POMONA, Calif. - The Broncos received a complete-game pitching performance from Taylor Wilding and four hits from Kenneth Galindo en route to an 8-4 win over UC Davis in a California Collegiate Athletic Association baseball game Sunday at Scolinos Field.
With the loss the Aggies split the four-game series with Pomona and exit with a 33-14-1 record, 28-7-1 in CCAA play. Pomona improves to 24-23-2 overall, 17-18-1 in conference action.
Wilding pitched his first complete game of the season and was strong all the way through. The Aggies scored three times in the third inning to take a short-lived lead, but Wilding limited UC Davis to only one run and four hits over the final six innings.
The Bronco offense had an explosive day and pounded out 12 hits against four UC Davis pitchers. Galindo led the way with the first four-hit game of his career, while Jason Stuck broke the game open with a two-run double off the left-field fence in the seventh inning.
Kenny McCarthy, Matt Stevens and Stuck had two hits each for the Broncos.
Cal Poly Pomona jumped out to a quick 2-0 lead in the first. McCarthy opened the game with a single and took second on a balk by UC Davis starter Paul Gonzales. Galindo then followed with a one-out two-run home run to stake the Broncos to the lead.
UC Davis bunched together four hits in the third inning to take a 3-0 lead. Michael Jacobellis started the rally with a double and scored on a double by Kyle Irving. Robby Tulk followed with a run-scoring single and later scored on a RBI single by Lukas Kirby.
Cal Poly Pomona tied the game in the bottom of the inning on a run-scoring single by Stuck and then took the lead for good with a two-run fourth inning rally. Matt Lopez started it with a one-out single and took third on a single by Marc Evans, who then took second on the throw to third base. Lopez scored on a passed ball and McCarthy singled in Evans to give the Broncos a 5-3 lead.
After UC Davis cut the lead to 5-4 on Tulk's solo home run in the seventh inning, his ninth of the season, but the Broncos broke the game open with three runs in the bottom of the inning. Stuck's bases-loaded, two-run double was the big hit of the inning and a final run scored on a groundout by Greg Denning.
Tulk ended the day going 2-for-4 with two runs and two RBIs. Brandon Oliver also had a pair of hits for the Aggies.
UC Davis will next be in action on Tuesday when they travel to Rohnert Park to face Sonoma State in a non-conference game. Gametime is set for 2:30 p.m.
