SAN LUIS OBISPO — The UC Davis baseball team saw its comeback attempt end one run short in a 5-4 loss at No. 21-ranked Cal Poly on Thursday night at Baggett Stadium in both teams’ Big West Conference opener.

The Aggies fell to 10-13, while the Mustangs improved to 18-6.

Cal Poly starting pitcher Joey Wagman (6-1), the Big West’s leader in strikeouts, earned the win after allowing four runs on nine hits with six strikeouts and one walk in six innings. UC Davis starter Harry Stanwyck (3-3) picked up the loss after giving up five runs on eight hits with four strikeouts and three walks in 5 2/3 innings. The Aggies’ bullpen did not allow a run for the second consecutive contest but the UCD offense couldn’t finish off the comeback.

The nationally ranked Mustangs jumped out to a 4-0 lead with two runs in the second inning and two more in the third.

The Aggies got a couple of runs back in the fourth frame, when second baseman Steven Patterson singled with one out and moved to third on first baseman Nick Lynch’s double down the left-field line. UCD designated hitter Cameron Olsen then drove in both base runners with a single up the middle.

Cal Poly pushed its lead to three with a run in the fifth, but the Aggies weren’t finished either.

UCD catcher Spencer Brann doubled to lead off the seventh inning and scored when shortstop Tino Lipson tripled to the wall in right-center. Right fielder John Williams, who was moved up to bat leadoff on Thursday, followed with a single through the left side to drive in Lipson.

After Williams’ single, Cal Poly pulled Wagman and brought on closer Reed Reilly, who recorded his seventh save of the season with three no-hit innings.

Patterson finished with a team-best three hits, while Lipson had two hits for the Aggies, who will throw Spencer Koopmans on Friday (6 p.m.) in Game 2 of the series.
