    The Aggie softball team beat Cal 2-1 for the first time since 1978 which also ended a 15 game losing streak to PAC-12 teams. Sophomore pitcher, Brooke Yanez, who threw a perfect game against Sac State earlier this year, improved to 16-1 and has not allowed an earned run in the past 40.2 innings. Sophomore Alyse Rojas homered in the top of the 7th for the go ahead run and Yanez closed out the game.

    Outside of one or two games this year they have played really well. Brooke's only loss was in a relief appearance in extra innings under the "international tie-breaker" rule.

    Also, you would think that to beat a Pac-12 team you would have to play flawless, but the Aggies actually made 3 errors in that game yesterday (rare for them) and still out played the bears..

    Currently 29-7 with 17 games left. The previous UC Davis record for wins in a season at the D-1 level was set just last year at 27.

    Winning is contagious and, unfortunately, losing is as well. Women's basketball is a great example of this when you look at how the Aggies have dominated lately.

    On the other hand, UCSB's women's basketball is an example of how badly things can go once you start losing. In a 21 year span from 1992 to 2012 the Gauchos won 14 Big West Tournament Titles and dominated the conference overall. In the past 5 years they have not had a winning season. They have won only 50 games total including only 2 games in the 2014-15 season.

    Yanez tossed a no hitter today vs poly to secure a series win. She’s pretty damn good and only a sophomore!

    I cannot understand how they lost that first game with Brooke throwing. Picnic Day jitters? No Brooke is unbelievable in the circle.

    A perfect game and a no hitter and the season isn't over yet. Pretty impressive!

    1-0 loss; seems like more of hitter's jitters, than the pitcher.

    Definitely hitters jitters but that is how this team has lost several of their games this year. They just didn’t hit. Kibby looks to have worked through her early season struggles in the circle to be a great #2 but the offense has just gone to sleep on occasion. Tough to nit pick at a team that is now 31-8 though. Just crazy to think about.

    The battle for the Big West title is going to be a dogfight. The Ags are currently sitting in third place 2 games behind Hawai'i. The Rainbow Wahine are on a roll having won 6 straight and the Ags will face them on the island in their final series. The current 31-8 record is impressive but I hope we take care of business in the conference and bring home the Big West title.

    The Big West is tough. Fullerton, Hawaii and Long Beach treat softball a little differently that the other schools in the conference and the rest are trying to catch up.

    Its an interesting conversation to have though considering last year at this time the program had never had a winning season in Division I

    Up to 34 wins with about 8 or 9 games left. Would be amazing to see 40 wins

    I think they have a good chance at getting to 40 wins. They just swept a 3 game series this weekend at Riverside and are now in second place a game and a half behind Fullerton with a 3 game home series with the Titans coming up beginning on April 27th.
