Senior catcher Scott Kalush, junior third-baseman Paul Politi and sophomore designated hitter/first baseman Nick Lynch were named to the Big West Conference second team this week.
Kalush played in all but three of UC Davis’ 57 games this season, hitting .240 with five home runs, tied with fellow senior David Popkins for a team high.
Politi was a clutch performer for the Aggies this season, recording a walk-off home run against Pacific and a walk-off single against Cal Poly. The Los Gatos, Calif. native led UC Davis with a .345 batting average and 32 RBI.
Lynch was a strong power hitter for the Aggies. Playing primarily as a designated hitter, Lynch hit .303 with four home runs on the season in just 40 starts.
Senior starting pitcher Anthony Kubpens was also named a Big West honorable mention. The south-paw went 5-4 this season with a 2.46 ERA.
Overall the Aggies tallied a record of 27-30 this season — nine wins above their 2011 mark of 18-36.
