The Cal Poly softball team needed to score four runs in the last two innings of regulation for a chance to beat Cal State Northridge in a Big West Conference series finale Sunday, and the Mustangs got them, moving on to a 6-5, nine-inning victory and 2-1 series win.
Cal Poly (21-12, 2-1 Big West) trailed 4-1 going into the bottom of the sixth inning but cut the lead to one on an RBI triple by Emily Ceccacci and a sacrifice fly by Mariah Cochiolo.
The Matadors (23-13, 1-2 Big West) got an insurance run in the top of the seventh, but Cal Poly’s Lauren Moreno tied it up with a round-tripper that bounced to the wall and also scored Ashley Romano.
Kim Westlund’s two-out, run-scoring single in the ninth scored Cami Brown for the game-winner.
