UC Davis nearly avoided getting swept by Cal Poly in the team’s initial Big West Conference series of the season, taking the Mustangs to 13 innings before losing on Saturday.

The 6-5 loss, combined with a 7-1 defeat against their 21st-ranked hosts on Friday has the Aggies at 10-15 overall.

On Saturday, the Aggies scored twice in the eighth frame and once in the ninth to force extra innings but Chris Hoo’s walkoff single won it for Cal Poly (20-6, 3-0) at Baggett Stadium.

UCD had 13 hits, but committed a season-high five errors while the mistake-free Mustangs pounded out 15 hits. The Aggies had runners in scoring position in both the 11th and 12th innings, but couldn’t bring home the game-winning run.

Aggie closer Max Cordy (4-2) suffered the loss despite allowing just one run on three hits and two walks with five strikeouts in 5 2/3 innings. Cordy’s longest appearance of the season before Saturday was 2 2/3 innings against Nevada on March 12. Conversely, UCD starting pitcher Evan Wolf had gone at least five innings in four straight weekend starts before being lifted Saturday after allowing four runs on eight hits in three innings.

Down 5-2 to start the eighth inning, the Aggie comeback began when third baseman Paul Politi scored on a single by first baseman Nick Lynch and second baseman Steven Patterson scored on a hit from designated hitter Cameron Olson.

Politi then brought UCD all the way back and forced extras when he singled in shortstop Tino Lipson with one out in the top of the ninth.

Cal Poly broke the tie in the 13th inning, when the Aggies’ fifth error of the game helped the Mustangs get two runners on. After an intentional walk loaded the bases, Cordy got pinch hitter Tim Wise to strike out swinging. But Choo connected on the first pitch he saw in the next at-bat for the walkoff single.

For UCD, Seth Batty, Patterson, Lynch and Lipson each had two hits, and Politi addd a pair of RBIs.

On Friday, Cal Poly starting pitcher Matt Imhof allowed just one run in a complete game, scattering seven hits to earn the victory. Imhof (3-0) entered the game with a 1.41 ERA, the second best mark in the Big West among starting pitchers, and lowered that number with his performance.

The Aggies’ lone run came in the sixth inning as Batty led off with one of his two doubles and moved to third on a groundout. Patterson plated Batty with a sacrifice fly.

Batty was 3-for-4 for UCD, which will visit rival Sacramento State on Tuesday before hosting No. 5 Cal State Fullerton at Dobbins Stadium for a three-game set starting Friday afternoon.
