SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif. (AP) — Bryan Langlois hit a go-ahead bases-loaded triple in the ninth inning and Pepperdine advanced to the super regionals with a 10-6 victory over host Cal Poly in the San Luis Obispo regional on Sunday.

The Waves (42-16) got past the regional round for the first time since the winning the College World Series title in 1992.

The Mustangs (47-12) had come all the way back from a 5-0 deficit to tie it at 6 with a two-run rally in the bottom of the eighth. Left-hander Taylor Chris took the loss after mostly handcuffing Pepperdine through a season-high 6 1/3 innings in relief of starter Danny Zandona.

Pepperdine struck for five runs in a two-out rally against Zandona in the second inning.

Nick Torres and Jimmy Allen each had a solo home run for Cal Poly, which was hosting a regional for the first time in Division I program history.
