SAN JOSE — It was a mixed bag for the UC Davis baseball team at the Jack Gifford Memorial Tournament.

The Aggies got a great pitching performance from Anthony Kupbens to win Friday, before giving up nine runs on Saturday in a loss to host San Jose State.

On Friday, Kupbens allowed only one unearned run on four hits and struck out seven to help UCD snap a seven-game losing streak with a 3-1 win over Milwaukee. But after falling 9-6 to the Spartans, the Aggies are now 3-11 overall.

Against the Panthers, UCD got all the runs it needed in the first four innings. Scott Kalush got the Aggies going with a two-out double, then scored on Seth Batty’s single.

In the next frame, Paul Politi started another two-out rally when he worked a walk, then stole second. He came around to score on an error to give UCD a 2-0 lead

In the fourth, Batty led off by laying down a successful bunt, then moved to second on a sacrifice by Brett Morgan. Scott Heylman’s base hit advanced Batty to third, and the sophomore came around to score on a groundout by David Popkins.

Batty finished 2-for-2 with an RBI, while Morgan was 2-for-4 and Heylman went 2-for-3.

Milwaukee broke up the 3-0 lead with a run in the sixth after back-to-back errors by the Aggies.

That was it for the Panthers, however, as Kupbens (1-2) scattered four hits and walked only one batter. After striking out Tell Taylor to start the eighth inning, Kupbens gave up two hits and was replaced by right-hander Tom Briner.

Briner continued Kupbens’ success on the mound, getting out of the eighth with a strikeout, then holding Milwaukee hitless in the ninth pick up his third save of the year.

On Saturday at Municipal Stadium, Scott Lyman hit a three-run homer that tied the game, 6-6, in the fifth inning, but San Jose State rallied with three runs in the sixth and held off UCD.

The Spartans jumped out to a 3-1 lead, before the Aggies tied the game with two runs in the top of the fourth. Lyman led off with a base hit up the middle, and Politi followed with a double into right field. Eric Johnson reached first base on a fielder’s choice as Lyman was thrown at home, but Politi moved to third on the play. Politi scored on an error and Johnson came home on an RBI hit from Justin Andrade to tie the game at 3-3.

After San Jose State took back a 6-3 lead in the fourth, Lyman hit a three-run shot over the left field wall in the fifth inning to knot things up again. Heylman and Popkins led off with back-to-back singles before Lyman stepped up and cleared the bases with his home run.

The Spartans, however, rallied back with three runs in the sixth inning, all with two outs, and UCD was unable to come back.

Morgan and Lyman each went 2-for-5, Politi was 2-for-4 and Andrade was 2-for-3 with two RBIs.

Scott Walker started the game on the mound for the Aggies but was replaced by Nathan Slater after only one inning. Ryan Lucas (0-2)  relieved Slater in the fourth and picked up the loss.

UCD concludes the Jack Gifford Memorial Tournament on Sunday with a 3 p.m. game against Santa Clara at Stephen Scott Stadium.
