After striking out 764 batters in three varsity seasons at Arroyo Grande High School, Jillian Compton was back on the Central Coast pitching for Fresno State.
The Bulldogs played a doubleheader at Cal Poly and Compton pitched game one. The true freshman gave up an un-earned run in the first inning but had a 3-1 lead going into the bottom of the fourth. The Mustangs scored twice in the fourth and then three times in the sixth, the final two runs coming on a Whitley Gerhart home run. Cal Poly won the first game, 6-5.
Compton pitched all six innings for Fresno State, allowing five earned runs. She gave up nine hits and three walks while striking out three. Her record drops to 8-10.

The split moves Cal Poly's overall record to 12-20-1, the Bulldogs are now 19-14. The Mustangs return to Big West play with two games at Cal State Fullerton on Friday and one game on Saturday. The Mustangs are 1-2 in conference play.
