SAN LUIS OBISPO — Seven different UC Davis batters registered hits on the day, but host Cal Poly rallied back from a two-run deficit with a big fourth inning, holding off the visiting Aggies, 5-3, on Saturday at Baggett Stadium.

The Mustangs, ranked fifth in the nation (22-4, 2-0 Big West Conference), also defeated UCD (12-11, 0-2) by the score of 8-0 on Friday.

On Saturday, Cal Poly took a 1-0 advantage on Chris Hoo’s second-inning RBI single, but the Aggies bounced back with three runs in the bottom of the frame.

Senior Steven Patterson tied the game with a two-out single up the middle, bringing home Evan Heptig, and moved into scoring position on a wild pitch. Nick Lynch followed with an RBI of his own, then scored to make it 3-1 when Spencer Henderson blasted a double to right-center field.

The lead was short-lived, however, as Cal Poly rallied back with a three-run fourth to go ahead for good.

Sophomore right-hander Max Cordy (1-1) suffered the loss for UCD, while Adam Young (14 games) and Patterson (11) each extended their streaks of reaching base.

On Friday, Patterson, Young, Seth Batty and Kevin Barker had the only Aggie hits.

UCD men’s golf

Luke Vivolo shot a 2-over 72 in Saturday’s rainy second round of The Goodwin at Stanford, as the Aggies ended the day in 14th place.

UCD shot a 15-over 285 team score as Matt Hansen (6-over for the tournament) and Nicolas Noya (8-over) each fired 73s, Jonny Baxter (9-over) posted a 77 and El Macero’s Ben Corfee (10-over) carded a 79.

Vivolo’s score put him at 3-over and into a tie for 32nd place in the individual standings.

UCD track & field

The Aggies had runners in three of the top six spots in the both the men’s and women’s 200-meter dash as the Bobcat Invitational came to an end Saturday at Texas State.

The UCD women won the 4×100 relay.

In the women’s 200, Ashley Marshall (23.75) was second, followed closely by Cekarri Nixon in third (24.10) and Leslie Reed in sixth (24.32).

Marshall’s time was just off her season-best, while Nixon matched her career-best time which is third on the program’s all-time list. Reed jumped three spots on that list as her personal-best time put her at No. 4.

Marshall, Nixon and Reed then teamed with Kellie Grigg to win the 4×100 in 45.50.

The Aggie men’s 200-meter performance was paced by Sava Boyadjiev (21.51), Kaio Sena (21.57) and Marcus Johnson (21.72) as they finished third through fifth.

Boyadjiev’s time vaults him to No. 4 in program history, while Sena moved into seventh.

In Friday’s action, Nixon was second in the 400-meter dash — where she was the top collegiate finisher — Marshall took third in the 100 and Grigg was third in the 400 hurdles. In addition, UCD’s Karl Moran took his fourth in the men’s 400 hurdles.

UCD women’s tennis

In a day that started with three doubles victories, the Aggies rolled to a 7-0 sweep at Stanislaus State on Friday.

By earning its second consecutive true sweep, UCD improved to 9-6 on the season.

Megan Heneghan and Melissa Kobayakawa kicked things off with an 8-0 doubles victory at No. 1, then Tiffany Pham and Samantha Martino captured their match 8-2. The all-freshman tandem of Kamila Kecki and Claire Meunier completed the Aggie doubles dominance with an 8-1 triumph.

In singles, Heneghan won a 6-0, 6-0 match at No. 1, while Kecki and Frederique Sleiffer also won by that score. Pham took a 6-0, 6-1 decision and the other victories came from Kobayakawa and Nicole Koehly.

UCD men’s tennis

With bad weather bearing down, host Nevada came away with an abbreviated 4-0 victory over the visiting Aggies on Friday at the Caughlin Athletic Club in Reno.

The loss, UCD’s first since March 8, snapped the Aggies’ six-match winning streak, dropping them to 11-7 overall.

The weather concerns forced the two teams to alter the dual match format, with the two teams playing singles first. Once the Wolf Pack got four wins, it clinched the match.

Senior Adam Luba put up the best battle of UCD’s four losses, taking Fernando Sunago to three sets in falling 6-1, 4-6, 6-3.

DHS boys volleyball

The Blue Devils played six matches in a Saturday tournament at UCD and the day was highlighted by a victory over Sheldon.

The event was significant as it gave DHS a chance to get in more court time before Delta Valley Conference play begins Tuesday against Franklin (6 p.m.) at The Cage.

“We enter this tournament to get in as many games as we can before league,” said coach Ron Duer, who added that the Devils were without a couple of key players. “We did well; our win loss record (1-5) doesn’t reflect how much we improved throughout the day.”

Since it was a such a long day, everyone who played had a chance to contribute.

“Every guy got to play a lot which, especially for the new guys, is really a great opportunity,” Duer said. “It was a great chance for guys to get out there on the court and learn their roles, and for the starters to gain cohesion with each other.”
