Cal senior Anett Schutting claimed the Pac-12 Player of the Week honor for her contributions in the Golden Bears' two big wins last week, the conference announced on Tuesday.

Schutting collected the accolades after posting singles and doubles wins in both the 7-0 rout of Sacramento State and the 6-1 Pac-12-clinching victory at Stanford.

Schutting -- who has a 10-match unbeaten streak -- and the Bears play in the Pac-12 Championships starting Thursday in Ojai.

Two eighth-inning runs by UC Davis negated a tremendous start by Saint Mary's starter Corbin Burnes as the Gaels dropped another close contest and fell 3-1 to the host Aggies at Dobbins Stadium.

Saint Mary's (13-26) managed just two hits and got creative to plate the first run of the game, utilizing a steal of home to get on the scoreboard.

Ian McLoughlin's one-out double got the third inning started and the Gaels' designated hitter advanced to third on a groundout. Anthony Gonsolin extended the inning with a walk, and that allowed the Gaels to get a little tricky on the basepaths. With Nate Nolan at the plate, Gonsolin took off in an attempt to steal second. Davis catcher Spencer Brann threw to second and, once he saw the ball in flight, McLoughlin broke home. Gonsolin slid in safely and McLoughlin scored without a throw to put Saint Mary's up 1-0.

  • Stanford reliever AJ Vanegas stranded the potential tying run at second base as the Cardinal held off Santa Clara 10-9 in a wild non-conference game at Stephen Schott Stadium on Tuesday night. The teams combined for 23 hits and each left 12 runners on base.
