Ally Carda's pitching, offense sends No. 11 UCLA past top-ranked Oregon

  Ally Carda struck out 14 and hit her fourth homer of the season.

LOS ANGELES -- The 11th-ranked Bruins jumped all over the top-ranked Oregon Ducks on Friday at Easton Stadium, scoring twice in the first, four in the third and two more in the sixth in an 8-1 victory. Ally Carda got the UCLA offense going with a home run in the first, her fourth homer of the season, and tied a career high with 14 strikeouts in the circle.

The Bruins improved to 31-6 overall and 6-1 in Pac-12 play, while the Ducks fell to 30-5 and 8-2 in league action.

Carda (17-3) had at least one strikeout in every inning, fanning the side in the first, two apiece in the next five frames and one in the seventh.

She had 1-2-3 innings in the third and fifth, allowing just one run, two hits and two walks in the complete-game victory.

At the plate, the Bruins recorded eight hits, with Carda, Gabrielle Maurice and Kylee Perez posting two each. Stephany LaRosa hit her sixth bomb of the season.

Oregon avoided the shutout with a solo homer off the bat of Koral Costa in the fourth to make it 6-1, but the Bruins tacked on two more in the sixth.
