Fresh off of the announcement that he is one of 30 nationwide candidates for the 2014 Senior CLASS Award, Steven Patterson hit a walk-off single to send the UC Davis baseball team to a 4-3 victory over Nevada on Tuesday at Dobbins Stadium.

The bases-loaded hit into left field drove home Mason Novak for the final tally as the Aggies (12-9) scored four times in the final four innings.

UCD got its second straight walk-off win and fourth straight victory overall in the final game before Big West Conference play begins this weekend at No. 5 Cal Poly.

Facing Wolf Pack closer Adam Whitt in the 10th, Novak reached on an error then went to third when Seth Batty chopped a double over Nevada’s infield, which was expecting a bunt.

Following an intentional walk to load the bases, Patterson blooped a 1-0 pitch into a vacant left field as the Wolf Pack had pulled in a fifth infielder.

UCD freshman Zach Stone (2-1) threw the final three innings, allowing just one hit and striking out three to earn the win.

Nick Lynch went 3-for-3 with a double for the Aggies, while Adam Young was 2-for-3.

Patterson went 2-for-4 a few days after learning of the honor he is up for. An acronym for Celebrating Loyalty and Achievement for Staying in School, the Senior CLASS Award honors the attributes of NCAA Division I student-athletes in four areas: community, classroom, character and competition.

“I can think of no one that deserves this recognition more than Steven,” said UCD coach Matt Vaughn. “He epitomizes what this CLASS Award stands for, in addition to being a class act on and off the field. Anyone that is considered for this award should be a leader, someone showing the way … that is Steven Patterson.”

The Aggies and the Mustangs open their three-game series on Friday night at 6 p.m. at Baggett Stadium.
