The UC Davis baseball team’s offense continued to click on Sunday as it banged out a season-high 17 hits and scored in seven of the nine innings to defeat Portland, 11-2, in the final game of the Gael Invitational.

The season-high scoring output got the Aggies (4-4) their third straight victory.

The offensive outburst was more than enough to make a winner out of UCD starter Max Cordy (1-0). The sophomore right-hander allowed just two runs on six hits while striking out five in 5 1/3 innings of work. Freshman Zach Stone earned his first career save by pitching 3 2/3 scoreless innings.

The Aggies scored early and often, tallying seven times in the first three innings to jump out to an early advantage.

Nick Lynch, who had homered four times in the previous three games and was named the Big West Conference Player of the Week on Monday, had an RBI single Sunday to kick off the scoring. That was followed by run-scoring hits from Austin March (two-run triple) and Kevin Barker (RBI single) for the 4-0 lead.

Steven Patterson added an RBI single in the second while Tino Lipson and Seth Batty added RBI singles in the third for the Aggies, who finished with five extra-base hits and were hit by pitches five times in the game.

UCD softball

Amy Nunez had two hits and knocked in three runs on Sunday morning as the Aggies beat LIU-Brooklyn 4-1 at the Mary Nutter Classic in Cathedral City. Later that day, Christa Castillo had a pair of hits but UCD dropped an 8-0 decision to No. 6 Oregon.

Relief pitcher Leah Munden went 3 1/3 innings to pick up the win for the Aggies (5-13).

Nunez struck with an RBI single to center field in the first inning, knocking in Brianna Warner who had reached on an infield single before stealing second.

UCD tacked on another run in the third inning, when a one-out triple to right by Kelly Zboralske led to pinch runner Cat Guidry scoring on Chandler Wagner’s sacrifice bunt.

Nunez came through again in the fourth, smacking a two-out single to center that plated Alicia Paine and Krista Bava. Paine had two hits for the Aggies, who had seven overall and also played error-free defense.

UCD women’s water polo

Aggie sophomore Allyson Hansen had hat tricks in each end of a UCI Invitational doubleheader as the 14th-ranked Aggies earned a split, beating Bakersfield 13-12 in the morning before falling, 11-10, to No. 18 San Diego State.

Hansen’s three goals led eight UCD scorers in the victory over the Roadrunners. Junior Paige Oreglia, freshman Carla Tocchini and junior Keelia Houston, a Davis High graduate, each added two goals, while Ariel Arcidiacono, Katrina Husted, Hannah Curran and Elsie Fullerton, another former Blue Devil, each chipped in one for the Aggies (9-10).

Hansen tallied three goals while Husted had another two in the nightcap loss to the Aztecs. Arcidiacono, Houston, Tocchini, Curran and Fullerton had one goal each. UCD took a one-goal lead in the opening quarter and held a 5-4 edge at the halftime break before SDSU surged ahead with four goals in the third.

UCD women’s tennis

In a dual match that lasted nearly four hours at the Marya Welch Tennis Center, late singles victories by Layla Sanders and Melissa Kobayakawa helped the Aggies turn a 3-2 deficit into a 4-3 victory over Sacramento State on Sunday.

By beating its rival, UCD (4-5) picked up another five points in the Causeway Cup standings, giving the Aggies enough points (51.25) to clinch the annual competition.

UCD started Sunday’s match by capturing two doubles victories to take an early one-point lead. Nicole Koehly and Sanders won easily, 8-3, at No. 1, then Megan Heneghan and Kobayakawa followed with an 8-5 victory at No. 2.

A singles win by Heneghan, 6-2, 6-1 over Jennifer Nguyen at No. 1, set up the late heroics.

With each match extended to a decisive third set — Sanders won her first set, 6-2, before falling by that score in the second and Kobayakawa’s 6-3 first-set victory was followed by a 6-4 loss — the Aggies needed both victories to leave the Marya Welch Tennis Center in victorious fashion.

Once Sanders grinded out a 7-5 set victory, Kobayakawa’s contest quickly morphed into a winner-take-all battle. The UCD standout then clinched the match with a 6-1 third-set win.

UCD women’s lacrosse

Freshman attacker Melissa Kellan netted seven goals, junior midfielder Elizabeth Landry tallied six assists and junior goalkeeper Kai Murphy posted 19 saves as the Aggies won at Old Dominion, 12-6.

All three of UCD’s top performances were worthy of the all-time record books as Kellan’s seven goals were the most by a freshman since Katie McMahon scored a school-record nine against Colorado College in 2004. Kellan is tied for seventh on the program’s single-game list. Landry’s assists total joins a five-way tie for second in Aggie history, while Murphy’s saves were enough to put her in a tie for third all-time.

Senior midfielder Carly Voris added a hat trick while Landry and sophomore Ellie Delich each scored one goal to help UCD improve to 2-0. Sophomore Mary Doyle chipped in two assists, with Delich and junior Meghan Jordan adding one apiece.
