Cody Dufrene and John Tiedemann led the San Luis Obispo Blues to a 4-1 victory over defending national champion Santa Barbara and into sole possession of first place on Tuesday night at UCSB.
The Blues extended their winning streak to nine and improved to 12-4 overall and 7-2 in California Collegiate League play. The Foresters fell to 11-6 overall and 5-2 in league play after seeing their seven game win streak come to an end.
The two rivals shared the CCL title last summer.
Tiedemann, who just finished his junior season at Hofstra, earned the win. The former Cuesta and San Luis Obispo High star threw five shutout innings. He scattered 3 hits and struck out 4.
The Blues struck first in the top of the first inning. Bryan Peters tripled and scored on a grounder to shortstop off the bat of Ryan Walker. San Luis Obispo made it a 2-0 game in the second on a run-scoring single by Cody Dufrene that scored Austin Grisham from second base. Grisham reached on an error with two outs by the shortstop and stole second to get into scoring position.
Dufrene, a Nicholls State catcher, added a two-run double in the seventh inning to add key insurance runs. Dufrene, Matt Shortall and Grisham led the Blues with two hits apiece. The Blues outhit the Foresters 8-6 in the win.
The three game series continues Wednesday at Caesar Uyseka Stadium at 5pm.
