Box Score

SACRAMENTO, Calif. - Sophomore Julie Meyer hit a three-run home run and senior Haley Woods hit a two-run shot in No. 6/7 California's 5-0 win over Illinois, Saturday at the Capital Classic. The Golden Bears (23-2) followed with a 1-0 victory over Iowa on day two of the three-day tournament.

In the second inning against the Illini, Meyer drove in sophomore Katie Vickers and junior Alex Sutton on her home run. Sutton reached base on a fielder's choice, and Vickers, who went 2-for-2 in the game, reached base after hitting a single to right field.

In the third, Woods drove in freshman Morgan Siegel on a two-run shot. Siegel reached base after being hit by a pitch.

Senior Kristina Thorson improved to 15-2 with the win, giving up just two hits while striking out 14.

Against Iowa, Cal scored the game's only run in the third inning. Siegel got the Bears going with a single up the middle. Woods followed with a double to right center, sending Siegel home.

Freshman Lauren Frankiewicz earned the win, holding the Hawkeyes to just one hit in 4.1 innings. Thorson pitched the final 2.2 innings and struck out six of the nine batters she faced.

Cal tallied seven hits in the game, led by Siegel (3-for-4) and senior Lindsay James (2-for-4).

The Bears will face Long Island Sunday (11 a.m.), followed by a contest against Jacksonville at 1 p.m. The Jacksonville game will not be a part of the tournament but will count towards Cal's overall record.
