Cal Poly scores six in seventh to beat CSU Bakersfield

  Cal Poly's Zack Zehner went 4-for-4 on the day, all singles.

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.

Chris relieved starter Slater Lee with one out and runners at second and third and struck out the only two batters he faced to improve his record to 3-0. Reed Reilly closed it out with two scoreless innings and three strikeouts.

The Mustangs parlayed seven hits and two walks into six runs in the bottom of the seventh to earn their sixth consecutive win, their 14th triumph in 15 contests and 17th victory in 18 home games this season. Cal Poly is 24-4 overall while Bakersfield fell to 11-16.

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.
