Where are the runs? Aggies get 13 hits but tally just once in loss

The UC Davis baseball team got a lot of hits, but not a lot of runs on Thursday at Dobbins Stadium.

Meanwhile, visiting UC Santa Barbara didn’t need many hits to score as the Aggies made a season-high four errors that led to five unearned runs and the Gauchos won the opener of both teams’ final Big West Conference series of the year, 7-1.

UCD fell to 23-29 overall and 7-15 in league play, dropping the opening game of a three-game Big West series for the fifth consecutive weekend. UCSB won its fifth straight game against the Aggies to improve to 32-17-1 overall and 10-12 in conference.

Of the Aggies’ 13 hits on the day, 12 were singles. One of the singles, by Spencer Brann in the bottom of the second inning, brought home Adam Young with UCD’s only run of the contest. At the time, it cut the Gauchos’ 2-0 lead in half.

Seven of the nine Aggie starters finished with hits — five of them getting multiple safeties — and UCD had more than one hit in six of nine innings. The locals left nine runners on base, five of them in scoring position as they hit into rally-killing double plays in the third, seventh and eighth innings.

UCD junior right-hander Spencer Koopmans (4-3) pitched into the sixth, striking out a pair but suffering the loss thanks to four unearned runs. He allowed just one earned run before giving way to Max Cordy (one earned over three innings) and Connor Detko (one hit in one frame of work).

Justin Jacome (8-2) earned the win for the Gauchos, allowing just the single run on nine hits while striking out two. He worked out of numerous jams, then handed the ball off to Kenny Chapman, who allowed four hits over two scoreless innings of relief.

After the Aggies cut the deficit to one run, UCSB responded immediately to go up 3-1 in the top of the third, then took control with three runs — all unearned — in the sixth.

Tino Lipson, Steven Patterson, Nick Lynch, Brann and Kevin Barker had two hits each to pace the Aggie offense.

The series continues Friday (2:30 p.m.) when UCD sends senior right-hander Harry Stanwyck (3-7, 5.45 ERA) to the hill to face Gauchos’ right-hander Austin Pettibone (4-1, 2.79 ERA).
