UCD roundup: Aggies get one softball win, then nearly get another

Following a 1-0 win over Pacific in the first game of a Big West softball doubleheader on Wednesday at La Rue Field, UC Davis came up just short of completing the sweep in a 5-4 Game 2 loss.

The split series against the Tigers (23-19, 8-3) finishes next Wednesday, after the Aggies (16-19, 3-5) play a weekend set at UC Santa Barbara.

UCD opened the doubleheader by scoring the only run of Game 1 in the first inning. Aggie leadoff woman Megan Guzman and second hitter Jasmine Lee both reached base with singles before a shot through the middle by Christa Castello plated Guzman.

That tally was all starter Justine Vela needed to notch her 11th complete game, 10th win and fourth shutout of the year. She allowed just five batters to reach base, struck out 10 and retired 12 straight at one point into the seventh inning.

The scoreless softball continued through the first two innings of Game 2, before Pacific scored twice in the third to go ahead. After another tally in the fifth frame, the Tigers took what looked to be a comfortable lead with two in the top of the seventh.

But that woke up the UCD bats, as J.J. Wagoner singled and scored and pinch hitter Cailtin Voss drove in Cassandra Ginnis and Lee with a three-run homer to straightaway center field.

“It was a rise(ball), I saw it early and picked up the spin (on the ball) early in the at-bat,” Voss said. “I was ecstatic when I reached second base and realized that it sailed over the fence.”

Voss’ first home run as an Aggie, however, accounted for UCD’s last runs in the loss.

UCD track & field

Aggie hurdler Kayla Carter, who posted personal bests in a pair of events at last week’s prestigious Sun Angel Classic at Arizona State, was named the Big West Women’s Track Athlete of the Week.

The senior from Woodbridge finished eighth in the 100-meter hurdles (13.81 seconds), just the second time under 14 seconds in program history. The mark is tops in the Big West this season.

Carter added another outstanding mark in the 400 hurdles, finishing third at Arizona State in 1:00.70, slightly faster than the 1:00.73 she ran last season. She is currently ranked second in the Big West for the long hurdles and third in UCD history.
