SAN LUIS OBISPO — When you win 18 of your first 20 baseball games, it usually involves a variety of means. In the Big West Conference opener Friday night at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, UC Irvine proved it not always uses distance but direction and, perhaps, more finesse than force that is needed to produce victory. In the end, the Anteaters (18-2), ranked No. 3 by Collegiate Baseball, used more perseverance than punch to produce a 12-4 come-from-behind triumph over the Mustangs (8-13)
