After piling up the runs in nonconference play, the University of Arizona’s bats went silent in the Pac-12 opener Saturday.

No. 6-ranked Arizona managed only two hits in falling 1-0 at No. 3 UCLA.

UA (23-4, 0-1) has scored 215 runs — 9.3 per game — in its wins this season but has managed only five total runs in its losses.

Bruins pitcher Ally Carda (14-1) struck out five in the win, outdueling Arizona’s Estela Piñon (6-3), who gave up five hits and struck out four.

UCLA (24-1, 1-0) scored the game’s only run in the fourth inning when Brittany Moeai singled in Jessica Amaral. Chelsea Suitos and Chelsea Goodacre each had singles for UA’s only hits. The teams meet again at noon today on Pac-12 Arizona.
