The Blues stayed perfect at home this summer with a come-from-behind 11-6 win over the Conejo Oaks on Thursday night. San Luis Obispo, which is ranked 8th in the nation this week, improved to 13-0 at home and 18-4 overall.
The Blues fell behind quickly 2-0 to the Oaks in the first inning before tying it with two of their own in the bottom half. The Oaks took advantage of a few Blues errors to build a 6-4 lead into the bottom of the sixth inning. San Luis Obispo's offense received a much needed jolt on a solo home run to left by Sean Ullrich to start a 3-run rally.
Derek Miller and catcher Daniel Gardner added run-scoring singles in the sixth to give the Blues the lead for good 7-6 after six.
Former Cuesta infielder Zack Dominguez clubbed a 2-run triple to deep right field in the seventh to pad the lead.
Cal Poly's Bryan Granger earned his first win of the summer with 2 innings of solid relief. He allowed 1 run and struck out 3. Drake Owenby struck out the side in the eighth and ninth innings to pick up the save.
The Blues host Santa Paula on Friday at 6 pm. The Halos, who beat SLO earlier in the season, are 4-2 in California Collegiate League action and in first place ahead of the defending league champion Blues, who are 7-4 in league. The Oaks are 5-6 in CCL action.
