Sophomore Luke Smith Dominant As Cobras Remain Unbeaten in M-WAC
The Cobras held of a late SRC rally to complete the sweep. After a scoreless first two innings, PC scored twice in the 3rd as Connor Aube hit a two-run homer. PC would score five times in the 4th to give the Cobras a 7-0 lead. Tyler Paulsen singled to make it 3-0 and Brendan Joyce executed a perfect squeeze bunt to push the lead to four. Trevor Minder drove in the next two runs with a single and the final run came home on a passed ball.
Luke Smith was outstanding on the hill as he worked the first five innings allowing just one hit while striking out 12. Jack Lambert came on in the 6th and was roughed up by Spoon River as they would score five runs, four earned, on six hits. Up 7-5, PC called on Sean Ferguson to close the game out and he delivered, shutting down SRC on just a hit and two punch outs.
Trevor Minder and Tyler Paulsen each had two hits in the game for PC.
