Olson Sharp as Cobras Win M-WAC Opener
Jarret Olson and Garrett Acton combined to allow just one run on one hit while striking out 11. Olson survived a lack of control early, as he stranded three baserunners in the opening inning. Parkland would give him all the run support he would need in the 2nd, scoring four times. Trevor Minder and Damian Pierce started the inning with singles and Minder came home on a Max Downs double. Tyler Paulsen followed with a run scoring single and Connor Aube drove home a run as he reached on a fielders choice. Aube promptly stole 2nd and 3rd and he scored on a Trystin Raikes single. PC added an unearned run in the 3rd, scored on a wild pitch in the 4th, and scored three more times in the 6th as Logger pitchers issued three walks and hit two batters in the inning. Olson worked the first 6 innings allowing one run on no hits, he struck out nine but walked six before giving way to Acton in the 7th. Acton gave up a base hit but struck out a pair to wrap up the win. Raikes and Pierce each had two hits and Downs two RBI to pace the offense.
