STOCKTON, Calif. - Ryan Royster had four hits, Daniel Descalso had three hits and four RBI's and Kyle Mihaylo added three hits and knocked in a pair of runs as UC Davis had 16 hits on Saturday afternoon in a 14-5 nonconference baseball win over Pacific at Klein Family Field.
UC Davis, which won two of three games in the series, moved to 11-17 overall as Jeff Reekers pitched 6-2/3 innings to earn his fourth consecutive win. Pacific, which had five players with two hits, committed six errors while falling to 8-25-1.
The Aggies led 7-4 but took a 10-run lead after scoring seven runs in the seventh inning. The Aggies had six hits in the inning, getting two-run singles from Mihaylo and Jacob Jefferies and a two-run double to center from Descalso - one of two doubles he had in the game - to go up 14-5.
Two hits - one of them an RBI single from Jefferies - and two Tigers errors helped stake the Aggies to a 3-0 lead in the second inning, an early lead that was answered by two Pacific runs in the bottom half of the inning when John Joines had an RBI double and Matt Fuson picked up a run-scoring triple.
The teams matched two-run innings in the third. Descalso and Aaron Hanke had back-to-back doubles in UC Davis' half of the inning, both of them scoring runs, as the Aggies went up 5-2. However, Pacific starting pitcher Jason Haar helped his own cause in the bottom half of the frame, hitting a two-run homer to center off Reekers to make it 5-4.
UC Davis had just one hit in the fourth but capitalized on three Pacific errors to score two more runs to make it 7-4 and setting up the Aggies' big inning in the seventh.
Reekers pitched into the seventh inning for the Aggies, scattering 10 hits while walking one and striking out two. He allowed five runs while winning for the fourth straight game after an 0-2 start. Bryan Evans pitched 2-1/3 innings of effective relief, giving up just three hits and no walks while striking out a pair.
Haar went six inning for Pacific, falling to 1-2. He was charged with seven runs but only two of them were earned.
Royster had four hits to lead UC Davis, one of them an RBI double in the fourth inning, while Descalso and Mihaylo each had three hits. Hanke and Jefferies had two hits for UC Davis while Mihaylo and Jefferies combined to knock in five runs.
Joe Oliveira, Zach Chamberlin, Justin Baum, Joines and Fuson each had two hits for Pacific.
