The El Segundo, Calif. native jumped on the first pitch she saw from Nisa Ontiveros in the third inning, sending it the other way and out of Berkeley’s Levine-Fricke field. It was Rich’s 43rd career home run, and the three RBI were enough to break Sarah Beeson’s school record of 201, set in 2002.

Stanford upset the No. 13 Bears 13-5, and Rich finished the game 3-5 with four RBI. She now has 204 in her career.
