STANFORD, Calif. - The UC Davis softball team led No. 19/21 Stanford 2-0 in the bottom of the fourth inning before the game was called due to rain on Wednesday at Smith Family Stadium.
The contest did not reach the required number of innings to be considered a full game. As a result, the final nonconference game of the season for the Aggies will not be rescheduled and stats will not be reflected for either team.
Justine Vela was working on a no-hitter through three and a third innings, allowing no hits, no walks and retiring five on strikes in that time.
UC Davis scored both runs in the top of the first inning, starting with a lead-off single from Megan Guzman. After a sacrifice bunt advanced the runner, Kelly Harman lit up the scoreboard with a two-run home run to put the Aggies on top. Vela was facing the second batter in the bottom of the fourth inning when the game was discontinued.
UC Davis seemingly had Stanford's number this season, after upsetting the Cardinal back on Feb. 15 in a 2-1 win at home. Stanford was ranked No. 8 at the time of the first meeting.
The Aggies will be back in action this weekend, hosting UC Santa Barbara in UC Davis' home series finale, starting with a doubleheader on Saturday, Apr. 28 at 12 p.m.
