Trio propels UCLA to 8-0 six-inning victory over Georgia in Los Angeles Super Regional

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Leadoff batter Mia Brady hit two solo home runs, Jordan Woolery added a three-run shot and sixth-seeded UCLA cruised to an 8-0 six-inning victory over No. 11 seed Georgia in the first game of the Los Angeles Super Regional on Thursday night.

UCLA (41-10) can eliminate Georgia (43-18) with a win on Friday.

Kaitlyn Terry, the Pac-12 Conference freshman of the year, ran her record to 21-1 with six shutout innings on the mound. Terry allowed four hits and three walks, striking out five.

Brady homered to start the bottom of the first inning in the Bruins’ wire-to-wire victory. Brady doubled and scored on Jadelyn Alchin’s two-out single in the third to stretch the lead to 2-0.

Brady homered to lead off the fifth and Woolery hit the ball over fence in center field to cap a four-run inning. UCLA walked off with the mercy-rule victory after a two-out, two-run single by Savannah Pola. Brady has 17 home runs this season and 71 for her career.

Lilli Backes (18-7) took the loss for the Bulldogs. She allowed six runs on six hits and two walks, pitching 4 1/3 innings. Shelby Waters relieved, yielding two runs on two hits and a walk, retiring four batters.
