Gauchos nip Aggies in baseball season finale

From page B1 | May 26, 2013 |

The UC Davis baseball team had the tying run on base in the ninth inning on Senior Day, but a double play ended the threat as the Aggies ended their season with a 5-3 loss to UC Santa Barbara on Saturday at Dobbins Stadium.

The Gaucho victory, combined with an 8-1 win on Friday, gave UCSB (34-23, 17-10) the series sweep.

On Saturday, senior Ben Burke got the start for UCD (19-37, 5-22) but Evan Wolf, normally a starter, took the loss in relief.

Senior third baseman Paul Politi went 1-for-4 and knocked in a run to finish his five-year career with 114 RBIs, good ninth on the all-time Aggie list. He also ranks third in program history in both hits (228) and at-bats (773), No. 4 in games played (197) and No. 5 in doubles (44).

Fellow senior Austin Logan drove in a run and went 1-for-4, while Aggie catcher Spencer Brann was 2-for-4 with an RBI.

The game was tied at 3-3 before UCSB’s Tyler Kuresa’s solo homer in the sixth inning. After the Gauchos tacked on another run in the top of the ninth, UCD had its chance to tie in the bottom half.

Brann and pinch hitter Nick Lynch singled to start the inning before Tino Lipson’s sacrifice bunt put runners at the corners. Cameron Olson followed with hard grounder to second that resulted in a 4-6-3 double play.

On Friday, five different Aggies had hits in the loss. Logan scored UCD’s only run after he doubled in the seventh inning and came home when Mike Mazzara’s ground ball forced a throwing error.

Pitcher Patrick Hennessey joined Burke, Politi, Logan and Mazzara in playing their final games as Aggies.
