NCAA DII Baseball Final: #11 Cal Poly Pomona 7, Cal State East Bay 2
March 16, 2014
The Cal State East Bay baseball team was defeated 7-2 by visiting Cal Poly Pomona to split the four-game California Collegiate Athletic Association (CCAA) series between the two teams for the second straight year. The Pioneers (14-10) even their conference record at 8-8, while the 11th-ranked Broncos (19-6) improve to 13-6 in CCAA play.
"I thought [Michael] Pope pitched well for us," said head coach Bob Ralston, "but we didn't get any two-out hits with guys on base, and Pomona did. We didn't play our best game offensively or defensively today."
East Bay managed just five hits in the game, as Miravalles and Starnes each finished 2-for-4, and Daniel Carney went 1-for-4. Miravalles ended up going 7-for-17 (.412 avg) in the series. Starnes went 8-for-12 (.667 avg.) with two homers, four RBI, and 15 total bases.
