Box Score

STOCKTON, Calif. - The University of the Pacific scored four times in the bottom of the Tigers posted a 5-3 come-from-behind nonconference softball win at Bill Simoni Field.

The teams were scheduled to open their three-game weekend series with a doubleheader on Saturday but rain washed out the day's second game. UC Davis and Pacific will attempt to play a noon doubleheader on Sunday, weather permitting.

Michelle Anunciation had a three-run home run as part of the Tigers' late rally.

UC Davis fell to 2-10 with the defeat while Pacific improved to 6-1.

Pacific took a 1-0 lead in the first inning on Saturday against Aggie starter Lindsay Tognetti, getting a one-out double by Gina Carbonatto and then an RBI single up the middle by Jennifer Curtier.

UC Davis responded, however, with two runs in the second after Ashley Johnson doubled to right to score Jessica Hancock and Stacey Benzing. Hancock had singled to open the frame while Benzing walked. The Aggies tacked on another run in the sixth for a 3-1 lead after Benzing singled to right to score Nikki Sheldon who had walked.

The Tigers, though, rallied with four runs in the bottom half of the inning, capitalizing on three hits and an error. Anunciation provided the big hit of the inning, picking up her second home run of the season with a three-run shot to right that also scored Brittany Hyams and Mandy Hickman.

Tognetti fell to 0-3 with the loss, scattering six hits and five runs - only one which was earned. She struck out five and walked four. Natalie King improved to 4-0 after allowing six hits, while walking three and striking out four.



Catcher Megan Turman had two hits for the Aggies as did Johnson.
