UCD softball wins two in San Diego

By
February 21, 2011 |

With pitching like it got on Sunday in San Diego, the UC Davis softball team isn’t going to lose a lot of games.

Alex Holmes and Jessica Thweatt each allowed just one run in pitching complete games to send the Aggies to 2-1 and 3-1 wins over San Diego and Sacramento State, respectively, on the final day at the San Diego Classic I.

After weather conditions prevented play on Saturday, UCD capped off the weekend on a good note and finished 2-1 at the event. Kelly Schutze paced the offense with three hits and two RBI on Sunday, while Jessica Gonzalez and Megan Guzman also posted multi-hit performances in the victories.

Against San Diego (1-1), the Aggies (4-4) used three hits and two runs in the third to take a lead that they would not surrender. UCD overcame three errors in the game, as the Toreros posted seven hits in the game but only managed a late run in the seventh.

Guzman started the decisive third inning with a single down the right-field line. Elizabeth Santana had an RBI single to score the first run and Schulze followed with an RBI double.

In the circle, Holmes scattered four hits through the first six innings and the Aggies gunned down a San Diego runner at the plate in the seventh before allowing a run that didn’t affect the outcome. Holmes picked up her first win of the season after allowing seven hits and striking out five in a complete game.

In the matchup against Sacramento State (1-6) UCD took another close win over its Causeway rivals behind Thweatt’s three-hitter.

The Aggies posted a run in the top of the first, using a Gonzalez double to put a runner in scoring position. Schulze had another clutch hit with a two-out RBI single up the middle to give UCD a 1-0 lead.

The Hornets, however, fired back in the bottom of the inning to even the score before the Aggies took the lead for good in the fourth. UCD’s Heather Zimmerman doubled with one out, and Kylie Fan scored on a Sac State throwing error to make it 2-1. The Aggies posted an insurance run in the top of the seventh, when Holmes hit a lead-off triple and scored on a sacrifice fly.

Thweatt allowed just one hit in the first six innings, then got out of a bases-loaded jam in the seventh to close out the win. She struck out six Hornets to improve to 3-2 on the season.

The teams will renew the Causeway Classic rivalry on Wednesday when the Hornets come to La Rue Field for the Aggies’ home opener at 2 p.m.
