Cal Poly 5, Sacramento State 4
Zack Zehner rocketed a solo homer in the second inning to put the Mustangs (47-11) up 2-0 and John Schuknecht provided a two-run double in the fourth inning to make it 5-1.
SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif. — Things pretty much went the way Cal Poly head coach Larry Lee drew them up in Sunday afternoon’s elimination game.
He said as much himself after the game.
“It kind of went the way it was scripted,” Lee said. “[Justin] Calomeni came out and gave us some quality outs. [Bryan] Granger came in, did what he needed to do to shorten the game to get to [Reed] Reilly.
“This is the fifth game of this Regional and there’s been four one-run ballgame and one two-run game. Just shows you how competitive this Regional is.”
The Mustangs scored in each of the first four innings, building a 5-1 lead and held on as Sacramento State scrapped back before falling 6-5.
SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif. — After losing 4-2 to Cal Poly on Friday night, first baseman Rhys Hoskins said Sacramento State wasn’t going to go “two-and-que” (being eliminated after losing the two first games).
The MLB Draft prospect did his part to assure that the Hornets’ season didn’t end Saturday afternoon at Baggett Stadium. Hoskins reached base three times and cut down the potential tying runner at home in the ninth inning.
Sacramento State (40-23) scored three runs in the eighth inning to break a 2-2 tie and then held on through a wild ninth inning. In the final frame, Arizona State big bopper RJ Ybarra knocked a two-run homer and the Sun Devils (33-24) put the tying runner on third base, but Hoskins fired home on a chopper and got runner Drew Stankiewicz hung in a rundown. Alex Palsha finished off the game by striking out Trever Allen on a high curveball.
