The Cal Poly baseball team improved to 13-1 with two wins at Kansas State on Friday. The Mustangs won the first game of the doubleheader 13-10 and the second game 6-2. The teams will play the third and final game of the series in Manhattan, Kansas on Saturday at 12:00pm.
In game one, Cal Poly overcame a rare inefficient start by senior Joey Wagman. Wagman allowed six runs (five earned) in 5 1/3 innings before being relieved by sophomore Taylor Chris. Chris allowed two straight walks before giving way to Reid Reilly. Reilly pitched the final 3 2/3 innings for his sixth save. The sophomore gave up three runs, two of them earned in the ninth. Those are the first earned runs he's given up in 14 innings this season.
Wagman still earned the win to improve to 3-1 as freshman designated hitter Brian Mundell hit two home runs and drove in four runs while freshman left fielder John Schuknecht added a three-run homer. Jimmy Allen, Nick Torres and David Armendariz each added two hits for the Mustangs, who jumped out to a 10-4 lead in the sixth inning.
In game two, Cal Poly broke a 1-1 tie with four runs in the eighth inning. Nick Torres singled in a run before Mundell hit a three run homer, his third homerun of the day.
Kansas State scored once in the bottom of the eighth before the Mustangs added an insurance run in the ninth.
Cal Poly starter Matt Imhof allowed one run in six innings, he struck out five while allowing six hits and two walks. The sophomore did not factor in the decision, junior Michael Holback (2-0) got the win by allowing one run in three innings.
The two losses drop Kansas State to 8-5 on the season.
Cal Poly is ranked 21st in the nation by Collegiate Baseball Newspaper.
