How can I use powershell to save an eventlog in exactly the same format as if I save the log from computer managment.  The following statement isn't even close.  Attached is the difference.

Get-Eventlog Security -Computer "serverName" | Out-file C:\Users\Username\Desktop\security.cvs
Computer-Managment.csv
Powershell.csv
