SACRAMENTO — After a heartbreaking 5-4, nine-inning loss that lasted nearly three hours, the UC Davis softball team could have mailed in the second game of a Wednesday Causeway Classic doubleheader at Shea Stadium.

But Aggie center fielder Megan Guzman and pitcher Leah Munden had other ideas …

Guzman had three hits, knocked in two runs and scored another, while Munden gave up just one run on four hits to lead UCD to a 4-1 victory in the nightcap. The game was called after five innings due to darkness.

With the results, the Aggies are now 8-10 on the season and Sacramento State is 5-5, with two of the wins coming against UCD.

In their victory, the locals broke a scoreless tie with a two-run rally in the top of the third. Guzman led off with an infield single, then stole second. She came around to score on a pair of errors before Jasmine Lee knocked in Chandler Wagner to make it 2-0.

Those runs were all Munden would need as she gave up a run in the bottom of the inning, then gave up just one meaningless hit in the final two innings. She struck out three batters and lowered her ERA to 2.08.

Guzman knocked in the Aggies’ other two runs in the fifth, plating Amy Nunez and Christina Guidry.

In the first game, Kayla Tyler had three hits and Christa Castello added a pair of RBIs, but Alyssa Vanderdrink’s sacrifice bunt brought Hornet teammate Yesenia Alcala home with the winning run in the bottom of the ninth.
