Six Aggies emerge as All-Big West baseballers

From page B1 | May 28, 2014 |

With a pair of All-Big West Conference second-teamers — senior second baseman Steven Patterson and junior outfielder Kevin Barker — leading the way, the UC Davis baseball squad had six players honored as the 2014 all-league teams were announced Tuesday.

Four Aggies earned spots on the honorable mention list: senior catcher Spencer Brann, senior infielder Adam Young, junior designated hitter Nick Lynch and freshman closer Zach Stone.

The total of six honorees doubles the number UCD had last season, and the sextet led the Aggies to a 23-31 overall record and a 7-17 Big West mark this spring.

In his second Division I campaign, Patterson made the all-conference second team for the second straight year by batting .326 with 19 runs scored, seven doubles, four triples, and 24 RBIs, despite missing a month due to injury.

One of 30 nationwide candidates in the running for the 2014 Senior CLASS Award, the Stockton native slugged .451 and had an on-base percentage of .436.

Barker, from San Francisco, earned all-league recognition for the first time thanks to a career season that featured a .335 batting average, good for seventh in the Big West, and team bests in hits (63) and stolen bases (7). He was second on the Aggies with 10 doubles.

Also among the conference’s top hitters was Young, who ranked fifth at .337 after not hitting better than .232 in his first three seasons. He led the team with 26 runs scored.

Brann (.324) and Lynch (.308) added key hitting to the UCD lineup, while Stone established himself as of the Big West top closers in just his first season as an Aggie. He was fourth in the league with nine saves, a total that is second on the all-time UCD single-season list.
