Huge sixth inning helps UCD nip Nevada on the diamond

RENO, Nev. — Tino Lipson hit a two-run single to cap a big sixth inning for the UC Davis baseball team on Tuesday as it rallied from a four-run deficit to defeat Nevada, 10-7, in a nonconference game at chilly Peccole Park.

The Aggies (12-22) smacked 13 hits as they improved to 4-1 in their last five midweek games, including come-from-behind wins over Stanford and St. Mary’s.

UCD reliever Robert Parucha (2-1) picked up the win, giving up two runs in two innings before the rest of the Aggie bullpen kept the Wolf Pack (16-18) off the board in the final four frames. Redshirt freshman closer Max Cordy tossed scoreless eighth and ninth innings to earn his fifth save of the season.

Red-hot UCD second baseman Steve Patterson, who had seven hits in three games at Long Beach State last weekend, had two more Tuesday, drove in a pair of runs and scored twice. Center fielder Seth Batty and shortstop Adam Young also had two hits each for the Aggies.

Brooks Klein and Austin Byler each had three hits and a home run to lead Nevada.

With chilly temperatures and snow flurries at first pitch, neither offense was cooled.

The Wolf Pack took an early 2-0 lead in the bottom of the first, but UCD battled back and took a short-lived advantage in the third inning.

Young drove in Tanner Bily on a single in the second for the Aggies’ first run, then Mike Mazzara hit an RBI single up the middle to score Patterson in the third inning. Izaak Silva followed with a two-out double to bring home Mazzara.

Nevada, however, came roaring back and led 7-3 until UCD poured it on in the sixth …

Young started off the frame with a single and moved to second on a John Williams single. Batty drew a four-pitch walk to load the bases and Paul Politi followed with another walk to force in a run. Next, Patterson doubled to right to drive in Batty and Williams.

Even a Wolf Pack pitching change couldn’t slow down the Aggies as Austin Logan drove in the game-tying run on a fielder’s choice grounder with Politi beating out the throw home. A double play ball gave Nevada its first two outs of the inning but, after Bily walked, pinch hitter Lipson smacked a two-run single to left to give UCD a 9-7 lead.

The Aggies tacked on an insurance run in the top of the ninth when Batty hit a two-out single to right to drive in Spencer Brann, who had singled.

UCD gets back to Big West Conference play this weekend, with second-place UC Riverside visits Dobbins Stadium for a three-game series. The two teams play at 2:30 p.m. on Friday then match up in a Picnic Day contest at 1 p.m.
