SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif. -- Junior southpaw Taylor Chris worked his way out of a seventh-inning jam for his third win and No. 6 Cal Poly erased a 1-0 deficit with a six-run seventh-inning rally as the Mustangs defeated Bakersfield 6-1 in a non-conference baseball game Tuesday afternoon in Baggett Stadium.

Senior catcher Chris Hoo, senior left fielder Tim Wise, sophomore designated hitter Brian Mundell and junior right fielder Zack Zehner all produced RBI singles in the rally and the Mustangs also scored on a bases-loaded walk and fielder's choice.

Zehner had a perfect 4-for-4 day at the plate, all singles, as Cal Poly outhit Bakersfield 10-7. Ellis added a double. Sophomore second baseman Mark Mathias, who went 27-for-57 (.474) during a 17-game hitting streak, was 0-for-5 Tuesday.

Shortstop Mylz Jones and left fielder Garrett Pierce both had a pair of hits for the Runners and third baseman Allen Gwynn added a double.

Bakersfield scored its lone run in the third inning on a two-out single up the middle by Jones.

The loss went to Hayden Carter (0-3), the fourth of six Bakersfield pitchers used in the game. Carter allowed five runs and four hits in one-third of an inning.
