SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif. — Several former Cal Poly baseball players have boosted their batting averages over the last two weeks, including Brian Mundell, Mike Miller, Peter Van Gansen and Zack Zehner in Triple-A.

Mundell (pictured at right), who missed a week with an undisclosed injury, is back with the Albuquerque Isotopes and is hitting .361 with three home runs and 17 RBI in 18 games. Mundell hit a grand slam at Tacoma on Monday.

Miller sports a .310 average at Pawtucket. He put together a five-game stretch of going 10-for-21 with two doubles and one home run to lift his average to .381 before cooling off.

At El Paso, Van Gansen is hitting .312, thanks in part to a two-run home run at Fresno on May 1. He hit .400 (6-for-15) in his first five games with the Chihuahuas.

Zehner is hitting .273 at Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, going 8-for-26 (.310) in his last eight games, including three singles against Syracuse on April 26.

Cal Poly's lone Major Leaguer is outfielder Mitch Haniger with the Seattle Mariners. Haniger is hitting .235 with 12 doubles, nine home runs and 22 RBI in 37 games so far. His average has slipped 35 points as Haniger has gone 6-for-42 (.143) in his last 11 starts.

Alex McKenna is out of extended spring training and has gone 3-for-9 in his first three games at Quad Cities while Mark Mathias, hitting .197 in late April, has gone 9-for-29 (.310) in his last seven games to lift his average 36 points at Columbus.

Nick Meyer is hitting .300 at St. Lucie, going 6-for-10 in his first three games of the month of May while Nick Torres sports a .276 mark with seven home runs and 25 RBI in 26 games with Puebla of the Mexican League.
