UCD roundup: Aggie baseball swept away by Highlanders

By
From page B2 | April 20, 2014 |

The UC Davis baseball team held a slim lead entering the top of the sixth, but host UC Riverside rallied from two runs down to sweep a three-game series from Aggies with a 4-2 win Saturday afternoon at the Riverside Sports Complex.

The Aggies fell to 16-20 overall and 3-9 in Big West Conference play, while UC Riverside improved to 17-18 overall and 6-3 in league play, avenging a sweep by UCD last season at Dobbins Stadium.

Sophomore Tanner Bily continued to swing a hot bat, leading the Aggies with a 2-for-4 day at the plate, joining teammate Kevin Barker in driving home runs during a second inning that gave UCD the early 2-0 lead. Bily, who began the week with just three hits in eight at-bats, finished the series hitting 7-for-11 (.636) with four runs scored, two walks and four RBI.

Freshman Orlando Razo (1-4) suffered the loss for the Aggies, allowing three unearned runs on a hit and walking two in two-thirds of an inning. Ben Doucette (3-3) allowed just two runs on five hits in seven innings of work, striking out four, en route to the win, while Kevin Sprague nailed down his fifth save, allowing a hit and a walk in 1.1 innings.

On Friday, the Aggies mounted a furious comeback only to come up just short, scoring five unanswered runs late in the game before falling to UCR, 7-6. Barker was 2-for-5, driving home a pair of runs in the sixth to help key the Aggies’ rally.

UCD women’s tennis

Megan Heneghan, one of three UCD seniors who competed in their final dual in Saturday’s nonconference match at the Marya Welch Center, capped a nearly five-hour battle against San Jose State with a gutsy three-set victory. However, it was the visiting Spartans who were able to record a 4-3 win by taking four of six singles matchups to defeat the Aggies.

UCD will enter next week’s Big West Tournament at 12-9 overall and 4-3 in the Big West, San Jose State improves to 11-13.

For the 14th time in their last 15 matches, the Aggies took a 1-0 lead by capturing the doubles point.

Against the Spartans, it was Tiffany Pham and Samantha Martino who stepped up to win their tiebreaker 7-5, which led to an 8-7 win over Marie Klocker and Justine Deleval. Once Heneghan and Kobayakawa extended their Division I program record doubles win streak to 15 with their 8-6 win over Julianna Bacelar and Jessica Willett, the Aggies officially took the lead entering the round of singles.

Heneghan and Klocker split the first two sets. Heneghan followed her first-set victory by pulling away in the third to earn the Aggies’ final team point. Heneghan won 7-5, 4-6, 6-1.

UCD track and field

UC Davis sprinter Ashley Marshall went up against elite competition on Saturday at the Mt. SAC Relays, racing in both the 100- and 200-meter invitational dashes at the high-caliber meet.

She finished 12th in the 100 in 11.50 seconds — her fastest wind-legal time of the season — while later turning in a time of 23.61 seconds in the 200. The latter time was wind-aided but was her fastest time in the event this season.

Marshall was the final competitor at the Mt. SAC Relays this weekend while a few other Aggies took part in the 20th Beach Invitational, hosted by Long Beach State at Cerritos College.

Leslie Reed finished 12th in the 100 at the meet for the women, while Karl Moran turned in the UCD men’s best 400 time this spring with his 13th-place mark of 48.78 seconds.

UCD women’s water polo
In a match that featured numerous lead changes, the UC Davis women’s water polo squad needed one more to pick up a win.

However, Aggie Kaitlin Murphy’s backhanded goal with 1:24 left in the fourth was not enough as No. 18 Santa Clara edged 17th-ranked UCD 11-10 in a nonconference game at Schaal Aquatics Center Saturday afternoon.

Senior center Hannah Curran led the Aggies (12-17 overall) with three goals, while junior Keelia Houston added two. Sammi Murphy, Paige Oreglia, Alex Rawlinson, Bryn Lutz and Katrina Husted each netted one to round out the offensive totals, and junior Jillian Wilding posted nine saves in front of the UCD cage.

Kaitlin Murphy’s goal marked the fourth lead change of the contest.

Sammi Murphy’s power-play goal in the final minute of the first quarter and Curran’s shot from the 1 spot early in the second gave the Aggies a 5-3 edge.

UCD women’s lacrosse

Junior Elizabeth Landry scored five goals while junior Meghan Jordan matched that total in assists, leading UC Davis to a 15-8 win over Fresno State in Mountain Pacific Sports Federation women’s lacrosse action at Aggie Stadium on Friday afternoon.

The Aggies snapped a five-game losing skid to improve to 7-8 overall and 2-6 in MPSF play. The Bulldogs slipped to 2-11 for the year and 1-7 in conference.
