Chris Hoo delivered a three-run double to cap a five run fifth inning in the Cal Poly baseball team's season-opening 5-3 win at the University of San Francisco on Friday.
The Mustangs outhit the Dons 14-7 as Hoo, David Armendariz and Jimmy Allen had three hits apiece for Cal Poly.
Joey Wagman allowed just one hit in the first five innings before allowing two runs in the sixth inning. Cal Poly's ace right hander scattered 4 hits and allowed 2 runs in 6 innings. He struck out 7. Reed Reilly earned the save with 3 innings of relief to close it out. Reilly allowed 3 hits, 1 run and struck out 7.
The game was scoreless until the Mustangs erupted for 5 runs in the fifth inning. The rally started with two outs and nobody on. Allen singled and then Nick Torres hit a ball that was misplayed by the USF right fielder. Allen came around to score on the error and Torres ended up at third base. Jordan Brower followed with a run-scoring single to plate Torres. Armendariz and Brian Mundell followed with singles to load the bases for Hoo. The catcher then doubled to center to clear the bases. All five runs were unearned because of the right fielder's error that extended the inning.
Cal Poly, which closed out last season on a 7 game winning streak, has now won eight in a row dating back to last year.
The Mustangs and USF finish the 3-game weekend series with a 1pm game on Saturday and Sunday. The four game road trip closes out Monday with a 3pm game at Santa Clara.
