The Cal Poly baseball team overcame a 3-1 deficit with a seven-run sixth inning, highlighted by Chris Hoo’s grand slam, and the Mustangs finished off a season-opening road sweep of San Francisco with a 10-5 win Sunday.

Elliot Stewart led off the sixth with a solo home run — the first of two he hit in the game — and David
Armendariz hit a two-run double later in the inning to give Cal Poly (3-0) a 4-3 lead.

The Dons (0-3) had two relievers fail to get an out and brought in Christian Cecilio with the bases loaded and no outs. Hoo promptly crushed a pitch over the wall in right for a grand slam, giving the Mustangs an 8-3 lead.

Hoo finished 2 for 4 with five RBI. Stewart was 2 for 5 with two homers, three RBI and two runs scored. David Armendariz drove in two runs, and Denver Chavez had four hits for Cal Poly.

Bryan Granger (1-0) allowed three runs — two earned — on eight hits in six innings. He walked two and struck out three.

KJ Edson (0-1) took the loss in relief for the Dons.
