Cal Poly baseball team off to best start since 1981

The Cal Poly baseball team moved a step closer to a school record for the best start to the season, improving to 7-0 by completing a sweep of Seattle with a 4-1 win Sunday at Baggett Stadium.

The Mustangs are off to their best start since they also went 7-0 in 1981. They were 8-0 in 1954 and 1974, while the 1951 Mustangs own the best start in school history at 10-0.

Bryan Granger (2-0) allowed one run and eight hits in eight innings, walking one and striking out five for Cal Poly.

Denver Chavez had two hits and has hit safely in all seven games this season.

Cal Poly took a 1-0 lead in the first inning after Jimmy Allen hit a two-out triple, his first extra-base hit of the season, and scored on Brian Mundell’s single.

Mundell finished with three hits.

Seattle (1-6) got a run back in the top of the sixth inning, but Cal Poly went ahead for good with an unearned run in the sixth and two more in the seventh inning.

The Mustangs had 12 hits and drew two walks in the game, but left 13 runners on base.

Cal Poly travels to Seattle to take on Washington in a three-game series beginning Friday.
