The win allowed the 49ers (16-20, 4-2 Big West) to complete a three-game series sweep of the Mustangs (8-25, 1-5 Big West). LBSU also matched a season-high with its third straight win.
Petty (3-1) picked up the win allowing just two hits in four innings. She struck out four to claim her second win of the weekend. Jones-Wesley earned her first save of the season allowing an unearned run on two hits. She fanned three Mustang hitters in three innings.
LBSU jumped out to a 1-0 lead with a run in the top of the third. Megan Denio led off the inning with a triple, before scoring on a wild pitch by Jordan Yates.
The 49ers added another run in the top of the fourth. Nalani St. Germain, who led off the inning with a walk, scored on a one-out error by shortstop Kim Westlund. Shayna Kimbrough hit a grounder to Westlund who committed the error allowing St. Germain to score from third.
Cal Poly climbed within a run in the fifth with an unearned run, but Jones-Wesley finished off the Mustangs to clinch the series sweep.
Long Beach State returns to action next weekend when the 49ers visit UC Davis for a three-game series. The teams play a doubleheader Saturday and a single game on Sunday.
