UHV Baseball & Softball Wednesday News

Posted: Updated:

UHV baseball played its second game in less than 24 hours Wednesday afternoon. The Texas A&M-Corpus Christi Islanders struck early and often Wednesday afternoon to hand the University of Houston-Victoria Jaguars a 10-0 setback, in a game called in the seventh inning due to the mercy rule.

The Islanders touched up five UHV pitchers for 10 runs on six hits and blew the game open in the first two innings with an 8-0 lead.

The Islanders (7-1) batted around and plated five runs in the first inning. Harrison Dinicola got the fireworks going with a two-run home runs. The Islanders would then add three more unearned runs, two on a two-run single from Scott Balfantz for a 5-0 lead.

Following two walks in the second off starter Gustavo Valdes (FR/League City, TX), Jackson Owens ripped a two-run triple and then raced home on a ground out.

The Islanders would add two more unearned runs in the seventh to finish off the victory.

The Jaguars managed to get at least one base runner on base in all but one inning, but never could manage a threat against six different Islander pitchers.

Zachariah Vela (FR/Victoria, TX) paced the Jaguars going 2-for-3 and collecting two of the teams' three hits. Chase Tamez (JR/Cypress, TX) picked up the other hit with an infield single to open the game.

The Jaguars will return to action on Friday when they open Red River Athletic Conference play against Huston-Tillotson in a 1 p.m. doubleheader at Riverside Stadium.

Angelica Davidson carried a hot bat last week for the University of Houston-Victoria Jaguars softball team and her play didn’t go unnoticed.

Davidson, a sophomore from Portland, has been named the Red River Athletic Conference Player of the Week for the week of Feb. 19-25.

The 5-foot-4 right-fielder went 6-for-7 compiling a 0.857 batting average, along with a 1.000 slugging percentage as the Jaguars split a doubleheader with Southwestern Assemblies of God. She also drove in two runs, scored two runs, had a double and finished with an 0.857 on-base percentage. She accounted for six of the Jaguars’ 13 hits in the two-game series.

Through eight games, Davidson currently leads the Jaguars with a 0.440 batting average, 11 hits, two doubles, six RBI and 15 total bases. She has a 0.600 slugging percentage and a 0.462 on-base percentage.
