April 1, 2014

DAVIS, Calif. -- The UC Davis baseball team's mid-week clash with visiting Saint Mary's scheduled for Tuesday afternoon has been postponed due to rain until Wednesday at 2:30 p.m. at Dobbins Stadium on campus.

Rain is expected to linger in the Davis area throughout the day, clearing to sunny skies by Wednesday morning.

The Aggies enter the contest with a 12-12 overall record after being swept by No. 5 Cal Poly in a three-game series in San Luis Obispo over the weekend. Senior Adam Young, who has reached base safely in each of his last 15 games, leads the team with a .466 average heading into this week's contests, pacing a group of five regulars who are hitting better then .300 on the season.

Lynch Homers as Aggies Fall in Tourney Opener
UC Davis junior Nick Lynch slugged his first home run of the season to give the Aggies the early lead, but the visitors could not hold back host Saint Mary's for long as the Gaels sent 11 batters to the plate as part of a five-run fourth inning en route to a 5-1 victory on Thursday afternoon to conclude day one of the Gael Invitational at Louis Guisto Field in Moraga, Calif.

The Gaels, who handed UC Davis a 5-1 defeat back on Feb. 20 in Moraga, Calif., enter the week at 13-13 overall, having won five of their last six following a series victory over West Coast Conference rival BYU at home last weekend. Sophomore outfielder Anthony Gonsolin leads all regulars with a .352 average, 22 runs scored, six doubles, five triples, and 15 RBI. Sophomore right-hander Jake Valdez was the scheduled starter, sporting a 1-1 record and a 2.57 ERA in eight appearances (six starts) this season.

Following the contest against Saint Mary's, the Aggies will take off for Southern California for a scheduled three-game Big West Conference series at No. 18 Cal State Fullerton beginning Friday (April 4) at 7 p.m. from Goodwin Field.
