Chew on that Santa Clara; Aggie pitcher hurls shutout

Making his first start of the season, Santa Clara was probably hoping that UC Davis left-hander Scott Chew would be a bit rusty.

No such luck.

The senior gave up only four hits in a complete-game shutout to lead the Aggies over the Broncos, 5-0, on Wednesday at Dobbins Stadium.

UCD has now won seven of its last 10 games to get to 16-27 overall .

Chew needed just 92 pitches to finish off the victory, facing only one batter over the minimum. He held Santa Clara (17-28) hitless until the fourth inning and didn’t give up an extra-base hit until Blake Leyva’s double in the ninth. Chew struck out two, the Aggies turned two double plays behind him and another batter was picked off trying to steal.

With Leyva on second with one out in the ninth inning, Chew struck out Matt Ozanne then forced Justin Viele to fly out to center field to end the game.

UCD scored all the runs Chew would need in the first when Scott Lyman’s ground ball to first base brought Brett Morgan home. Morgan had led off the inning with a hit, then moved to third on a double to right field by Scott Heylman.

Lyman knocked in another Aggie run in the fifth inning when his base hit plated David Popkins — who had doubled with two outs — to make it 2-0.

Eventually, Eric Johnson’s bases-clearing triple with two outs in the bottom of the seventh broke the game open for UCD. In that frame, Ryan Allgrove led off with his third hit of the day, a single to left-center field, then moved to second on a sacrifice bunt by Morgan. Heylman and Lyman each walked to load the bases and set up Johnson’s big hit into right-center field.

Johnson was 2-for-3 with three RBIs, while Allgrove went 3-for-4 and scored a run. Lyman went 1-for-2 with two RBIs and Popkins was 2-for-4 with a run.

Next up for the Aggies is a three-game Big West Conference series at Cal Poly beginning Friday at 6 p.m.
