HONOLULU, Hawaii - Holly Garcia's RBI double in the bottom of the sixth inning delivered host Hawaii Pacific a 1-0 win in Thursday's first game while a four-run rally in the fifth inning sparked a 5-3 win in the nightcap, as the Lady Sea Warriors swept UC Davis in a nonconference softball doubleheader.

The losses drop the Aggies' overall record to 22-22 while Hawaii Pacific improves to 20-17.

Amy Rosson gave up just five hits in the opener for UC Davis while catcher Megan Turman collected two hits for the Aggies. Three players had a pair of hits each to lead UC Davis in the second game.

Hawaii Pacific and UC Davis were knotted in a scoreless tie in the opener before Rachel Lakar led off the Sea Warriors' sixth with a single to center. After being sacrificed to second, Lakar came around to score on Garcia's double to left for the go-ahead run.

That was the only run pitcher Jessica Parra needed as she put the Aggies down in order in the seventh to record her sixth win of the season. Parra is 6-5.

Rosson dropped to 15-8 after pitching a strong game. She struck out eight, walked just one and scattered five hits. Parra was equally effective, striking out just one, but not walking any batters. She gave up four hits, two of them to Turman. Emily Hetzner and Nikki Sheldon also had hits for UC Davis.

In the nightcap, UC Davis rallied for three runs after two were out in the third inning. A walk and a hit put runners at first and second before Lindsey Roark's single to right scored one run. Jessica Miller then doubled in two more as UC Davis took a 3-0 lead.

Trailing 3-1, however, Hawaii Pacific rallied for four runs on four hits to take a 5-3 lead. Three bases loaded walks brought in three of the runs, while Jennifer Baron's single to right brought in the fourth. Lindsay Tognetti, Rachel Kelly, Lauren Pieretti and Rosson each pitched in the inning for UC Davis.



Tognetti took the loss, falling to 4-5. Mallory Anderson started the game for Hawaii Pacific but gave way to Clerisse Lemke whoe earned the win, improving to 3-1.

Hetzner, Roark and Breanna Adame each had two hits for the Aggies. Lacar and Garcia each had a pair for the Sea Warriors.

UC Davis will face Chaminade on Friday in another nonconference twinbill before facing Hawaii Pacific again on Saturday.
