings

  Stephany LaRosa tied her season high with three hits, including her team-best fourth triple.

NORTHRIDGE, Calif. -- UCLA used 13 hits, including three with three RBIs by Stephany LaRosa and 8.1 innings of shutout relief with 11 strikeouts by Ally Carda, to record a 6-4, 10-inning victory at Cal State Northridge on Thursday.

The Bruins, in their first extra-inning game of the year, improve to 30-6 overall, while the CSUN Matadors fall to 25-10.

Five different Bruins had multi-hit games, as Carda, Gracie Goulder, Brittany Moeai and Gabrielle Maurice each had a pair of hits.

In the circle, Carda improved to 16-3 with her fifth double-figure strikeout game of the season. She allowed just two hits and two walks, posting three strikeouts in the fourth and two in the eighth and 10th. Carda had 1-2-3 innings in the third, sixth, seventh, ninth and 10th, setting down the last eight of the contest. Johanna Grauer started and allowed four runs, three hits and one walk in 1.2 innings.

Trailing 4-3 in the seventh, the Bruins were down to their last out before rallying. With two outs, LaRosa doubled to right, and was pinch-run for by Robyn Corruth, who scored on a Moeai single up the middle to even the score at four.

After scoreless eighth and ninth innings, the Bruins scored twice in the 10th. Goulder led off by reaching on a throwing error by Maylynn Mitchell at third and Allexis Bennett bunted for a single. Carda then singled up the middle to bring home Goulder to put the Bruins up 5-4. A bunt single for Perez loaded the bases, and one out later, Jelenicki lifted a sacrifice fly to left to score Bennett to put UCLA ahead by two.
