Aggies Take No. 9 UC Irvine In Series Opener
DAVIS, Calif. – Right-handed pitcher Eddie Gamboa did not allow an earned run and struck out a game-high four batters, and senior first baseman Evan Hudson drove home the eventual game-winning run with a two-run single in the eighth inning to lift UC Davis to a 3-1 victory over No. 9 UC Irvine in the series-opening Big West Conference baseball game at Dobbins Stadium Friday afternoon.
With the temperature soaring to over 100 degrees, UC Davis broke a 1-1 tie off Hudson’s RBI’s to improve to 32-19 overall and 11-8 in conference play. The Anteaters drop to 34-15 and 10-9 against conference opponents.
“We knew we’d be in for a fight with (Scott) Gorgen in there,” said Aggie head coach Rex Peters. “You just hope the game is close late and you can get him out of there, and we did that today. Eddie (Gamboa) matched him pitch for pitch. This is a huge win. It helps us tremendously.”
Gamboa pitched 7.1 innings and did not allow an earned run while scattering seven hits and striking out four batters in the no decision. The only UC Irvine run came off a fielding error on the Aggie shortstop in the third inning.
Gorgen, one of the top pitchers in the Big West this season, gave up only one run off three hits through the first 6.2 innings before giving way to the bullpen. The single run was a sacrifice fly from Kyle Mihaylo in the sixth inning.
