UCD roundup: Patterson powers Aggies baseballers

From page B2 | March 12, 2014 |

Senior Steven Patterson had two triples and three RBIs while junior center fielder Kevin Parker added four hits to help the UC Davis baseball team battle back from an early deficit and post a 9-5 win over San Jose State on Tuesday at Dobbins Stadium.

UCD (8-8) scored all of its runs in the first, sixth and eighth innings. Patterson hit his triples in the first and eighth, the first of which brought home Seth Batty and Adam Young to tie the game at 2-2.

With the Aggies trailing 5-2, Barker’s second hit ignited a three-run sixth to tie things up again.

UCD then put up four runs in the bottom of the eighth to take the lead for good. Evan Heptig took a pitch in the back to lead off the inning. One out later, Batty’s single put two on for Young, who singled home Heptig and saw Batty score on an error on the same play. Patterson then tripled home Young and scored the final Aggie run on Nick Lynch’s sacrifice fly.

Freshman Zach Stone threw 2 2/3 innings of shutout relief to earn his first collegiate win, while Batty made a great catch to save two runs in the fifth.

UCD has now won four of its last five games heading into this weekend’s home series against New Mexico State. Friday’s opener starts at 2:30 p.m.

Matt Hansen’s eagle on the 18th hole capped his 2-under 69 on Tuesday and Luke Vivolo’s third-round 72 put the pair in second and third place, respectively, as the Aggies finished second at the Bandon Dunes Championship.

UCD, which trailed winner Missouri by 15 strokes entering the final round, roared to within two strokes of the Tigers by firing a 1-over 285. It was the lowest team score of the day by four shots and helped the Aggies finish ahead of three teams ranked in Golfstat’s top 50: No. 16 Washington, No. 48 Colorado and No. 39 Oregon.

Hansen (-2) and Vivolo (-1) were two of just three golfers who managed to tame the Pacific Dunes course at the Bandon Dunes Golf Resort with scores under par.

UCD’s Ben Corfee, from El Macero, had a strong tournament, tying for 15th at 6-over, while teammate Jonny Baxter, who had a 71, tied for 33rd at 20-over. Joshua Granger was 78th for the Aggies at 28-over.
