Nick Lynch homered twice and Cameron Olson added another to go along with three RBIs as the UC Davis offense continued to roll, banging out a season-high 15 hits on Saturday en route to a 10-5 baseball victory over Kansas State at the Gael Invitational hosted.

Behind the red-hot offense, including four homers by Lynch in the three games, the Aggies (3-4) have gone 2-1 at the event, which is hosted by St. Mary’s.

Lynch finished 2-for-5 on Saturday and was one of six UCD players with multiple hits on the day. Olson finished 3-for-5, including his first home run of the season, in support of freshman left-hander Orlando Razo (1-0), who earned his first collegiate victory by pitching 3 2/3 innings of shutout relief, scattering just three hits and striking out two.

The Aggies plated five runs in the sixth to turn a 5-4 deficit into a 9-5 lead. In the decisive frame, RBIs came on Olson’s homer, a triple by Spencer Henderson, a double from Tino Lipson and Steven Patterson’s single. Patterson had a run-scoring double earlier in the contest.

On Friday, UCD took advantage of four Portland errors to score four unearned runs in an 8-7 decision that made a winner out of junior Spencer Koopmans.

Using Lynch’s two-run homer, among other offensive firepower, the Aggies jumped out to a 7-1 lead then held off the Pilots with Craig Lanza shutting the door for his second save of the season.

UCD junior Izaak Silva went 3-for-4 and Lynch had two safeties of his own as part of an 11-hit attack.

UCD softball

Early scoring in each game wasn’t enough for the Aggies as they dropped three games on Friday and Saturday at the Mary Nutter Classic in Cathedral City.

UCD (4-12) lost two close ones on Friday, falling to Syracuse, 7-5, and Notre Dame, 12-11, before going down in defeat, 11-4, against UNLV on Saturday.

In that contest, the Rebels (4-7) got two runs in the second, but the Aggies came back to take the lead with three tallies an inning later.

Christa Castello got the rally started when she was hit by a pitch and later scored on a Lauryn Saunders single. Later in the inning, Jasmine Lee knocked in two more UCD runs with her single.

The one-run advantage didn’t last long, however, as UNLV pushed six runs across in the fourth inning to take an 8-3 lead.

Janelle Gusiff got one back for the Aggies in the bottom of the frame, scoring on an Amy Nunez sac fly, but that was as close as they would come.

UCD women’s water polo

Senior center Hannah Curran scored three goals in the nightcap but it wasn’t enough as the 14th-ranked Aggies fell to No. 16 UC Santa Barbara, 11-9, after earlier losing to No. 5 UC Irvine, 8-5, on Saturday at the UCI Invitational.

Curran finished the day with four total goals, having scored one in the opener with the Anteaters. Junior defender Elsie Fullerton, a Davis High graduate, added two goals against UCSB, while sophomore center Allyson Hansen and junior attacker Keelia Houston, another former Blue Devil, had one goal in each contest.

UCD (8-9) found itself in early deficits in each contest, slipping into a 5-1 hole against UCI and a 4-1 corner in the nightcap with the Gauchos.

Against UCSB, the Aggies fought back to take an 8-7 lead on Hansen’s goal early in the fourth period. But the Gauchos’ Jessie Porter quickly tallied two of her game-high seven goals to put her team ahead.

UCD women’s tennis

The Aggies took the doubles point on Saturday at San Francisco, but they only picked up two singles wins, eventually falling to the Dons, 4-3, in a nonconference makeup match.

UCD’s Megan Heneghan teamed with Melissa Kobayakawa to post an 8-2 victory at No. 2 doubles before Layla Sanders and Nicole Koehly clinched the point with a narrow 8-7 (7-5) win at No. 1.

Heneghan (at No. 1) and Kobayakawa (No. 4) both won singles matches in straight sets, but no other Aggie could match those results and the locals fell to 3-5 on the year.

UCD men’s tennis

Taking on No. 2 USC — which featured three of the nation’s top 50 singles players and the country’s No. 35-ranked doubles squad — the Aggies played tough in a couple of matches before losing 7-0.

For UCD (4-5), the doubles team of James Wade and Parker Kelly came close in an 8-5 loss and Alec Adamson put up a nice fight before dropping his singles match, 6-3, 7-5.

UCD women’s lacrosse

Junior attacker Meghan Jordan assisted on five goals while senior Carly Voris and freshman Melissa Kellan each tallied hat tricks as the Aggies opened their season with a 9-8 victory at George Mason.

Jordan chipped in a goal to go with her game-high assists total, while Voris’ all-around effort included shooting 3-for-5 with four draw controls, three ground balls and a late caused turnover that held off a last-minute comeback attempt by the Patriots. Kellan notched three goals and two assists in her UCD debut.

Junior Kai Murphy recorded 12 saves with eight goals against, with one of those opposing eight coming on a rare own-goal situation. Her play in the crease proved particularly important given how many more opportunities Mason had throughout the game. The host team had nearly twice as many shots as the Aggies (31-16) and won the majority of draws (12-7).

UCD women’s gymnastics

Senior Anna Shumaker narrowly missed her career high with a 39.200 all-around total on Friday, while her personal-best 9.875 on beam helped the Aggies break the school record in that event for the third time this season. The strong performance highlighted UCD’s 195.175-193.950 win over Seattle Pacific at the Royal Brougham Pavilion.

Shumaker’s 9.875 on beam wrapped up a 49.175 in that rotation, surpassing the previous benchmark of 49.125 set on Jan. 31. She tied sophomore Dani Judal for the meet title in that event, with senior Regi Solvkjar scoring 9.825 and sophomore Stephanie Stamates and senior Madeline Kennedy each added 9.800s.

The Aggies’ total team score on Friday was the fifth-highest in Aggie history and the program’s highest road score ever.

Shumaker added an uneven bars title (9.850) and was second on vault to tie for the fifth-highest all-around score in the UCD annuals.
