Parkland Forces Winner Take All After Defeating Heartland
Parkland 8 Heartland 1
Olson went all nine innings in the finale as he scattered six hits and allowed just one run. The key for the sophomore lefty was he allowed just one walk and was able to pitch around four Cobra errors. After Heartland took the lead in the 3rd, Max Downs would tie the game with a solo round tripper in the 5th.
Still tied at 1, the Parkland bats came to life in the 7th as the Cobras put together six hits, four for extra bases, as they scored six time to take a 7-1 lead. Tyler Paulsen got things going with a double and Nick Wisz traded places with him hitting a double of his own. A fly ball to right moved Wisz to 3rd and he would come home on a Christian Sanchez single. Bobby Barnard smacked a two-run homer to make it 5-1 and after a Brendan Joyce single, Aube homered for the second time on the day to push the lead to six. Tyler Paulsen hit his second home run of the day in the 8th as the Cobras had four in the game and six on the afternoon.
