UCD roundup: 25th-ranked Cal wins at Dobbins

May 18, 2011 |

Up early on No. 25 Cal on Wednesday at Dobbins Stadium, the UC Davis baseball team couldn’t hold on to the lead and lost 8-3.

In the bottom of the second, Ryan Allgrove’s base hit through the right side brought Alex Dreyfuss home from second base, giving the Aggies (16-31) a 1-0 lead. Justin Andrade then put UCD up 2-0 as he took advantage of a throwing error by Golden Bears’ shortstop Marcus Semien.

Cal (29-16) cut UCD’s lead in half with a run in the top of the third inning when Semien had an RBI single.

The Golden Bears then scored twice in the fifth, added three more in the sixth inning, then went up 8-3 after two runs in the ninth.

The Aggies, meanwhile, managed just one more hit, until the ninth inning. In the final frame, Andrade walked and a hit by Daniel Cepin put runners on first and third. When Cepin stole second, Cal catcher Chadd Krist overthrew the bag and the Bears’ fourth error of the game allowed Andrade to come home. That was it, however, and UCD got no closer.

The Aggies continue their homestand with a three-game Big West series against UC Santa Barbara beginning Friday. First pitch is set for 2:30 p.m.

UCD men’s basketball

The Aggies announced Wednesday that Tyrell Corbin from West High School in Salt Lake City has signed a national letter of intent and will join the UCD men in the fall.

Corbin, a 6-foot point guard, was named Mr. Basketball for 2010-11 in Utah and helped lead West to a 4A state championship as a sophomore in 2009. He is the son of Utah Jazz head coach Tyrone Corbin, who played 16 years in the NBA, including the 1994-95 season alongside new Aggie coach Jim Les.

Les has wasted no time hitting the recruiting trail, bringing in his first player since UCD introduced him as head coach on May 5.

“In Ty, we add a proven winner and floor general to our basketball program,” Les said in a release. “He combines work ethic, talent and impeccable character to embody the type of all-around student-athlete we need at UC Davis to be successful.”

Corbin steadily improved his high school offensive output from 5.9 ppg to 24.8 ppg over a four-year span. He helped West to a 58-12 record over a three-year stretch from 2008-11. Corbin finished his career with 1,432 points and over 300 assists under the direction of head coach Bob Lyman.

“Tyrell has been the best point guard in the state of Utah for the past three years,” Lyman said.

Corbin will look to hit the ground running for the 2011-12 Aggies. UCD lost two senior point guards — Mark Payne and Todd Lowenthal — to graduation.
