The Roadrunners scored 2 in the third inning to take a 2-1 lead. Michaels tied it 2-2 with a home run to lead off the fourth inning. Jimmy Allen gave Cal Poly a 3-2 lead in the fifth with a triple to score Mike Miller, who had singled earlier in the inning. Miller later singled home Chris Hoo in the sixth inning to give the Mustangs a 4-2 lead.
The Mustangs added two runs in the seventh. Jimmy Allen doubled and came around to score on a double by Michaels. David Armendariz drove in Michaels later in the frame with a suicide squeeze bunt.
Nick Grim earned the win to improve to 3-2 on the season. He pitched 1 1/3 innings of scoreless relief of starter Bryan Granger. Michael Holback and Chase Johnson each threw 2 scoreless innings to close out the victory.
Allen, Hoo and Miller each recorded 2 hits apiece.
