May 23, 2010 |  2:32 pm

Monica Harrison hit a three-run home run in the sixth inning and Samantha Camuso hit a two-run home run earlier in the game for No. 5-seeded UCLA, which defeated Fresno State, 7-2, Sunday to win the NCAA tournament's Los Angeles Regional and advance to a Super Regional next weekend.

UCLA will host Louisiana Lafayette in a best-of-three series. The winner will advance to the College Softball World Series.

Bruins pitcher Aleah Macon struck out 12 and allowed six hits. UCLA (43-11) overcame an early 2-0 deficit on Camuso's second-inning home run.
