The first win this season for the Cal Poly baseball team was a big one.
The Mustangs (1-6) won at 21st-ranked Fresno State (6-1) on Tuesday night, 11-4, coming alive for 11 hits and forcing the Bulldogs to use six pitchers at Pete Beiden Field.
Former Cuesta College and San Luis Obispo Rattlers standout Mike Miller led Cal Poly at the plate by going 4 for 5 with three runs and one sacrifice-fly RBI.
It was the second game in a row with four hits for Miller, a junior shortstop from De La Salle High in Concord. He’s batting .609 on the season.
Bobby Crocker and Elliot Stewart added two hits each for the Mustangs, and junior star second baseman Matt Jensen had three RBI.
Starter Joey Wagman (1-1) earned the win for the Mustangs, scattering four hits and giving up just two earned runs in five innings of work. He had four strikeouts and walked three batters.
Frankie Reed then came on to pitch three shutout innings of one-hit ball before Jeff Johnson also gave up just one hit in a scoreless ninth, striking out two of the four batters he faced.
The Mustangs, who’ve played all of their games away from San Luis Obispo so far, will open their home schedule by hosting Valparaiso for a three-game series at Baggett Stadium, starting with a 6 p.m. game Friday.
