DAVIS, Calif. - The Utah baseball team dropped their season opener to UC Davis, 3-0 on Friday afternoon.
Starting pitcher Zach Adams allowed one run on seven hits with two strikeouts over five innings. He earned the loss to start his season 0-1. Reliever Tony Vocca gave up two runs on four hits over three innings.
UC Davis left two runners on base in both the second and third innings before putting a run on the board in the fourth with an RBI single from John Williams.
The Utes left two runners on in the fourth and eighth innings. UC Davis added to its total with a run in the sixth inning, and added to it in the eighth as Williams had his second RBI hit of the day.
Dayne Quist earned the win on the mound for the Aggies, allowing three hits with 12 strikeouts over six innings.
"Give credit to Quist, who was outstanding for them today," Utah head coach Bill Kinneberg said. "He got us out of sync and we didn't adjust very well.
"I thought we played good defense, but we didn't have a great day on the mound. We have a chance to get back after it tomorrow."
Utah and UC Davis continue their four-game series on Saturday, Feb. 18, at 1:00 p.m. PT.
