Box Score

Berkeley - Junior Julie Meyer's three-run home run in the second inning proved to be the difference as the 22nd-ranked California Golden Bears held on to defeat Loyola-Chicago, 3-2, at Levine-Fricke Field on Wednesday.

Cal (14-9) travels to Sunnyvale for the NIST hosted by San Jose State, Mar. 9-11. Cal faces Iowa, UConn, Eastern Illinois, Iowa State, and Northern Iowa in the three-day affair.

Freshman Marissa Drewrey collected her sixth victory in the circle after allowing two runs on three hits with three strikeouts. Freshman Brittany LaRosa collected her first save of the season after relieving Drewrey in the fifth. LaRosa allowed just one hit with two strikeouts.

Cal unlocked the scoreless tie in the second inning, courtesy of Meyer's home run. Freshman Bernice Masaniai drew a lead-off walk and moved to second base after senior Alex Sutton reached safely on a fielder's choice. After sophomore Gina Leomiti placed a sacrifice bunt to move Masaniai and Sutton to third and second respectively, Meyer crushed Amy Solava's offering over the left field wall to give the Bears a 3-0 lead.

The score remained 3-0 until the fourth inning when the Ramblers staged a comeback with two runs. Stephanie Cihlar, who led off the inning with a bunt single, scored from third base on a passed ball. Ellen Kresl then scored after Raven Gengler grounded out to Vernae Sevilla.

Loyola-Chicago had one last threat in the top of the seventh when Gengler led off with a single thru the left side. LaRosa however retired the next three batters to preserve the Cal victory.
