SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif. - The fifth ranked Cal Poly baseball team used a 13 run second inning and solid work out of the bullpen en route to a 16-8 win over Cal on Monday afternoon.
The Mustangs slugged out 14 hits, including three apiece from Alex Torres and Jordan Ellis. Torres and Ellis also combined for six runs and five runs batted in.
Jimmy Allen and Chris Woo both chipped in with two hits and combined for five runs batted in for Cal Poly (20-4).
Cal Poly freshman Slater Lee struggled in his first mid-week start, surrendering five earned runs over just an inning plus of work. Lee gave up two runs in the first and then four more in the second without recording an out. Cal (11-12) scored six runs in the second inning in all, building an 8-2 lead before Cal Poly's 13 run outburst in the bottom half of the inning.
Mustang reliever Michael Dingilian fired three plus shutout innings of relief to earn his first victory of the year.
Cal Poly opens Big West conference play with a three game series against UC Davis at Baggett Stadium beginning on Friday.
