Aggies set baseball schedule

By
December 1, 2010 |

\n

The UC Davis baseball team is hoping to begin and end the 2011 season with a bang. Only the exciting start, however, is guaranteed.

\n

The Aggies will open the season with a Causeway Cup series against Sacramento State and play games against four teams who advanced to the NCAA Division I Championship, in a 2011

\n

schedule that was announced by UCD head coach Rex Peters on Wednesday.

\n

The set against the Hornets will begin on Feb. 18 with a contest at Dobbins Baseball Complex, head to Hornet Field for a Feb. 19 matchup, then conclude on Feb. 20 back in Davis. Last year, the Aggies won two out of three against Sac State.

\n

Later, 2008 national champion Fresno State will be at Dobbins for a key nonconference series from March 4-6. The Bulldogs finished the 2010 season as the Western Athletic Conference regular-season champions with an overall record of 38-25 and advanced to the championship game of the WAC Tournament. UCD and Fresno State met last season and the Aggies picked up a win in the finale of the series when Scott Lyman pitched a complete game and gave up only two runs. The junior pitcher/outfielder return this season.

\n

The Aggies then participate in the Jack Gifford Memorial Tournament, which is hosted by Santa Clara and San Jose State from March 10-13, and round out the nonconference portion of the schedule with a three-game series against the Spartans beginning March 25.

\n

UCD also faces Pac-10 opponents Stanford and Cal in midweek single-game matchups in 2011, hosting the Cardinal on March 21 and the Golden Bears on May 21. Stanford advanced to the

\n

2010 NCAA Tournament after compiling a 31-25 record as did Cal with a 29-25 overall record.

\n

A three-game home series against Cal State Bakersfield, who claimed a 2-1 series win last season, is scheduled for April 15-17.

\n

Peters focused the nonconference slate on regional and Northern California opponents in an effort to reduce travel costs, while ensuring the Aggies will continue to play at a high level of competition.

\n

“It is still a very competitive schedule,” said Peters. “West coast and California opponents, in particular, are always very strong teams that play at a consistently high level. All of these teams are good baseball programs that we know will field competitive ball clubs.”

\n

UCD\’s Big West Conference schedule begins April 1 when the Aggies host 2010 regular-season champion Cal State Fullerton for three games. The Titans were the No. 1 seed at the Fullerton Regional and were the only Big West team to advance into a Super Regional last year.

\n

The Aggies will travel to Long Beach State from April 8-10 and will also visit UC Irvine, who also advanced to a regional in last year\’s NCAAs, from April 21-23.

\n

Cal State Northridge visits Dobbins Baseball Complex April 29-May 1 before UCD travels to play back-to-back road series at Pacific (May 6-8) and Cal Poly (May 13-15).

\n

The Aggies will close out the 2011 season by hosting consecutive conference series against UC Santa Barbara (May 20-22) and UC Riverside (May 27-29).

\n

The Aggies concluded last year, their third complete season as a member of Division I, with a 26-29 overall record and a 9-15 Big West record. David Popkins was named to the All-Big West first team while Matthew Lewis earned a second team nod. Lyman received honorable mention accolades.
