WEST SACRAMENTO — UC Davis freshman left-hander Orlando Razo allowed just two hits over 5 2/3 innings of relief and the visiting Aggies rallied from three runs down to hand Sacramento State a 6-3 defeat in front of 980 fans on Tuesday at Raley Field.
The win snapped an eight-game losing streak to the rival Hornets dating back to 2011 and pushed UCD’s record to 21-27. Sac State, which was 5-0 at Raley Field this season, fell to 32-21 overall.
Razo (2-4), who retired nine in a row at one point, needed only 66 pitches to nail down the win in his longest outing of the season, walking just one and striking out a career-high five in relief of starter Max Cordy. Aggie junior Raul Jacobson earned his second save of the season, entering with a runner on in the ninth before getting an around-the-horn double play and a strikeout to end the game.
Sacramento State used six pitchers on the night, holding the UCD offense to just six hits.
The Hornets took a 3-0 lead in the first inning, but Aggie Nick Lynch’s RBI groundout and Spencer Brann’s third home run of the season made it 3-2 in the top of the second.
UCD went ahead for good with three runs in the fourth.
The Aggies return to Dobbins Stadium for their final six contests of the season, beginning this weekend with a three-game series against Big West Conference rival Hawaii. The set opens on Friday at 2:30 p.m.
