The Cal Poly softball team finished its second consecutive weekend sweep with a 2-0 win over UC Davis on Sunday at Bob Janssen Field, giving the Mustangs a six-game winning streak.

Jenna Maiden pitched the full seven innings, allowing just two hits from the Aggie batters. The win, along with the 1-0, 10-9 wins in Saturday’s doubleheader improve the Mustangs’ overall record to 22-19.

It was Cristen Lee who got the scoring going for Cal Poly after she took first with a single just inside the foul line to left field. Sarah Iwata followed up with a double that snuck past the Aggies’ left fielder and advanced Lee to third.

Chelsea Green scored Lee on a fielders’ choice, grounding out to the pitcher and allowing Lee to cross home. Hitting a single to right field was Pura, sending Iwata home for Cal Poly’s second run.

Maiden struck out two, walked one and allowed just two hits and no runs in earning the win.

Lindsay Tognetti took the loss for the Aggies after recording three strikeouts and three walks while allowing two runs on two hits.

The Mustangs return to conference play next weekend when they head to UC Santa Barbara for a three-game series. Games one and two will be played in a doubleheader on Saturday at 1 p.m. and game three will take place on Sunday at 12 p.m. The Gauchos are currently in sixth place in the Big West.
