Softball Sweeps UC Davis

    In an important two-game series against sixth-ranked UC Davis on Friday, the UCSD women’s softball team swept two games to improve its CCAA league record to 15-8-1, while the Aggies dropped to 13-8 in league.

    UCSD managed only three hits in the first game, but two came in the crucial third inning. Those hits, combined with two Davis errors, gave the Tritons a 4-0 lead. UCSD pitcher Leea Harlan just managed to hold off the powerful Aggies as they rallied for three runs but came up short, 4-3. The loss was Davis pitcher Susan Churchwell’s first since February 14, ending her nine-game winning streak.

    In the second game, UCSD jumped on Davis early, posting two runs in the first inning. The Aggies scored a run in the third, but Triton pitcher Christi Martinelli had no trouble until the sixth inning, when Davis had the tying runs in scoring position. Martinelli escaped by inducing a fly out to end the inning.

    Two runs in the seventh nailed the coffin on Davis.

    UCSD travels to Bakersfield next weekend for the California State University Bakersfield Invitational.
