Sports briefs: Aggies baseballers sink St. Mary’s

From page B2 | April 03, 2014 |

Five UC Davis pitchers combined on a five-hitter and the Aggie offense took full advantage of a pair of St. Mary’s errors in a 4-1 win over the Gaels on Wednesday afternoon at Dobbins Stadium.

In fact, all four runs for UCD (13-12) were unearned, two each after throwing errors in the fourth and seventh innings.

Following a two-out walk to Austin March in the fourth, Izaak Silva’s ground ball was thrown wildly by the Gaels’ shortstop, putting two on for Evan Heptig. The junior singled home March and Seth Batty followed with a single that made it 2-0 when Silva crossed the plate.

St. Mary’s scored once in the top of the seventh, but a nice play by Aggie first baseman Nick Lynch limited the damage.

UCD got insurance runs when it loaded the bases on an infield single by Steven Patterson (2-for-3 with a walk) and Spencer Henderson was hit by a pitch to force Batty home. Kevin Barker’s sacrifice fly finished the scoring.

Junior Spencer Koopmans (3-0) started and was credited with the win on the predetermined “staff day,” pitching two shutout innings with a pair of strikeouts, while freshman Zach Stone pitched a perfect ninth to nail down his sixth save of the year.

The Aggies now head to Cal State Fullerton for a weekend series, with Friday’s opening game to be streamed live on ESPN3 beginning 7 p.m.

UCD men’s tennis

Battling through three power outages in a match that was already moved inside because of rain, the Aggies eventually fell to Hawaii, 4-3. The match started on Tuesday but ended early Wednesday morning at the Spare Time Indoor Tennis Center in Gold River.

UCD (12-8, 2-1 Big West) and the Rainbow Warriors (5-10, 2-0) split the six singles contests with Aggie freshman James Wade (at No. 3) and sophomore Brett Bacharach (at No. 4) each claiming straight-set wins. Local freshman Bryce McKelvie had the third victory, outlasting Carter Lam, 3-6, 6-4, 6-1, at No. 6.

With doubles destinedto decide the match, UCD started strong when Bacharach and Adam Luma teamed up for a win at No. 3 to improve to 7-0 on the season. Hawaii, however, captured the next two doubles contests to clinch the victory.

The Aggies host Air Force on Saturday at 11 a.m. in their home finale.
