Hit after hit, run after run, San Francisco kept the offense pouring against Cal Poly.
The Mustangs were outhit 10-17 in an 11-5 loss in the final game of the series. The loss marks the second loss against the USF Dons of the three-game non-conference series this weekend.
After falling to the Dons 5-0 in the first game of the series and rebounding to a 7-3 win, The Mustangs couldn’t piece together enough runs in the third game.
After trailing 4-1, Cal Poly pulled within one run with two runs in the third inning and another run in the fifth on J.J. Thompson’s first home run of the season, a leadoff shot to left-center field.
But San Francisco scored the next seven runs of the game to pull away.
Sophomore left-hander Kyle Anderson (0-1) suffered the loss, giving up five runs and nine hits in 5 1/3 innings with one walk and two strikeouts.
Freshman right fielder Mitch Haniger had a 3-for-3 game with a walk.
In the first game of Sunday’s double-header, Mason Radeke scattered four hits over 8 1/3 innings.
Radeke (2-0) struck out eight Dons and allowed two walks and three runs for the win. Mark DeVincenzi secured the final two outs, one via strikeout.
San Francisco scored first on a solo home run by Stephen Yarrow in the second inning, but Cal Poly scored four times in the third inning and never looked back.
Haniger homered leading off the fourth, his second of the year. Luke Yoder singled to knock in the fifth-inning run and Matt Jensen’s comebacker tallied the final Mustang run in the eighth.
Catcher Ryan Lipkin homered for San Francisco in the fifth and the Dons scored their final run in the ninth on a sacrifice fly by shortstop Derrick Poppert.
First baseman David Van Ostrand and catcher Elliot Stewart each had two of Cal Poly’s nine hits.
Friday, a Nik Balog three-run homerun and a two-run RBI effort by Yarrow, were the only runs put on the board. All were in favor of USF.
