Dana Point native Reed Reilly saw time on the big stage, pitching for Cal Poly San Luis Obispo on June 1 when the Mustangs took on UCLA in the second round.

The outing capped what was an impressive sophomore year for Reilly, who was the Mustangs late-inning closer. Reilly led the pitching staff in appearances with 32 and compiled a 2.29 ERA in 59 innings pitched. His 14 saves led the team.
