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.
