Murphy struck out six over six innings and Cronin did not allow a hit over the final 2 1/3 innings. ... Cal Poly enters on a three-game losing streak, most recently falling 5-4 to Gonzaga, who the Mustangs beat 8-7 in 10 innings in their season opener. Two of Cal Poly's four games have gone into extra innings. ... Bradlee Beesley - a .167 hitter through four games - leads the Mustangs with 5 RBI. ... Michael Clark gave up three runs on eight his over five innings against Gonzaga in his first start of the season. ...
