Pacific baseball fell to UC Davis today, 7-0, in a day in which the Tiger offense couldn't get going.
The Tigers tallied three hits while Davis had 11 and pushed across seven runs in the loss. In a bullpen day for both teams, the Tigers used seven pitchers including the Tiger starter, left-handed junior Tommy Costello, who was tacked with the loss. Junior right-handed pitcher David Rajeski pitched two full innings and allowed two hits. Junior right-handed hurler Josh Winkler finished out the game.
On offense, three Tigers had hits including junior outfielder Keaton Glover, who also stole his team-leading fourth bag of the year. Junior catcher James Free caught two runners trying to steal, moving him to 17 on the year.
The Aggies scored in the first inning following a double play that put the Tigers on the doorstep of a clean bottom half of the frame, but a two-out single scored Davis' first run of the game.
Two more runs would cross in the sixth inning for UC Davis when the Tigers gave up two hits and committed an error as well as a couple of fielding mistakes to make the score 3-0.
In the eighth, Davis scored four more runs on four more hits to make the final score, 7-0 and even the season series between the regional rivals at 1-1.
The Tigers will close out the season series with UC Davis next Tuesday in Stockton in a 6 p.m. game. First, the Tigers will resume West Coast Conference play this weekend with a three-game series against the defending conference champions, Gonzaga, in Spokane.
