UC Davis outfielder John Williams had two triples, a double and four RBIs as one of six Aggies to have at least two hits in Wednesday’s 22-4 thrashing of San Jose State at Dobbins Stadium.
The 23-hit explosion saw UCD come up just four runs and three hits short of the school records, and helped the Aggies improve to 4-1 on the season.
The locals actually trailed 2-0 after the top of the first inning, but quickly took the lead for good with three runs in their half of the inning.
Fourteen Aggies had hits in the game, including three each from Nick Lynch and third baseman Paul Politi, who stretched his hitting streak to 15 games and knocked in three runs on Wednesday. Austin Logan, Steven Patterson and Evan Heptig had two hits apiece for UCD.
Matt Seramin started his final round with three consecutive birdies on Wednesday morning, collecting five overall to finish with a 2-under 69 and lead the Aggies on the final day of the The Prestige at PGA West’s Greg Norman Course.
UCD, which co-hosted the event with Stanford, finished 11th with a team score of 31-over 883. No. 4 Washington and No. 10 USC tied for the team title at 1-under.
Seramin, who played his final two rounds two shots under par, tied for 27th overall at 6-over 219, while Aggie senior Tyler Raber, a Davis High graduate, also had a strong final round, finishing with a 71 and tying for 15th at 2-over 215.
Additional finishers for the Aggies were Matt Hansen (76 on Wednesday to tie for 45th at 10-over), Jonny Baxter, who was 60th overall after his 74 put him at 13-over for the week, and freshman Ben Corfee, from El Macero, who finished with a 78 and tied for 79th at 26-over.
The Aggies took an early lead on the first day of the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation swimming championships, using a pair of school-record performances to score 74 points on Wednesday.
Hilary Hunt, Liliana Alvarez, Megan Leung and Haley Porter teamed up for the fastest 200 medley relay swim in UCD history (1:40.28) to take second in the race.
Later, Porter was joined by Samantha Shellem, Katie Edwards and Bridget Bugbee for the 800 free relay and the quartet set a meet record and the school benchmark with a 7:14.45, good enough to take first place by more than six seconds.
