Junior right-hander Spencer Koopmans scattered just four hits over six shutout innings and the UC Davis bats came alive Saturday afternoon, helping the Aggies blast Cal State Northridge, 11-0, in Game 2 of a Big West Conference series at Matador Field.

The 11 runs tied a season high for the Aggies (18-24, 4-13), who snapped a four-game losing streak a day after falling 12-6 to the Matadors (17-29, 5-9) in the series opener.

Koopmans (4-1), who threw just 66 pitches on the day, and Raul Jacobson combined on the six-hit shutout, the latter earning his first save of the season.

UCD scored all nine of its runs after the fourth inning. Adam Young had three RBIs and Tanner Bily, Nick Lynch, Izaac Silva and Evan Heptig each finished with two hits on the day.

With their hits, Bily (11 games) and Kevin Barker (10) kept their lengthy hitting streaks alive and Barker reached base for the 20th consecutive outing.

On Friday, the Aggies hit seven doubles, one of them by John Williams, who had two hits and two RBIs in the loss.

The two teams complete the series on Sunday at 1 p.m.

UCD track

The Aggie men won all 10 events on the track and UCD’s men and women each captured 14 of 18 events overall to sweep rival Sacramento State in the annual Causeway Classic Track and Field Dual at Hughes Stadium.

The Aggie men — fueled by a school-record 4×100 relay (40.27) — posted a 111-81 victory while the women, who also posted a UCD benchmark in the 4×100 (45.02) — were 114-78 winners.

On the track, Kaio Sena (100), Sava Boyadjiev (200), Marcus Johnson (400), Alex Grigoriev (800), Karl Moran (110HH, 400H) and DHS graduates Trevor Halsted (1,500) and Grayson Hough (3,000) all won their events.

Maurice Spikes (high jump), Marc Toney (pole vault), Basil Okoroike (triple jump) and Matthew Bender (discus) added wins for UCD in the field events.

The UCD women had three double winners — Ashley Marshall (100, 200), Praise Adesida (shot put, discus) and Catherine Li (triple jump, long jump) — while single victories were posted by Shanie Landen (800), Raquel Lambdin (1,500), Erika Barr (3,000), Kellie Grigg (100H), Katie Barber (high jump), Holly Tokar (pole vault) and Veronica Smart (hammer throw).

DHS girls soccer

After going 15-3-3 overall and 7-1-2 to take second place in the Delta Valley Conference, the Blue Devils earned a No. 9 seed in the Sac-Joaquin Section Tournament, which begins on Tuesday.

DHS, which made it to the section championship game last season and lost in a shootout, opens with a 3:30 p.m. contest at No. 8 at McClatchy. The two teams met earlier this season, with the Lions winning 2-1.

The winner of Tuesday’s game likely will travel to play top-seeded Granite Bay on Thursday. DVC champion Franklin is the No. 2 seed.

DHS girls volleyball

Interested athletes who will be in ninth through 12th grades this fall are invited to a Blue Devil girls volleyball player and parent information night set for 6 p.m. Friday at The Cage, the south gym at Davis High School.

At the meeting, families will learn about the summer practice schedule, conditioning, camps and fall tryouts.

For more information, contact coach Julie Crawford at jcrawford@djusd.net.

Women’s cycling fundraiser

The event, which runs from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m., will feature a screening of Bertine’s documentary “Half the Road,” about the passion, pitfalls and power of women’s professional cycling, along with a Q & A, silent auction and reception.
