The Wolf Pack fell to 0-3 in extra innings this season, dropping a 4-3 decision in 10 innings Tuesday afternoon at UC Davis' Dobbins Stadium. The loss dropped the Pack back to .500 for the year at 12-12 while Davis improved to 12-9.
The Wolf Pack has now lost two games in a row to UC Davis dating back to last season after winning nine in a row in the series.
Mason Novak reached on an error by Pack shortstop Kyle Hunt to start the Davis 10th inning. Seth Batty then doubled on the first pitch down the left field line. Wolf Pack reliever Adam Whitt then intentionally walked Adam Young to load the bases with no outs but Steven Patterson followed with a game-winning RBI single to left.
Whitt took the loss to fall to 2-3. The junior allowed three hits and one unearned run in two innings. Zach Stone (2-1) earned the victory for Davis with three scoreless innings of relief.
The Wolf Pack took a 3-0 lead with runs in the first, fourth and seventh innings. Jordan Devencenzi singled home Hunt in the first inning, Trenton Brooks brought home Kewby Meyer with a ground out in the fourth and Hunt drove in Scott Kaplan with a single in the seventh.
The Pack also wasted a couple of scoring opportunities. Devencenzi and Brooks singled with two outs in the sixth but were left stranded when Brad Gerig flied out to left. Brooks walked and Gerig singled with no outs in the eighth but Kaplan struck out, Jay Anderson popped out and Justin Bridgman flied out to end the inning.
Davis cut the Pack lead to 3-1 in the seventh when Kevin barker singled home Nick Lynch. Davis tied the game at 3-3 with a pair of runs in the eighth on a two-run single by Lynch.
Brooks started on the mound for the Pack but faced just two hitters. Jason Deitrich followed Brooks and gave the Pack six solid innings, allowing just four hits and a run. Deitrich, who fanned three and walked just one, lowered his earned run average to 3.07.
Colby Blueberg allowed Davis' two runs in the eighth. The junior gave up two hits and two runs in two-thirds of an inning.
The Wolf Pack is now 0-8 when it scores three or fewer runs and 12-4 when it scores four or more runs.
The Pack will host Grand Canyon on Monday (6 p.m.) and Tuesday (noon) at Peccole Park. They will also play the Reno Aces later on Tuesday (6 p.m.) at Aces Ballpark to complete a unique two-stadium, two-opponent double header.
