SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif. - After losses in both games of a doubleheader on Saturday, Cal Poly's Sierra Hyland shut out UC Davis 6-0 in Sunday's series finale. Hyland, who is now 19-7 on the season pitched a complete game shutout after retiring the first 10 UC Davis hitters.
The Mustangs improve to 22-16 overall, 4-5 in the Big West. The Aggies drop to 14-25, 3-6.
After a lead-off double by Cal Poly's Courtney Tyler in the bottom of a second inning, designated hitter Shea William drove her in with a sacrafice fly that would prove to be the winning run.
The Aggies lone scoring opportunity was in the fourth when Alicia Paine and Kelly Zboralske reached base on a pair of singles. Hyland, however would go on to strike out catcher Lauryn Saunders to get the Mustangs out of a jam.
Hyland now ranks second in single-season shutouts in Cal Poly history with 9 and becomes the second Mustang pitcher with 200-plus strikeouts (208) in a season.
Cal Poly will travel to Hawai'i for a three game series starting on Friday at 9 p.m. Pacific time at Rainbow Wahine Softball Stadium.
