CSUB's Cody Hendriks recovers the infield grounder and throws it to first base during Friday night's game against Cal Poly.

The outlook was grim for the Cal State Bakersfield baseball team after Friday night.

Coming off the high of their series win at Hawaii, the Roadrunners had fallen flat in their first game back at Hardt Field, allowing 18 hits and committing three errors in a 12-4 loss to Cal Poly. They had previously lost all six times they entered the second game of a three-game series after an opening defeat, leaving little hope for their ability to recover the next day.
