Aggies play tough softball against ranked opponents

By From page B1 | February 18, 2014

LOS ANGELES — UC Davis softball coach Karen Yoder has said often that she likes to put her team through a tough early-season schedule — and the Aggies are feeling the brunt.

UCD scratched a run across in the sixth inning on Sunday, but fell to No. 12/13 UCLA, 6-1, in the finale of the Stacy Winsburg Memorial Tournament at Easton Field.

The event hosts improved to 10-0 by scoring four times in the fourth inning (on a grand slam) to build a lead that was insurmountable for the Aggies (4-8).

It doesn’t get any easier Tuesday, as UCD will entertain No. 15/17 Stanford at 1:30 p.m. However, the Aggies have defeated the Cardinal at La Rue Field each of the past two years.

On Sunday, UCD second baseman Chandler Wagner worked a bases-loaded walk to force in pinch runner Cat Guidry with the Aggies’ lone run. Guidry entered after Kelly Zboralske earned a walk of her own following an eight-pitch at-bat.

Another UCD highlight came in the second inning, when catcher Lauryn Saunders nailed a runner trying to sneak over to third base.
