Jered Weaver won his 12th game of the season without a loss as the fifth-ranked Long Beach State 49ers (27-9) beat the #31-ranked Cal Poly Mustangs (33-14-1), 11-5. The Big West Conference battle attracted a record 3,274 fans at Baggett Stadium in San Luis Opisbo, surpassing the opening night crowd in 2001 against Stanford.

Mr. Friday Night struck out 14 batters (the ninth time he has had 10 or more Ks in a game this year) in seven innings. Although Weaver gave up three runs in the first inning, two were unearned. He ended up allowing seven hits, one walk, five runs but only two earned. (Box Score)

SAT MORN UPDATE: Thanks to Repoz, you can also read an account of the game from the Santa Maria Times--an article that includes a few quotes from Weaver.
