Jonathan Vastine was also a problem for the Lumberman, reaching base four times while going 1-2 with a stolen base.
Starting for Duluth was Harrison Kreiling (Nebraska-Omaha). Despite walking 8 batters, the Nebraska native was able to record 5.1 innings while allowing a run with 6 strikeouts. His record advanced to 3-1. Isaac Cychosz (Bryant Stranton College) was terrific out of the bullpen, tossing 3.1 innings of scoreless relief.
The Loggers lone run did not come until the 7th inning on an RBI base-knock by leadoff hitter Brennan Holt (Oklahoma State). Carson Hornung (South Carolina) extended his hitting streak to 10 games by going 2-4. Josh Stevenson (LSU) also had a productive night, going 1-2 with 3 walks.
