PALO ALTO -- Cal State Bakersfield sophomore pitcher Kelsie Monroe threw a complete-game shutout in a 2-0 win over UC Davis on Saturday, giving CSUB's first softball win of the season at the Stanford Invitational.
Monroe tossed a three-hitter with six strikeouts for CSUB (1-6), which earlier lost 12-0 to 22nd-ranked Stanford.
Madison Bundy drove in both CSUB runs. Shay Fryer tripled in the fourth and scored on Bundy's sacrifice fly.
An error, sacrifice and Bundy's RBI single gave CSUB an insurance run in the sixth. Stanford rolled over CSUB earlier Saturday by scoring six runs in the first and adding six in the fourth.

VALENCIA -- The Renegades managed just three hits, dropping their Western State Conference South opener at College of the Canyons, 5-1.
BC (7-2) scored its run in the first inning when Erik Williams walked, stole second and scored on a single by Blayne Ontiveros against Cougars starter Steve Farnworth (2-0).
Despite the low hit total, the 'Gades had baserunners in all but one inning, but failed to capitalize on six walks and two hit batters.
Cole Hallum was 2-for-3 with a walk and a stolen base to provide one of the few bright spots for Bakersfield, along with Sean Deweese, who worked two scoreless innings in relief for BC.
The teams are scheduled to play again at 2 p.m. Tuesday, this time at Gerry Collis Field.
Monterey Peninsula completed a three-game series sweep over host Taft College by sweeping a doubheleader, winning 9-7 and 10-6. Taft (3-6-1) came into the series struggling offensively, coach Vince Maiocco said.
"Then we scored 21 runs in these three games," he said. "If you told me we'd do that before the series, I'd thought we had a great chance at a sweep because we had been pitching well. But our pitching and defense struggled this weekend."
Travis Tessandori went 5-for-9 in the doubleheader and Luis Trinidad went 4-for-9 for Taft. Monterey is 6-2. Taft opens Central Valley Conference play Tuesday at College of the Sequoias.
