San Luis Obispo Blues win third straight game

Mitch Williams and Ryan Long both drove in two runs, and the San Luis Obispo Blues never trailed Thursday in downing the Long Beach Legends 9-2 in a nonleague summer collegiate baseball game at SLO Stadium for their third straight win.

San Luis Obispo (11-4) jumped out to a 3-0 lead in the second inning, added solo runs in the third, sixth and eighth innings and had a three-run fifth inning, highlighted by Williams' two-run triple.

The Blues started the scoring in the second when Blake Johnson and Jason Adkins both drew bases-loaded walks and Nick King drove in the third run on a fielder's choice.

Korey Anderson pitched 5 2/3 innings to earn the win, giving up two runs (one earned) on five hits with four strikeouts. Four Blues pitchers combined to shut out the Legends over the final 3 1/3 innings.

San Luis Obispo will host the California Expos on Friday in a 6 p.m. nonleague game at SLO Stadium.
