The victory snapped a three-game losing streak for Rio Hondo and moved its overall record to 2-3-1.
LA Mission struck first in the contest, getting an early goal in the 10th minute by Willy Pocasangre to give the Eagles a 1-0 lead.
But Hurtado provided the equalizer in the 35th minute, scoring the first of three thanks to the assist from Axel Almaraz. The game remained tied at 1-1 before exploded he for a flurry of goals in the 53rd and 54th minute.
Angel Cardenas provided the pass on Hurtado's go-ahead goal while Odvan Gomez was credited with the assists of Hurtado's final scoring strike just a minute later.
Jafet Salgado played all 90 minutes in goal for the Roadrunners and put together the first shutout of the season.
