UCLA junior pitcher Donna Kerr fanned the first batter she faced to open the game against North Carolina. And much to the delight of the home crowd, she was far from done.

With two outs and a runner on first in the top of the seventh inning, Kerr ended the game in the same manner that she started it, notching her eighth strikeout of the day to lead the No. 6 Bruins (17-4) to a 1-0 win over the No. 18 Tar Heels (16-4).
