UC Davis third baseman Paul Politi and second baseman Steven Patterson each collected two hits while Mike Mazzara knocked in two runs, but CS Bakersfield rode early scoring to a 12-5 nonconference baseball win over the Aggies on Saturday afternoon at Dobbins Stadium.

UCD (6-9) lost its third straight game, two of them against the Roadrunners (10-4) including an 11-0 loss on Friday.

On Saturday, Bakersfield used a 23-hit attack that was paced by catcher Cael Brockmeyer, who was 4-of-6 with two home runs and four RBIs.

After allowing a run in the top of the first inning, the Aggies briefly took the lead with two runs in the bottom half. Patterson singled to left field, knocking in Seth Batty, and Politi, who singled with one out, came across on an infield error.

Bakersfield took the lead for good in the third inning, however, picking up five runs on five hits. Brockmeyer had a two-run homer to left in that frame.

Shortstop Tino Lipson had a run-scoring single in the fourth and Mazzara added a two-run double in the seventh to account for the other UCD runs.

Right fielder John Williams had a double, while designated hitter Nick Lynch, first baseman Austin Logan and catcher Spencer Brann also collected hits in the defeat.

Aggie starter Spencer Koopmans (0-3) took the loss, lasting only two full innings before he was relieved by Robert Parucha with none out in the third inning.

On Friday, Lynch and Patterson had two hits each but the Roadrunners’ Jeff McKenzie threw a complete-game shutout.

UCD starting pitcher Harry Stanwyck had five strikeouts in his four innings, but fell to 1-2 on the season.

The two teams will conclude their three-game series on Sunday with a 1 p.m. matchup at Dobbins Stadium.

UCD track and field

Led by shot put and discus throw wins from freshman Praise Adesida, the UCD women and women had a big day at the Aggie Open on Saturday at Woody Wilson Track.

Adesida sent the shot put 13.69 meters (44 feet, 11 inches) to debut at No. 7 on the program’s all-time list and tossed the discus 44.61 meters (146-4) to reach eighth on that Aggie list.

Other members of the UCD women’s team to earn victories on Saturday included Cekarri Nixon (200), Melanise Chapman (400), Nina Anderson (3,000), Alycia Cridebring (5,000), Kayla Carter (100 hurdles), Katie Fry (2K steeplechase), Katie Barber (high jump) and Danielle Steffen (pole vault).

For the Aggie men, Ethan Ostrom won the pole vault and other victories came from Jordan Rushing (1,500), Sava Boyadjiev (long jump) and DHS graduate Grayson Hough (5,000).

UCD women’s water polo

The No. 13 Aggies faced a pair of 15th-ranked Big West Conference opponents on Friday and Saturday, losing in heartbreaking fashion both times.

After falling at CS Northridge, 11-10, on a goal in the final minute, the Aggies watched UC Santa Barbara tally in the final 10 seconds of Saturday’s outing to clinch an 8-7 win at Campus Pool.

Senior attackers Carmen Eggert and Jessica Dunn each followed up hat tricks in Friday’s game with two goals apiece at UCSB (12-7, 1-0), while junior center Hannah Curran had a pair of tallies in each matchup for the Aggies (10-9, 0-2). Also for UCD, Alex Rawlinson had a single goal in each game and Katrina Husted scored once against the Matadors.

Gaucho freshman Jessie Porter had three goals including the game-winner on Saturday, with Friday’s tie-breaking tally coming from CSUN’s Leah Janke.

UCD softball

After rain forced the postponement of games originally scheduled for Friday the Aggies were able to open action at the Diamond Devil Invitational hosted in Tempe, Ariz. on Saturday splitting contests against New Mexico State and Notre Dame.

In a matchup that briefly started on Friday before being postponed, New Mexico State finished a 4-2 win over UCD on Saturday. Following a short break, the locals bounced back to top Norte Dame, 5-4.

After the Aggies took the lead over the Irish by scoring one run in the second inning, its was a four-run fourth that provided UCD pitcher Justine Vela with enough of a cushion to record her team-high sixth win of the season.

Vela struck out six and allowed only four hits before giving way to Leah Munden, who recorded her first save of the season.

UCD men’s golf

Matt Seramin had seven birdies and played the front nine of the  Old MacDonald Golf Course two shots under par, finishing with a 2-under 70 and leading the Aggies in the second round of the Bandon Dunes Championship on Saturday.

Seramin moved up 41 spots in the individual standings after his strong round and was tied for 33rd at 5-over 149 by the end of the day. UCD shot 11-over 299 and is in ninth place, 19 shots over par. DHS graduate Tyler Raber and Ben Corfee, from El Macero, added 76’s for the Aggies, while Jonny Baxter had a 77 and Matt Hansen carded a 79.

UCD men’s tennis

The Aggies started the opener of a five-match homestand with wins in all three doubles matches on Saturday at the Marya Welch Tennis Center, but Nevada responded by taking five of six singles contests to defeat UCD, 5-2.

The nonconference match started well for the Aggies (6-7), when Toki Sherbakov and Adam Levie took down Nevada’s top doubles pair — Victor Ouvrard and Robert Allan — 9-8.

Kyle Miller and Adam Luba then got a win by the same score before George Horowitz and Brett Bacharach completed UCD’s doubles sweep of the Wolf Pack (7-4) with an 8-6 victory.

Miller also posted the Aggies’ only singles win, beating Ouvrard, 7-6, 6-3, at No. 1.

UCD hosts Texas-Arlington on Sunday at noon.

UCD gymnastics

Junior Anna Shumaker scored a career-high 39.050 in the all-around, senior Katie Yamamura won the individual uneven bars at 9.825 and the vault squad set a school record to highlight the Aggies’ performance on Friday at The Event Center in San Jose.

Host San Jose State came from behind to win the meet with a 195.575 team score, 23rd-ranked Boise State finished second and UCD (9-11) took third with a 194.500 that was good enough to edge fourth-place Seattle Pacific.

With her four-event total, Shumaker becomes the seventh gymnast in school history to break the 39-point barrier. She opened with a 9.775 on floor exercise, tied her career high of 9.850 on vault, then scored 9.725 on bars and 9.700 on beam.

The Aggies went 48.950 on vault during the second rotation to take a 0.65 lead over the Spartans at the midway point of the meet. Yamamura led the squad with a 9.875, just ahead of Shumaker’s PR. Sophomore Tiana Montell (9.850) and junior Madeline Kennedy (9.775) also set vault career highs of 9.850 and 9.775.
