BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - Former Bakersfield Christian pitcher Casey Bloomquist returned to town and pitched his Cal Poly Mustangs to a 5-2 victory over Cal State Bakersfield Tuesday night at Hardt Field.
Bloomquist gave up just up two hits and had five strikeouts over six solid innings to earn his first win of the year (1-0).
The game was tied at one in the fourth but the Mustangs Peter Van Gansen's single brought Garrett Pierce home to give Cal Poly a 2-1 lead it wouldn't relinquish.
Cal Poly added to the lead when Nick Torres hit an RBI double for a 3-1 Mustangs lead.
The Roadrunners return to the diamond Wednesday night when they host Cal State Northridge at Hardt Field in a 6pm start.
