The Cal Poly baseball team’s streaks of eight straight wins and 18 consecutive victories at Baggett Stadium both came to an end Saturday in San Luis Obispo, where the No. 7 Mustangs fell 8-3 to Cal.
Cal Poly starter Justin Calomeni pitched five innings, allowing six hits and five runs, including a four-run second inning by the Bears.
The Mustangs (18-4) scored twice in the fifth on an RBI single by Mark Mathias, who came home later in the inning on a wild pitch.
Cal Poly tacked on one more run in the sixth, but it was not enough to continue a home winning streak that included the final seven games last year at Baggett Stadium.
Brian Mundell went 2 for 4 with a double for the Mustangs, who host Cal today at 1 p.m. and again Monday at 3 p.m.
Oxnard 5, Cuesta 0
Steven Pico was 2 for 3, but the Cougars (5-17, 1-8 Western State Conference) failed to score a run for the second straight game.
Cuesta’s Scott Romuk pitched seven innings, giving up eight hits, one walk and four earned runs with three strikeouts.
