The UC Davis softball team hosted Cal State Fullerton on Friday and Saturday in a three-game Big West Conference series.
On Friday, the Aggies and the Titans opened the action with a doubleheader.
The Titans belted two home runs in the first game on their way to a 10-3 victory. The Aggies nearly rallied back from a four-run deficit in the second game before falling 5-4 for the sweep. Julie Stauder, Marissa Araujo and Alex Holmes each drove in two runs on the day for UC Davis.
UC Davis took a 1-0 lead in the second inning of game two. Kelly Harman started the frame with a walk and advanced to third on a double by Araujo. Holmes followed with a sacrifice fly to drive in Harman and give the Aggies their first lead of the day.
The Titans continued to trail by a single run until scoring five runs in the fourth. Trina Harrison had the big hit of the inning with a three-run homer.
UC Davis battled back with two runs in the sixth and added a run in the seventh, but ultimately fell short when the game ended on a fielder’s choice.
On Saturday, Cal State Fullerton scored six runs in the final three innings to overcome a 2-1 deficit en route to a 7-2 win.
Kelly Harman went 2-for-4 and drove in two runs for UC Davis (20-19, 4-5 Big West) while Erin Emde finished 2-for-3. Francesca Gonzales and Nicole Johnson each homered for Cal State Fullerton (19-17, 6-2 Big West) to cap off the sweep.
The Aggies are back in action on Apr. 18 when they begin a three-game series at UC Riverside. A doubleheader is scheduled for that Saturday followed by the finale on Apr. 19.
